Preparation and in vitro evaluation of chitosan-coated alginate/calcium complex microparticles loaded with fluorescein-labeled lactoferrin.


An attempt was made to prepare FITC-labeled-lactoferrin (LF-FTC)-loaded microparticles, durable under gastrointestinal conditions, first by the combination of alginate/calcium complexation and emulsification-evaporation and next by treatment with chitosan solution. The obtained microparticles were examined for particle characteristics, in vitro release… (More)
