Floating dosage form for gastric retention has potential to use as controlled-release drug delivery systems which providing opportunity for both local and systemic drug action. The present work was aimed to formulate controlled release floating tablet (CRFT) of Perindopril Erbumine using gas generated low density approach. To develop CRFT, the Perindopril Erbumine was selected as a drug because it complies with the suitability criteria for the floating drug delivery system and the controlled release medication was required due to its potent action and poor bioavailability. The present investigation was suggested that the bioavailability of Perindopril Erbumine was improved due to increased gastric retention time and controlling the drug release rate using the natural polymer SFG, HPMCK15M and Acrypol 934. The CRFT of Perindopril Erbumine was developed by using wet granulation method and PVP K 30 was used as a granulating agent. The study was given the assurance that SFG had an excellent controlled drug releasing property then HPMCK15M by forming matrix in the formulation. The Acrypol 934 was added to control the drug release rate in to formulation and found good compressibility and controllable drug releasing properties in to the final formulation. All the formulation was evaluated for Weight variation, Thickness, Hardness, Diameter, Friability, Assay, FLT, TFT, Swelling Index and Dissolution study.
