Lyophilized Sustained Release Mucoadhesive Chitosan Sponges for Buccal Buspirone Hydrochloride Delivery: Formulation and In Vitro Evaluation


This work aims to prepare sustained release buccal mucoadhesive lyophilized chitosan sponges of buspirone hydrochloride (BH) to improve its systemic bioavailability. Chitosan sponges were prepared using simple casting/freeze-drying technique according to 32 factorial design where chitosan grade was set at three levels (low, medium, and high molecular weight… (More)
