Abstract

Natural excipient such as gums and mucilage are usually used to formulate different dosage forms as novel drug delivery system. In the present review, we have discussed tamarind naturally derived polysaccharide used as a potential candidate for novel drug delivery system. Natural polymers have advantages over synthetic ones; such as they are chemically harmless, less costly, biodegradable and commonly available. Hydrophilic matrices involving natural polysaccharides are an interesting option for developing sustained release formulations. The utility of TSP and modified TSP as an excipient in novel drug delivery systems is the main focus of this review.

Keywords: Tamarind seed polysaccharide (TSP), Carboxymethyl -TSP, Grafting, Thiolated–TSP
