Pulmonary drug delivery is considered to be an alternative system to deliver drugs to the lungs. Pulmonary route of drug delivery gaining much importance in the present day research field as it enables to target the drug delivery directly to lung both for local and systemic treatment. A growing attention has been given to the development of targeted drug delivery systems due to the limitations associated with the conventional treatment of various chronic diseases. respiratory system is divided into the airway and the respiratory region. Aerosol inhalation and intratracheal instillation are used to administer drugs through the pulmonary route. The aerosol inhalation technique offers advantages such as higher penetration and uniform distribution of drug particles in the peripheral or the alveolar region of the lungs. The three most commonly used aerosols are ultrasonic nebulizers or jets, metered dose inhalers (MDI), and dry powder inhaler (DPI). Dry powder inhalers (DPIs) are used majorly for the treatment of asthma and COPD.
