  • Introduction: Biopolymers have been used extensively in the pharmaceutical field. Pectin, a biopolymer, has several unique properties that enable it to be used as an excipient or carrier for oral drug delivery systems. Accordingly, several investigators have identified the benefits of pectin-based delivery systems for oral drug administration. Areas covered: This review first describes the chemical structure, source and production, degree of esterification and gel formation properties of pectin… CONTINUE READING
