Chitosan−alginate microcapsules were evaluated as a method of oral delivery of IgY antibodies. Physical characteristics, encapsulation efficiency (EE%), the loading capacity for IgY (IgY loading percentage, %, w/w of microcapsules), gastro-resistance, and release characteristics of these microcapsules in vitro under varying pH were investigated. Optimum physical factors were established for preparation of homogeneous, spherical, and smooth microcapsules. IgY loading% was not significantly… CONTINUE READING
