Formulation of poly(D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) microparticles for rapid plasmid DNA delivery.

An optimised water-in-oil-in-water double emulsion process for the microencapsulation of plasmid DNA in poly(D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) was used to prepare microparticles from a range of different PLGA formulations. This process has been developed using pharmaceutically accepted solvents and is potentially scaleable. Incorporation of plasmid DNA in… (More)
