A term for the physical characteristics of a drug product—e.g., tablet, capsule or solution—which contains the drug substance and almost invariably other ingredients, such as excipient, fillers, flavours, preservatives, emulsifiers, etc.
In the article titled "GC Method Validation for the Analysis of Menthol in Suppository Pharmaceutical Dosage Form" , the menthol structure presented in Figure 1 was incorrect and should be corrected as follows.

Pharmaceutical technologists have developed a novel oral dosage form known as orally disintegrating (ODTs) or mouth dissolving tablets which disintegrate rapidly in saliva, usually in a matter of seconds, without the need to take water.1-7 The performance of ODTs depends on the technology used in their manufacture.8,9 The orally disintegrating property of these tablets is attributable to the quick ingress of water into the tablet matrix, incorporating the appropriate disintegrating agent and using highly water-soluble excipients in the formulation.10
The placebos used for placebo-controlled, double-blind studies of pharmaceuticals are not "sugar pills." These placebos are made from the same inactive ingredients in the same proportions used to make the dosage form containing the drug under study.
Using IDAS2, pharmaceutical scientists can rapidly evaluate two fundamental properties of a finished drug product (tablet, capsule, etc) simultaneously, the rate of dissolution, which is determined by the formulation and/or the manufacturing process used to incorporate the active pharmaceutical ingredient into a solid dosage form; and the rate of permeation of the dissolved drug substance across a human intestinal cell monolayer, an intrinsic property of the active pharmaceutical ingredient.
