Parenteral Texture Control: Pulmonary Delivery Products


PULMONARY DELIVERY

Pulmonary delivery has been used for years to treat respiratory diseases by delivering drugs locally to the lung. 

However, the latest advances are seeing drugs being delivered via this route for systemic circulation. The delivery of drugs to the bloodstream via the lungs is an attractive hypothesis, offering a non-invasive and rapid-onset alternative to injections.


Inhalation Drug Delivery via Metered-dose Inhalers

Aerosol route of administration targets drugs directly to the lungs and offers advantages of bypassing the first pass elimination, reducing the dosage frequency and minimising the 
extent of adverse drug reactions.
