Abstract

Buccal mucoadhesive films and mucoadhesive gels of theophylline were prepared using Hydroxy Propyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC), Ethyl cellulose (EC), and Carbopol. The drug release pattern and stability of these formulations were studied. The in vitro drug release and in situ intestinal drug absorption were higher with formulations containing Carbopol.
