Diabetes is a chronic disease, which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. This leads to an increased concentration of glucose in the blood (hyperglycaemia).
The body is unable to produce or unable to properly use and store glucose (a form of sugar). Glucose backs up in the bloodstream and blood glucose or "sugar" to rise too high.

Buccoadhesives have long been employed to improve the bioavailability of drugs undergoing significant hepatic first pass metabolism. 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 the objective of this article to review buccal drug delivery by discussing the structure and environment of the oral mucosa, mechanism of buccoadhesion, factors affecting buccoadhesion, polymers used ,types of buccal dosage form and the experimental methods used in assessing buccal drug permeation/absorption.

Formulations of mucoadhesive polymers are of current interest in the design of drug delivery systems. Current uses of mucoadhesive based preparations include ophthalmic solutions, local applications to treat diseases, protein and peptide delivery etc. Several synthetic polymers are used for this purpose. Since the biodegradability of the synthetic polymers are questionable, so polymers and mucoadhesive materials obtained from natural sources are used instead of synthetic polymers. The objective of this article is to review the mechanism of mucoadhesion, techniques that are frequently used to study the adhesion forces. This article also contains structure of G.I tract, types of synthetic and natural polymers, their classifications and method of evaluation of mucoadhesive materials.

The present era is the era of science and technology. There are different branches of the science like Physical science, Life science, Chemical science etc. But among all, Life science is an important subject as it is directly related to the needs of human life.
Life science is changed to a great extent by the development of the Electron–microscopy. Life science knowledge consists not only of a collection of facts, but also more importantly of the way these facts are associated with and interpreted in general theories applied to human life.
Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CGCRI) originally proposed to be named as Central Glass & Silicate Research Institute is one of the first four laboratories decided to be set up under the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, the other three being National Chemical Laboratory,Pune; National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi and Central Fuel Research Institute, Dhanbad. Even though it started functioning in a limited way in 1944, the Institute was formally inaugurated on August 26, 1950.
