ODTs Help Make the Medicine Go Down

Authors: Ana T. Rosie McLaughlin, Dr. Susan and Banbury, and Cornell Stamoran, Catalent

Since they were first launched in 1986, orally disintegrating tablets (ODT) have become an important part of the industry’s oral dose form tool kit. The authors, experts at Catalent, look at how ODTs have created a new market niche, particularly since the launch of Catalent’s hugely successful Zydis® fast dissolve. Topics include compliance, clinical performance, formulation, and the four-stage manufacturing process. As ODTs are likely to continue to be among the fastest volume growth rate oral l dose form categories, the article holds particular interest, especially in the area of delivery for biological injectable procedures.
