Oral delivery is the most preferred route of the delivery of therapeutics for treating a number of diseases. The challenge of oral drug administration is to assure a predictive and reproducible pharmacokinetic profile of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). Polymers play an important role to achieve the targeted release profile consistently of an API in vivo by various functionalities like drug protection from gastric juice, fast release and supersaturation or release within a targeted area of the GI tract. This book is divided into two parts, covering the fundamentals of oral drug delivery and the various aspects of polymer technology in oral drug delivery, from classification and synthesis, to applications and regulatory factors.
