Gastric floating drug delivery systems have been an avenue of considerable interest in terms of their immense
potential for better pharmacotherapeutic interventions along with site-specific absorption. These buoyant systems significantly
enhance the bioavailability and controlled delivery of several drug molecules. Scientific investigators have also carried
out substantial research endeavours worldwide in order to design a more systematic and intellectual floating systems.
The present manuscript is an attempt to highlight numerous recent advancements in the design of gastric floating drug delivery
systems along with various available commercial preparations. Salient applications, characterization aspects and future
perspectives of these multifarious systems have also been addressed.
