Gastric infections are mostly triggered by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a fungus that colonizes the stomach mucosa of more than 50% of the inhabitants of the world. Chronic H. Pylori diseasewas associated with stomach diseases such as peptic ulcer, chronic gastritis and stomach adenoc arcinoma. Current therapy for eradication relies on antibiotic-based therapies that are ineffective in about 20% of patients. Traditional method constraints optimize the creation of new techniques for fast,

Wide-ranging study has been carried out over the previous few centuries to create a type of gastro-retentive dosage (GRDF). This sort of dosage form can advance the delivery and efficiency of stomach-active medicines because the GRDF enables the medication to remain in the stomach for a sufficient time period. Various methods were used to develop effective GRDFs such as high-density systems, low-density systems, swelling and expansion systems, hydrodynamically balanced systems, superporous hydrogels,. However, there are both merits and demerits in these kinds of schemes. Intra-individual and inter-individual dissimilarities are obstacles to the growth of effective GRDFs in gastric physiology. Examples of these individual differences include gastric pH and gastric motility that have a notable effect on the moment of stomach retention and delivery of drugs. Some of these obstacles can be overcome by developing a novel mucoadhesive microsphere. The mucoadhesive microsphere is characterized by close contact of the MDF with the mucosal layer, thereby increasing the localized absorption of the drug. H2Receptor antagonists (H2RAs) have become first-line therapy for acid related peptic disease and GRDF especially designed for H2RAs and drugs against H. pylori, including specific targeting systems and leading to a marked development in the quality of life for a large number of patients. In this relationship, new formulations with improved absorption, improved bioavailability and improved acid-suppressing regimens are welcome Keywords: H. pylori, gastro-retentive dosage, mucoadhesive microsphere
