The Goddess of curcumin gives color to life !!!! Focussing on the criticle problem factors of curcumin – solubility, absorption & bioavailability that will successfully bring the curcumin into the market as drug. Converting the most active component of the turmeric (curcumin) into a suitable dosage form will give a new dimension for this potent herb. The scope of the present investigation was to formulate floating microspheres of curcumin to achieve a prolonged retention in the upper GIT for improved absorption thereby enhanced bioavailability. This handbook addressess the development, characterization & evaluation of floating delivery system of curcumin... This reference provides a comprehensive layout for the curcumin dissolution method development & release kinetic mechanisms... The investigation showcase the influence of low density polymers in curcumin release kinetics. This guide provides comprehensive and essential reference for the scientists working in the curcumin formulation development from academia and industry, as well as young researchers intrigued by the fascinating field of novel drug delivery systems.
