ABSTRACT

Chewing gum is one of the very popular oral confectionary products. It is a potentially useful means of administering drugs either locally or systematically via, the oral cavity. The medicated chewing gum (antismoking chewing gum) has through the recent years gained increasing acceptance as a drug delivery system. The use of the chewing gums is also suggested for other disorders like the gingivitis, plaque, flow of saliva, as a mouth freshener and prescribed mostly by dental physicians. It is having a wider acceptability with the patients and that is why its popularity is increasing. From 3,000years the smoking habit has been the favorite pass time of people from different civilizations. People still posses this habit and the intake of NICOTINE is increasing in different forms like the cigarette, pure tobacco and cigar. Due to the increasing intake of tobacco, there is need for the development of the novel drug delivery systems for the smoking cessation. This review tries to explain the chewing gum as a dosage form and ASTS, also popularly known as the nicotine replacement therapy, considering the application of the gum to it and its other components which may be great help in future for smoking cessation.

Keywords: Oral cavity, medicated chewing gum, drug delivery system, nicotine, smoking cessation.
