ABSTRACT:
The desire of improved palatability in orally administered products has prompted thedevelopment of numerous formulations with improved performance and acceptability. Mouth dissolving tablets (MDTs) have received ever-increasing demand during the last fewdecades, and the field has become a rapidly growing area in the pharmaceutical industry. Theunique property of mouth dissolving tablet is that they are rapidly disintegrating and/ordissolving and release the drug as soon as they come in contact with saliva, thus obviate therequirement of water during administration. this review also provides the detailed concept of some unique patents; technologiesdeveloped and marketed formulations of Mouth Dissolving Tablets(MDTs).The present investigation was undertaken with a view to develop mouth-dissolving tablets which offer a new range of product having desired characteristics and intended benefits. Mouth dissolving tablets are advantageous particularly for pediatric, geriatric and mentally ill patients who have difficulty in swallowing conventional tablets and capsules. The basic approach used in development of MDT is the use of super disintegrants like Crosslinked carboxymethyl cellulose (Croscarmellose), Sodium starch glycolate (Primogel, Explotab). Polyvinylpyrrolidone (Polyplasdone) etc. whichprovide instantaneous disintegration of tablet after putting on tongue, thereby releasing the drug in saliva.

Abstract
Microspheres constitute an important part of novel drug delivery system by virtue of their small size and efficient carrier capacity. Microspheres are characteristically free flowing powders consisting of proteins or synthetic polymers having a particle size ranging from 1-1000 μm. The range of Techniques for the preparation of microspheres offers a Variety of opportunities to control aspects of drug administration and enhance the therapeutic efficacy of a given drug. There are various approaches in delivering a therapeutic substance to the target site in a sustained controlled release fashion. One such approach is using microspheres as carriers for drugs also known as micro particles. It is the reliable means to deliver the drug to the target site with specificity, if modified, and to maintain the desired concentration at the site of interest. Microspheres received much attention not only for prolonged release, but also for targeting of anticancer drugs. The purpose of the review is to compile various types of microspheres, different methods to preparation, its applications and also various parameters to evaluate their efficiency.

Abstract
Insulin remains the most effective and durable hypoglycemic agent for the treatment of diabetes. Insulin is a major protein hormone secreted by beta –cells of the pancreas and is important for the control of diabetes. Insulin has an important place in drug therapies for insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type I) and for many patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (type II). It would be highly advantageous if insulin could be administered orally, because the oral delivery of insulin can mimic the physiological fate of insulin and may provide better glucose homeostasis. The desire to deliver protein and peptide biopharmaceuticals conveniently and effectively has led to the intense investigation of targeted delivery systems. The goal of oral insulin delivery devices is to protect the sensitive drug from proteolytic degradation in the stomach and upper portion of the small intestine.
