Title

Chitosan: a unique polysaccharide for drug delivery

Authors
Published in Drug Development and Industrial Pharmacy. 1998, vol. 24, no. 11, p. 979-993
Abstract The aim of this review is to give an insight into the many potential applications of chitosan as a pharmaceutical drug carrier. The first part of this review concerns the principal uses of chitosan as an excipient in oral formulations (particularly as a direct tableting agent) and as a vehicle for parenteral drug delivery devices. The use of chitosan to manufacture sustained-release systems deliverable by other routes (nasal, ophthalmic, transdermal, and implantable devices) is discussed in the second part.
