Improving Pharmaceutical Characteristics of Curcumin by Alginate/Pectin Microparticles

Abstract

This study was aimed at the preparation of curcumin-loaded alginate/pectin microparticles (beads) in order to enhance the pharmaceutical effect of curcumin as a drug for colon related diseases. For this purpose, three types of curcumin-loaded beads were prepared with different alginate/pectin ratios (100/0, 75/25 and 50/50) and studied in various… (More)
