The conventional oral drug delivery system, in spite of ease of
administration and convenience of therapy, is associated with certain limitations
especially for paediatrics, geriatrics, unconscious and travelling patients. To make the
safe and effective usage of drugs, fast dissolving/disintegrating dosage forms (FDDFs)
serves as an effective approach for rapid delivery of drugs. The present chapter is an
effort to describe the various aspects of FDDFs including the different patented
products and technologies, which are either commercially available in the market or in
development pipeline. A systematic study of various patents related to formulation,
packaging and evaluation of FDDFs is also provided. Thus, this chapter provides most
comprehensive insights on different FDDFs technologies through their patents and
innovative steps described therein.
