AN UPDATED REVIEW ON MODIFIED RELEASE TABLETS
For some time now modified drug release has been studied and used extensively during the development of pharmaceutical drug products because of its advantages over immediate release formulations. As per the forecasting by Global Business Intelligence (GBI) research, the growth in oral drug delivery market will uplift in the coming years. Modified release drug products allow at least a two-fold reduction in dosing when compared to a drug that is presented in a conventional immediate release form. Modified release drug products are designed to release active pharmaceutical ingredient over a longer duration of time; At least, longer than an immediate release (I.R) formulation. Many Pharmaceutical companies also utilize the proprietary advantages of Modified release formulations to extend the patent life cycle of commercial products thereby bringing in new business.
