Abstract Curcumin health benefits are strongly limited by its poor aqueous solubility and low oral bioavailability. This work was focused on the development and characterization of solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) for the encapsulation of curcumin for oral administration. High shear homogenization and ultrasonication techniques were employed to prepare Compritol SLNs. The physicochemical characterization of round shaped curcumin-loaded SLNs was carried out by monitoring particle size (lower than 300 nm), zeta potential (−33 mV), drug loading capacity (1.60%), drug entrapment efficiency (80%), TEM analysis and in vitro drug release. Stability (4 °C) was investigated over one month. Parallel Artificial Membrane Permeability Assay (PAMPA) showed a considerable increase of curcumin permeated when formulated as SLNs. A modified release profile suggested that curcumin molecules are solubilized into the solid lipid matrix. The developed SLNs were produced without the use of solvents and all excipients were GRAS ingredients; both technology and composition were suitable for food application.

Abstract This study aimed to prepare and evaluate mucoadhesive sponges as dosage forms for delivering solid lipid nanoparticles. For this purpose curcumin (Cur) was formulated as solid nanoparticles (SLN) using Gelucire 50/13, and polaxomer 407. The prepared CurSLN dispersion was thickened with different mucoadhesive polymers. Different concentrations of glycerol, and mannitol of range (0.25–20%), and (0–1%), respectively were also examined. The formed gel was poured into oblong molds and freeze...

Abstract To understand the effect of the physical state and composition of the lipid materials on the formation and performance of lipid nanocarriers, three types of carriers namely, solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN), nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) and lipid nanoemulsions (LNE) were prepared and compared. Quercetin was used as a model nutraceutical compound to evaluate the potency of these nanocarriers to increase bioaccessibility. Among the developed nanocarriers, quercetin loaded and free N...

Abstract Having achieved a significant bioavailability of curcumin by its incorporation into SLNs (C-SLNs) during pharmacokinetic (32–155 times) and pharmacodynamic (3–4 times) studies, our intent was to proof their targeting to brain. Hence, fluorescent/confocal microscopy, biodistribution and gamma scintigraphy techniques were explored to observe the presence of C-SLNs in the brain. 1 h post p.o administration of C-SLNs/free curcumin (C-S) to rats, blood was withdrawn, following which the anim...

Curcuminoid-loaded lipid nanoparticles were produced by melt homogenization. The used lipid matrices were medium chain triglycerides, trimyristin (TM), and tristearin. The mean particle size of the preparations was between 130 and 180 nm. The incorporated curcuminoids revealed a good stability over a period of 12 months. The curcuminoid-loaded lipid nanoparticles were intended for the oral delivery of curcuminoids. Therefore, the fate of the triglyceride matrix in simulated gastric and simulated...

Abstract This study aimed to prepare solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) of a hydrophobic drug, tretinoin, by emulsification–ultrasonication method. Solubility of tretinoin in the solid lipids was examined. Effects of process variables were investigated on particle size, polydispersity index (PI), zeta potential (ZP), drug encapsulation efficiency (EE), and drug loading (L) of the SLNs. Shape and surface morphology of the SLNs were investigated by cryogenic field emission scanning electron microsco...

Abstract A nano formulation of curcumin loaded biodegradable thermoresponsive chitosan- g -poly ( N -isopropylacrylamide) co-polymeric nanoparticles (TRC-NPs) (150 nm) were prepared by ionic cross-linking method and characterized. The in vitro drug release was prominent at above LCST. Cytocompatibility of TRC-NPs (100–1000 μg/ml) on an array of cell line is proved by MTT assay. The drug loaded TRC-NPs showed specific toxicity on cancer cells. The cell uptake studies were confirmed by fluorescent...

Natural products are fascinating molecules in drug discovery for their exciting structure variability and for their interaction with various biological targets, which represent the best approach to develop successful medications for many diseases. The scarce water solubility, low lipophilicity and inappropriate molecular size of many natural compounds, which undergo structural instability in biological milieu, rapid clearance and high metabolic rate, have severely limited their use in clinic. Na...

Abstract The research described here focused on the effect of sulfated red algal polysaccharides (κ-, κ/β-, ι/κ-carrageenan) individually and in combination with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and cytokines (interleukin [IL]-1β and IL-6) in whole blood model in vitro. The results demonstrated that, at high concentrations, carrageenans have substantial ability to modulate PGE2 synthesis and stimulate IL-1β and IL-6 synthesis. A low degree of sulfate and high ...

Abstract Rosuvastatin calcium (RCa) is a very efficient antihyperlipidemic agent, however, being a BCS class II drug, results in poor oral bioavailability. The present study focused on the enhancement of oral bioavailability of RCa with solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs). Physicochemical properties of the particles were evaluated by particle size (PS), polidispersity index (PDI), zeta potential (ZP), DSC, FT-IR, XRD, 1H-NMR analyses. Entrapment efficiency (EE), drug loading capacity (DL), in vitro...

Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile is a marine plant endemic of Mediterranean Sea endowed with interesting bioactivities. The hydroalcholic extract of P. oceanica leaves (POE), rich in polyphenols and carbohydrates, has been shown to inhibit human cancer cell migration. Neuroblastoma is a common childhood extracranial solid tumor with high rate of invasiveness. Novel therapeutics loaded into nanocarriers may be used to target the migratory and metastatic ability of neuroblastoma. Our goal was to imp...

Abstract Silymarin (SLM) is a mixture of flavonolignans extracted from the fruit of Silybum marianum L. Gaertn. which has been used for decades as a hepatoprotector. Silymarin has recently been proposed to be beneficial in type 2 diabetic patients. Constituents of SLM are poorly water-soluble and low permeable compounds, with consequently limited oral bioavailability. This study aimed to investigate the possibility of delivery of SLM via nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) to overcome these iss...

Abstract We previously reported that insulin-entrapped chitosan complexed carboxymethylated iota-carrageenan (CS/CMCi) particles exhibit pH-responsive swelling behavior. However, the particles’ stability in the enzymatic gastrointestinal environment, their drug permeability mechanism, and related in vivo studies have not been discussed to date. In this study, we investigated the stability, muco-adhesiveness, transport mechanism and in vivo assessment of the particles. The particles retained thei...
