Special Issue Information
Pharmaceutical excipients play a central role in the drug development process, the formulation of stable dosage forms and their administration. They are often the main components of any pharmaceutical’s formulation and crucial for its safe and effective use.
Over the last two decades, the development of pharmaceutical excipients has gained importance and a high growth rate due their demand as appropriate carriers or formulations for new active molecules, solubility-enhancing excipients, formulations providing a controlled therapeutic window, improved bioavailability or greater specificity, and non-toxic administration strategies for certain treatments such as chemotherapeutics. Considering the ongoing developments in the field of advanced pharmaceutical formulations, this Special Issue aims to gather and review the latest advances in the development of excipients and formulation strategies used to improve oral drug protection, absorption and delivery. Additionally, attention will also be given to advances in pediatric and geriatric formulations and emerging personalized treatments, such as 3D printing.
