Oral delivery of biologics is highly desirable given the expansion of biologics. However, development of oral biologics is a notoriously challenging task given the physiological barriers of the gastrointestinal tract, which severely limit oral bioavailability. The field has made considerable progress thanks to innovative materials, leading to novel delivery technologies.
