  • Abstract

    To facilitate the development of novel drug delivery systems, the demand of new excipients has been increased. Excipients is selected and used because it contributes one or more functional attributes to the product characteristics. The quality of medicines depends not only on the active principles and production processes, but also on the performance of the excipients. In earlier days, excipient(s) were considered inactive ingredients, but they may have tremendous effect on performance of active pharmaceutical ingredients in dosage form. The magnitude of this effect will depend upon physicochemical properties of drugs as well as quantity and quality of excipients used. The aim of this article is to identify the various processes/factors that cause the drug-excipients interaction and regulatory implication of drug-excipients interaction.
