Oral drug delivery system:

Oral drug delivery system Formulation ranges from simple tablets to newer modified controlled release tablets. Involve use of various polymers, Metrics and hydrogel based formulations. Various modification in oral drug delivery depends upon - Dissolution – diffusion controlled release system - Osmotic pressure controlled system - Microsphere Based technology - Novel packaging

Dissolution & Diffusion Controlled Release system:

Dissolution & Diffusion Controlled Release system Drug encased in a partially soluble membrane. Pores are created due to dissolution of parts of membrane. It permits entry of aqueous medium into core & drug dissolution. Diffusion of dissolved drug out of system. Ex- Ethyl cellulose & PVP mixture dissolves in water & create pores of insoluble ethyl cellulose membrane . Insoluble membrane Pore created by dissolution of soluble fraction of membrane Entry of dissolution fluid Drug diffusion

Osmotic Pressure Controlled System:
