Abstract

Conventionally, all the delivery systems have been prepared by methodology of trial and error concept by manipulating one variable at a Time, but attainment of optimal formulation is not achievable. The systematic approach Design of Experiments (DoE) enables researchers to provide appropriate outline to develop a best optimized delivery system. Optimization techniques using DoE helps to provide effective and economical analytical tools to find the perfect solution for a particular problem. In screening designs, there is large number of screening factors in minimum number of experiments and beneficial to minimize the variables in a desired size therefore further experimentation may be performed easily by using these variables. Experimental designs and optimization techniques are the tools which are systematically used to categorize various types of problems that may influence development of pharmaceutical delivery system. Use of experimental design is the best approach to the screening and optimization of experimental factors. In the present review article we have focused on application of practically applicable experimental designs and optimization techniques for the development of quality and efficacious of pharmaceutical formulations such as, nanoparticles, Phytosomes, microspheres, liposomes, micells, films, nanostructured lipid carriers and tablets and which type of factors to be considered while optimization are also discussed.
