Abstract

MULTIPLE UNIT PELLETS SYSTEM (MUPS) – REVIEW

Akash U. Thakur*, Vidya P. Sable and Ujwala N. Mahajan

ABSTRACT

Compressed multiple unit pellet tablets/multiple unit particulate or pellet system commonly called MUPS are composed of polymer coated subunits namely pellets; which are embedded in an inert excipients matrix designed to overcome the difficulties in administering capsules and improved Physico-chemical stability compared to suspensions. The functional coating like drug coating, barrier coating, enteric polymer coating is usually applied in a fluid bed coating processor provides each subunit with the characteristic desired drug release properties. The size, shape and surface morphology of the pellets to be coated are the prequisite for coating of pellets. Design of MUPS involves formulating pellets by different techniques and further compression of these pellets into rapidly disintegrating tablets; disintegrate rapidly in the oral cavity for the delivery of coated pellets into the gastrointestinal tract or the site of release of the drug. In spite of the challenges like content uniformity of the compressed tablets, ability of the film to withstand compression force; MUPS occupy a prominent role in formulating drugs due to their greater patient compliance, process, formulation and therapeutic advantages.

Keywords: MUPS (Multiple unit pelley system), Multiple unit pellets tablets, Multiple unit pellets compressed Tablets, Disintegrating tablets, Cushioning excipients, compression velocity, pelletization.
