Buccal delivery


Developing methods to improve loca drug delivery to the oral cavity

  • Another new research activity has been an investigation into how short duration buccal iontophoresis can be used for the local treatment of diseases in the oral cavity.
  • Given the specificities and sensitivity of the region, therapy can be complicated and invasive procedures difficult to perform and/or unacceptable to the patient.
  • We have developed test systems to better approximate application conditions in vivo and focused on optimizing delivery kinetics and bioavailability for mono- and poly-therapy after short duration iontophoresis.
