Pharmaceutical excipients are substances other than the pharmacologically active drug or prodrug which are included in the manufacturing process or are contained in a finished pharmaceutical product dosage form. The excipients control the release of drug in early assimilation process in places where it could cause problem like gastric irritation or stomach upset and damage tender tissues. It is also being used as an agent to increase solubility, enhancing therapeutics effects and as a stabilizing substance in a drug. Recently, pharmaceutical industry have seen usage of excipients in the manufacturing and handling process of a drug and in preservation of in-vitro integrity and stability of drugs.
The global pharmaceuticals excipients market is currently at its blooming stage.
