Pelletization techniques: Novel approach for drug delivery
Pratik Chaudhari, Raju Sonawane and Prashant Deore
Pellets are the agglomeration of small free flowing spherical particulates of fine powder or granules of bulk drug and excipients. Conventional immediate drug delivery is based on single/multiple unit reservoir or matrix system. The different polymers used with the superdisintegrants as pelletization aid in immediate release pellets like β–cyclodextrins, carrageenan, starches, chitosan, powdered cellulose, pectinic acids etc. Immediate drug delivery is suitable for drugs having poorly water soluble and belongs to BCS class–II. The different categories of drugs like H2 – receptor antagonists, antacids, NSAID’s, antilipidemic and diuretics etc. are studied with different variables by suitable techniques for better physical properties and it is characterized by different methods.
