Orodispersible Films: Towards Drug Delivery in Special Populations


Orodispersible films (ODF) hold promise as a novel delivery method, with the potential to deliver tailored therapies to different patient populations. Together with the current trends and potential therapeutic areas such technology can address, some of the unmet needs in terms of quality aspects and manufacturing of conventional and novel (printed) ODF are discussed. Overall, this article aims to stimulate further research to fill the current knowledge gap between manufacturing and administration requirements of ODF targeting specific patient subpopulations such as geriatrics.
