Abstract

The Buccal drug delivery system includes drug administration through the buccal mucosa, mainly composed of the lining of the cheeks. Buccal drug delivery system provides a convenient route of administration for both systemic and local drug actions. Buccal films can improve the therapeutic effect of drug by increasing the absorption of drug through oral mucosa which increases the drug bioavailability by reducing the hepatic first pass effect. In recent years, many researchers are working on the delivery of drugs through the oral mucosa which have a high first pass metabolism or degrade in the gastrointestinal tract. Furthermore, buccal drug delivery has a high patient acceptability compared to other non-oral transmucosal routes of drug administration. It provide direct access to the systemic circulation through the internal jugular vein thus avoids acid hydrolysis in the gastrointestinal tract and bypasses drugs from the hepatic first pass metabolism leading to high bioavailability. This article deals with the development and evaluation parameters used at present and future role of the system for the treatment of diseases by incorporating different class of drugs.

UJPR follows the most transparent and toughest ‘Advanced OPEN peer review’ system. The identity of the authors and, reviewers will be known to each other. This transparent process will help to eradicate any possible malicious/purposeful interference by any person (publishing staff, reviewer, editor, author, etc) during peer review. As a result of this unique system, all reviewers will get their due recognition and respect, once their names are published in the papers. We expect that, by publishing peer review reports with published papers, will be helpful to many authors for drafting their article according to the specifications. Auhors will remove any error of their article and they will improve their article(s) according to the previous reports displayed with published article(s). The main purpose of it is ‘to improve the quality of a candidate manuscript’. Our reviewers check the ‘strength and weakness of a manuscript honestly’. There will increase in the perfection, and transparency.
