Keep reading to learn more about transmucosal delivery and how you can access it!
What Is Transmucosal Delivery?
Transmucosal delivery is a systemic method of delivering drugs through the mucous membrane. This could include the oral, nasal, sublingual, and anal routes. Not sure what this means? Imagine placing medication under your tongue or alongside your cheek and your body absorbing it—just like lozenges. No need to swallow the medication. No need to put greater stress on your digestive system. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?T
Let’s explore how it works.
Is Transmucosal Delivery Effective?
Oral mucosa is the membrane lining in the insides of your mouth. Its main purpose is to protect against bacterial invasion, absorb digested food, and secrete enzymes. For this reason, the oral mucosa is highly vascularized, meaning it is highly concentrated with blood vessels. This high vascularity makes the absorption rate of drugs through the oral mucosa extremely effective and quick. The drugs enter the systemic circulation directly, unlike those that must pass your GI tract and metabolize in the liver.
Transmucosal delivery is, therefore, an effective way to administer drugs. Below are some of the advantages of transmucosal delivery over injectable and enteral methods.
- It is safe
- It is non-intimidating and also comfortable
- It is convenient
- It is easy to use
- Drugs delivered through the transmucosal delivery route absorb faster
- It is non-invasive
- It is less expensive since no additional medical equipment is needed for the administration
And while all this sounds wonderful, the unfortunate news is that only a limited few drugs can be administered through transmucosal delivery. This is mainly because of how a drug moves through your body when administered through the oral mucosa.
Why Is Transmucosal Delivery Important When Vomiting?
Vomiting is the forceful purging of the stomach’s contents. It happens when our bodies perceive something we’ve ingested as potentially dangerous and seek to remove it. And since it is uncomfortable, painful, and even gross, we do not appreciate this form of protection. Albeit necessary, vomiting can severely restrict a person’s ability to ingest or swallow, making oral medication administration impossible. The condition is widespread in patients with intestinal failure, severe inflammation, intestinal obstruction, post-surgery ileus, or pediatric patients—when stress, nausea, or chemo-induced vomiting becomes too difficult to manage, transmucosal delivery might be the only solution.
In such a situation, oral transmucosal delivery can be an effective alternative. Since the drug onset can start in the mucosal membrane itself, there’s little need for the patient to ingest the medication.
Unlike intravenous and intramuscular methods, transmucosal delivery is less invasive. Another significant advantage is that it does not need special equipment or expertise for proper administration.
This is very crucial in pediatric patients, as a child’s body is still in its developmental stages, and some of these developmental factors cancel out most conventional drug administration techniques. Oral transmucosal delivery removes the major problems of palatability and swallowing, making it a safer alternative.
Why Is Soft Chew Important for Transmucosal Delivery?
Calcium tablets, select antibiotics, vitamin supplements, etc., are all examples of chewable medication. And while it’s true that soft chews or chewable medicines have been around for a while, it is only in recent years that no-swallow soft chews have become the preferred way for transmucosal drug delivery.
That’s right—medication in chewing gum formulations is taking center stage now as it is convenient and healthier.
The best part?
These soft chews can be administered any time of the day and don’t require water to help the ingredients take effect.
All you need to do is pop one into your mouth and go about your day!
