Modern data are presented on the pharmaceutical application of natural polysaccharides, such as pullulan, alginates, hyaluronic acid, dextrans, pectin, chitosan, and arabinogalactan, which are already actively used or can be used in the future for optimizing different drug forms, water solubility and improving bioavailability. The emphasis on natural polysaccharides is made in relation to their good biocompatibility, biodegradation, hydrophilicity, good stability, safety, lack of toxicity, and adhesive properties. The indicated parameters are important and necessary for agents used for drug delivery into the human body.
- hyaluronic acid
- increased bioavailability
