Aniket, Shama Parveen, Purshottam Sharma and Surendra Singh Saurabh

ABSTRACT

In the last few years scientific and technological advancements have been made in the research and development of oral drug delivery systems. The reasons of popularity of oral route may be primarily due to its ease of administration. Medicated Chewing Gum is a Novel Drug Delivery System (NDDS) containing masticatory gum base with pharmacologically active ingredient and intended to use for local treatment of mouth diseases or systemic absorption through oral mucosa. It is a potentially useful means of administer of drugs either locally or systematically via oral cavity. It can be employed for treatment of diseases of the oral cavity and throat, e.g. for caries prevention, or it can release drugs that can be absorbed through oral mucosa directly into the systemic circulation. Medicated chewing gums are excellent drug delivery systems for self-medication as it is convenient and can be administered discretely without water.

Keywords: Medicated Chewing Gum, Novel Drug Delivery System (NDDS), Oral route.
