Caption: Pill manufacture. A worker sieving potato starch at a pharmaceutical factory. The starch acts as a binder or excipient (a pharmacologically inactive compound) into which the active drug is mixed. Starches also act as a good disintegrant, making the tablet beak up quickly in the body to release the drug. Photographed near Kazan, Russia.
