Thermo-sensitive hydrogel as a carrier for topical drug delivery: A concise review


Author(s): Kristi Vaddoriya, Jigar Vyas and Umesh Upadhyay

Abstract: The main aim of this article is to give an overview of the selectivity of thermo-responsive hydrogels as a carrier for topical medication administration. Hydrogels can be created by physically or chemically cross-linking hydrophilic polymers, both natural and manufactured. The hydrogels can, however, go back to their original condition following a response as quickly as the trigger is removed because these alterations are reversible. Topical gel is a safe and effective therapy option for the management of skin-related disorders, according to clinical evidence, particularly when used for local action to prevent the adverse effects of other traditional dosage forms. Gels, cream, ointment, and paste are he avoids the adverse effects of other dosage forms. The aim of this review is to inform student about the importance of stimuli responsive hydrogels in system of drug delivery, also their mechanical action. Hydrogels are currently used in the production of contact lenses, hygiene items, tissue engineering, pharmaceutical delivery systems, and dressings- Application, properties, limitation and improvements of it. The main object of these review article is different types of hydrogels in specially stimuli sensitive hydrogel like-chemical, biological, physical stimuli sensitive hydrogels. It also include figure of different types hydrogels.
