The reasons that the oral route achieved such popularity may be in part attributed to its ease of administration and the belief that oral administration of the drug is well absorbed. One such area of research is design of Softgel technology. Softgel technology is one of the most attractive and promising approach for increasing oral bioavailability by means of increasing solubility of the poorly soluble drug.
