Orally disintegrating tablets (ODTs), also known as orodispersible tablets, are unique dosage forms formulated to improve their in vivo disintegration and dissolution rates. It is a big challenge to ODT producers to achieve a minimum disintegration time while keeping formulation simple and robust. The required advances in pharmaceutical manufacturing occurred when excipient suppliers developed multi-functional types for direct compression. Roquette's PEARLITOL®Flash, a combination of mannitol and starch, is a ready-to-use excipient for orodispersible tablets.
This article describes its application to formulation and how this delivers advantages like robustness and rapid disintegration time. PEARLITOL®Flash means problem-free ODT formulation.
