At different stages of live human beings attach different meaning to the concept of health. In childhood development of the child is central to the concept of health. In this paper perception and issues of health at different stages of human life are discussed. In human life childhood is all about timely and proper development of the child physically, mentally, emotionally and socially to develop the child into a responsible adult. Children who face developmental issues or health issues receive specific kind of interventions which are absolutely needed for their condition. These interventions are different from that of adults like small dosage of medicine to children or different intervention of therapy in children than in adults. Similarly in adults the perception of health and issues of health also differ from other stages. The interventions too at this stage are highly specific to the condition those are trying to cure. Lastly in old age there is different perception of health, old aged people generally experience many physical ailments like arthritis, hearing impairment and heart related issues etc. care of these people must be done catering to their specific needs. Taking care of old people is different from that of an adult or a child. Older people need extra attention because in old age they usually are dependent on someone’s care.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Shreya Talreja, Dr. Shashank Tiwari ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/940 Thu, 15 Apr 2021 18:30:39 +0530 Mucoadhesive polymers for buccal drug delivery system: An overview https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/938 <p>Pharmaceutical scientists around the globe have been seeking to discover as an alternative to injections over the last few, transdermal and transmucosal routes decades.

Drug is the single active chemical entity present in a medicine that is used for diagnosis, prevention, treatment of a disease. Pharmacology deals with interaction of exogenously administered chemical molecules (drugs) with living systems. The two main aspects of concern are the effects of drugs on biological systems and the effect of biological systems on efficacy and metabolism of drugs. Drugs play an important role in improving the response of the patient in both pre-treatment and post-treatment phases. Drugs in dentistry act as a primary treatment modality as well as facilitator of dental procedures. With phenomenal growth of information on the mechanism of action and clinical application of drugs as well as rapid introduction of new drugs, pharmacology has become increasingly important to all dentists. Prosthodontics is that specialty of dentistry which deals with patients of all ages, hence making it more important to know about the local and systemic effects of drugs and their side effects.</p> <p><strong><em>&nbsp;</em></strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Dr. Gaurav Pal Singh, Dr. Vishnu Kumar Soni, Dr Teena, Dr Saroj Nehra ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://ajprd.com/index.php/journal/article/view/906 Mon, 19 Apr 2021 12:07:46 +0530
