Our objective was to evaluate the chemotherapeutic potential of oral poly lactide-co-glycolide (PLG, a synthetic polymer) nanoparticle encapsulated ethambutol in combination with PLG-nanoparticle encapsulated-(rifampicin + isoniazid + pyrazinamide) in a murine tuberculosis (TB) model. Our formulation was prepared by the multiple emulsion technique and administered orally to mice for the biodistribution, pharmacokinetic, and chemotherapeutic studies. A single oral administration of the… CONTINUE READING
