Improving Palatability Oral Dosage Form
Time: 11:20 - 11:40
Date: 28 September
Theatre: Room B
One of the major huddles in formulation is to improve the palatability of oral dosage forms, especially now when we are developing medicines for paediatrics and geriatric populations. Palatability is one pharmaceutical attribute of dosage forms which affect patient’s acceptability of an oral medicinal product and it is crucial for compliance to their treatment. The non-acceptance of a medicine due to the bad taste can have detrimental consequences on the treatment outcome if the medicine is partially or not taken, leading to suboptimal therapeutic effect to no effect at all. In this presentation we will discuss how we can improve the palatability of oral dosage forms.
