Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microencapsulation is one of the techniques able to overcome the drug stability problem, and moreover, the possibility of formulating encapsulated drug delivery systems with controlled release rates. On these bases, microencapsulated dosage forms represent effective new therapeutic platforms. The active molecules are protected as long as they reach their specific action site. Most of the applied techniques of micro-encapsulation are based on modifications of the three basic methods: spray-drying, phase separation (coacervation), and solvent extraction/evaporation.

This special issue will cover the different interests of microencapsulation as a means to control or modify the release of drug substances from drug delivery systems. Since clinical efficacies have been reported to be improved by the encapsulation of pharmaceuticals, the bioavailability of drugs, control drug release kinetics, minimizing drug side effects, and taste masking of the bitter taste of drug substances will be discussed.
