Various Administration Forms of Nitrates and Their Possibilities
This article reviews the development and pharmacokinetics of a number of new dosage formulations (e.g. transdermal patches and buccal tablets) and new active substances (e.g. isosorbide 5-mononitrate) which have recently been introduced to overcome some of the problems inherent in conventional formulations of organic nitrates.
