Lipid Nanoparticulate Drug Delivery Systems: A(More)
The aim of this study was to formulate and evaluate in vitro, ceftriaxone sodium lipospheres dispersions for oral administration. Ceftriaxone sodium lipospheres were prepared by melt-emulsification using 30%w/w Phospholipon 90H in Softisan 154 as the lipid matrix containing increasing quantities of PEG 4000 (10, 20, 30, and 40%w/w). Characterization based(More)
Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) were prepared with a combination of homolipid from goat (goat fat) and phospholipid, and evaluated for diclofenac sodium (DNa) delivery to the eye using bio-engineered human cornea, produced from immortalized human corneal endothelial cells (HENC), stromal fibroblasts and epithelial cells CEPI 17 CL 4. Encapsulation(More)
Background: Infectious diseases caused by multi-resistant microbial strains are on the increase. Fighting these diseases with natural products may be more efficacious. The aim of this study was to investigate the in vitro antimicrobial activity of methanol leaf extract and chromatographic fractions of the extract of Phyllanthus muellerianus (Kuntze) Excell(More)
This study evaluates the enhancement of immune response of birds to Newcastle disease (ND) vaccine encapsulated in 1,2-dioleoyl-3-trimethylammonium propane (DOTAP)-based liposomes. The vesicles of the liposomal ND vaccine were physically characterized for shape, particle size and zeta potential. The results of the analyses showed that vesicles of the(More)
Phospholipid-modified solid lipid microparticles (SLMs) of Phospholipon® 90G and 90H encapsulating the hydrophilic drug, gentamicin were produced and loaded into three polymeric hydrogels of Poloxamer 407 and polyacrylic acids (Carbopols® 971P and 974P). The SLMs were characterized by morphology and particle size, drug encapsulation efficiency, thermal(More)
An investigation into the suitability of mucuna gum microspheres for oral delivery of glibenclamide is presented. Mucuna gum microspheres were formulated under different conditions of polymer concentration and crosslinking time at constant speed. The formulated microspheres were thereafter loaded with glibenclamide by the remote loading process. The(More)
INTRODUCTION The application of vesicular carrier formulations has generated promise of overcoming some problems associated with drug delivery arising from not only the physicochemical properties of the drug but also those of the biological barriers, such as the membrane linings of various body tissues and the skin. This review article discusses the(More)
There is increasing interest in the search for improved drug delivery systems with greater versatility. Consequently, many drug delivery systems have been studied. In this study, surface-modified lipid nanocontainers were formulated with a homolipid from Capra hircus (goat fat) templated with a heterolipid (Phospholipon 90G) which was also the surface(More)
UNLABELLED CONTEXTS: Artemisinins and its derivatives are considered the basis in the treatment of Plasmodium falciparum malaria due to their high potency and rapid action. However, they have short half life, low solubility, and poor oral bioavailability, hence the need to formulate sustained release lipid particulate dosage form of these drugs. (More)
