TABLE 1: RECENT ADVANCES IN DESIGN OF MULTIPARTICULATE PULSATILE DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS

CONCLUSION: The brief review on pellets and pelletization concludes pelletized dosage forms as one of the most promising and efficient pathway of novel and multiparticulate drug delivery systems. This technology has remained much of an art for many years due to its process, formulation and therapeutic advantages over single unit drug delivery systems. In addition, hot-melt extrusion and spheronization, freeze pelletization, cryo-pelletization, microtabletting technologies provides a wide scope to produce pellets. Today, pelletization is challenging and growing technique to develop pelletized dosage forms for a wide range of drugs which are unstable or have compatibility problems with excipients and hence the market for these dosage forms is growing rapidly and gaining popularity in an impressive rate.
