This review reveals the potential of mucoadhesive polymers and tablets for gastrointestinal administration. Prolonged contact time of a drug with a body tissue through the use of mucoadhesive polymers can significantly improve the performance of many drugs. These improvements lead to better treatment of local pathologies, improved drug bioavailability and control release of the drug to enhanced patient compliance. This review highlights the role of next generation mucoadhesive polymers and the benefits likely to occur with these improved polymeric systems. New mucoadhesive materials with optimal adhesive properties are now being developing and explored to enhance the application of this technology.
