Semi-solid Formulations

Part of the AAPS Advances in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Series book series (AAPS,volume 11)

Abstract

Oral dosage forms generally consist of solids (tablets, capsules, powders, or granules), liquids (solutions, solids in suspension, and emulsions), or possibly semi-solids such as pastes or gels. When one might think of a semi-solid dosage form, delivery systems other than oral forms could also come to mind such as topical gels, buccal delivery gels (delivery to the oral mucosa), or possibly vaginal, eye, or nasal. This review does not include soft chewable gelatin capsules but will concern itself only with oral delivery systems that are semi-solid in form.
