Film dosage form (FD) prepared using water-soluble polymers is an excellent technique by which drugs can be delivered to local disease sites. In this study, FD was prepared with the sodium salt of chondroitin sulfate (CHS), a natural polysaccharide, by the casting method. The disintegration profile of FD was assessed and the dissolution profile of the model drug from the dosage form was investigated. FDs containing atropine sulfate were prepared by using 4−6% of CHS. When the FDs were brought in contact with physiological saline, they swelled quickly and disintegrated resulting in CHS release into the medium. The model drug dissolved immediately from the FDs and almost the entire amount of the drug incorporated in the FD was dissolved after 5 min. FD prepared with CHS is an attractive dosage form that can be used for local drug delivery.
