Tech Brief: Mucoadhesive Polymers in Pharmaceutical Formulations

This technical brief will cover the use of polymers in a variety of dosage forms (buccal/sublingual tablets, liquid, semi-solid formulations, and oral care products) to impart mucoadhesion. The basic mechanism of mucoadhesion and methods to evaluate it in the context of pharmaceutical applications will also be reviewed, also how it can improve and differentiate drug products.
