Growing demands on a suitable formulation method that ensures the stability of the active compound coupled with the limitations of current methods (milling, lyophilization, spray drying, and freeze spray drying) has brought wide attention to supercritical fluid (SCF) technology. Advantages of using the SCF technology comprise its high abilities, adaptability in providing alternative processing methods, high compressibility and diffusivity of the supercritical fluid, capability as an alternative for conventional organic solvents, and the option to attain different processing parameters which would be otherwise difficult to conduct with traditional methods. This review proposes to present an up-to-date outlook on dry powder pulmonary formulations of macromolecules using SCF technology.
