A new Within the oral mucosal cavity, the buccal region offers an attractive route of administration for systemic drug delivery. The mucosa has a rich blood supply and it is relatively permeable. It is therefore better suited to the development of sustained-delivery systems. For these reasons, the buccal mucosa may have potential for delivering some of the growing number of drugs, particularly those of low molecular weight, high potency, and/or long biological half-life. Development of safe and effective penetration enhancers will further expand the utility of this route. Local delivery is a relatively poorly studied area; in general, it is governed by many of the same considerations that apply to systemic delivery. Also, research involving the use of saliva sampling as noninvasive qualitative and quantitative techniques has become increasingly important. Being readily accessible and collectible, saliva may show many advantages over ?classical? biological fluids such as blood and urine. The use of saliva as a specimen matrix for drugs of abuse screening has been cited in the literature for many years. Unlike venipuncture, saliva collection (by brushing the teeth and rubbing the gums) is painless, noninvasive, inexpensive, simple and rapid. The aim of this presentation is explore these potentials of the oral cavity, to review buccal drug delivery by with an emphasis on bioadhesive delivery systems, and to discuss the use of saliva in drug analysis and in therapeutic and toxicologic monitoring.
