Long-acting drug delivery has emerged as the novel and advanced drug delivery system which manipulate the dosing regimen of the drug in the body in order to sustain its therapeutic level.
Over the last two decades, the pharmaceutical industry has observed a paradigm shift from conventional drug delivery strategies to the long-acting drug delivery of products to treat several disease indications, such as ophthalmic disorders, oncological disorders, neurological disorders, and infectious diseases. The long-acting delivery of drug candidates confers several advantages, such as improved patient compliance, reduced dosage requirement, better medication adherence, decrease in failure risk due to inconsistent usage and more convenience to patients. In addition, long-acting drug delivery formulations can improve the chemical stability, solubility and polymorphic transformation issues of the active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Lately, many technologies are being explored to develop long-acting drugs in various dosage formats, such as long-acting injectables, depot injections, implantable devices, and combination products. Long-acting drug delivery technologies have come a long way with the inclusion of liposomes, microspheres and polymers for the fabrication of biodegradable and biocompatible delivery systems. Apart from this, the interdependency of the drug, excipient, and release environment play a crucial role to decide the release kinetics of the drug. Long-acting formulations are more patient compliant, in terms of a sharp reduction in the dosing regimen. These drugs are administered infrequently (ranging from once weekly to yearly) owing to the prolonged drug release after a single shot.
