Oral Disintegrating Films: Developing Issue for Efficient Performance
Oral dissolving thin films are versatile drug delivery platforms of drug administration for either systemic or local effects. The oral route is the preferred due to ease of handling, transportation and patient compliance. However, ageing population, which presents several problems such as poly pharmacy, dysphagia, and neurologic
conditions, results in noncompliance and disease complications. This challenge can be resolved by employing pharmaceutics approaches to reduce the incidence of poor patient compliance. Such solutions are expected to make swallowing easier and reduce the need to swallow several solid medications, which is difficult for
vulnerable pediatric and geriatric patients. In this context, oral strips represent the new frontier of drug delivery technology that provides a very convenient means of taking medications and supplements.
