Fast dissolving oral films

  1. 1. FAST DISSOLVING ORAL FILMS PRESENTED BY B.JAGADEESH BABU M.Pharm
  2. 2. OVER VIEW INTRODUCTION SPECIAL FEATURES GENERAL PROPERTIES FORMULATION METHOD OF PREPARATION EVALUATION TESTS ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES CONCLUSION
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION These are the drug delivery systems which fastly disintegrate in mouth with H2O. It was first developed in 1970’s alternative to tablets & capsules. It consists of very thin oral strip which is placed on tongue & upon hydration it fastly releases drug into oral cavity.
  4. 4.  Thin elegant film Available in various sizes & shapes Unobstrusive Excellent mucoadhesion Rapid release
  5. 5. GENERAL PROPERTIES Thickness ranges from 1-10mm & it’s surface area is 1-20 cm². Its low dry tack allows for ease of handling & application. Its rapid hydration rate facilitates fast softening & absorption. 2mm thickness of film will take 5-10sec to start its disintegration.
  6. 6. FORMULATION DRUG WATER SOLUBLE POLYMER SUPER DISINTEGRANTS PLASTISIZER SURFACTANTS FLAVOURS COLOURS SWEETENING AGENTS SALIVA STIMIULATING AGENTS
  7. 7.  SOLVENT CASTING* SEMI-SOLID CASTING HOT MELT EXTRUSION SOLID DISPERSION EXTRUSION ROLLING METHOD
  8. 8. EVALUATION TESTS MORPHOLOGY STUDY SWELLING PROPERTY CONTACT ANGLE DISINTEGRATION MECHANICAL PROPERTIES 1. Tensile strength 2.Elastic modulus 3.% Elongation 4. Folding endurance
  9. 9.  Convenient dosing No water needed No risk of chocking Taste masking Enhanced stability First pass metabolism can be avoided
  10. 10.  Easily fragile & brittle. Special package for protection during storage & transportation.
  11. 11.  These are having several advantages over conventional dosage forms like ODT, TABLETS, CAPSULES ,IV etc., so they are of great importance during the emergency cases such as allergic reations & asthamatic attacks.
