The development of this novel drug delivery system will provide dosage form with conventional mean of taking their medications. Difficulty in swallowing is a common problem found in patient with pediatrics and geriatrics, patients with problem of dysphasia, mentally ill, uncooperative and patients with motion sickness, sudden allergic shocks.
This type of dosage form provides very convenient dosage form. On administration of tablet will instantly disintegrate in mouth and release the drug which will be absorbed by saliva. So it prevent also first pass metabolism and provides better bioavailability.
Drug Delivery technology helps to transfer the drug from site of absorption to site of action. With the conventional therapies like Oral, Injections and topical formulations now transdermal, implant and nano technology are in demand. They have fewer side effects and more therapeutic effects which draw the attention of newer research towards them. We will discuss nano technology here.
The Greek prefix 'Nano' means 'one billionth' Nano technology mainly helpful in the encapsulated drugs for controlled delivery system.
Proteases enzyme present in human body which are responsible for the degradation of the different types of he proteins in the body and a major role in regulation of physiological functions at cellular level and tissue level.
Biodegradable polymers were intensely researched to help in the post-surgical treatment because they degrade in the body to biologically inert and compatible molecules. Due to this property biodegradable polymers offered a new approach in the development of Sustained release drug delivery systems.
Advantages of polymers as drug carriers are
The term ‘Technology Transfer’ changed the view of multinational pharmaceutical industries towards the developing countries. Intellectual properties are amongst the powers which make the nations grow.
Research and Development (R & D) plays a vital role in creating these intellectual property-based technologies. Technology transfer will help developing countries attain economical, social and technological advances. As generally observed, Developed countries are creator of the intellectual property and developing countries are absorbers.
Pharmaceutical companies, institutes and government labs will help in this technology transfer to share the knowledge and methods to produce suitable rational, geographical and environment friendly products.
Technology transfer is basically defined by WIPO as
‘process by which a developer of technology makes its technology available to commercial partner that will exploit the technology’.
