ABSTRACT:
Pharmaceutical industries are involving day by day. New inventions in medicines are changing human’s life and provides better medications. But the role of pharmacy is not limited to the earth, pharmacy sector can also benefits the space sector by providing effective medications to the astronauts in the space travel. But formulating the medicines for the space environment is not easy compared to that on the earth. Microgravity produces many difficulties in the stability of the drug products and is also affect the functionality of drugs in the body. Short space missions may not produce that much problem but when there is a deep space missions the health of astronauts become major challenge. This problem creates a need for novel drug technologies to overcome these problems. In this article a brief introduction of the microgravity related problems to the astronauts and to the drugs, approaches to formulate medicines for space travel and a short information about Astro pharmacy
