AIM To study the preparation and application of pulmonary surfactant (PS) nanoparticles as absorption enhancers in insulin dry powder delivery. PS is a complex mixture of mainly phospholipids and proteins. The composition leads to a unique spreading effect of the surfactants as well as spontaneous nanoparticles formation, which may be favorable characteristics of pulmonary drug delivery systems. METHOD In this article, insulin has been a model drug, as an important drug in lowering blood… CONTINUE READING
