The potential of nanoparticles (NPs) to overcome the barriers for oral delivery of protein drugs have led to the development of platforms capable of improving their bioavailability. However, despite the progresses in drug delivery technologies, the success of oral delivery of insulin remains elusive and the disclosure of insulin mechanisms of absorption remains to be clarified. To overcome multiple barriers faced by oral insulin and to enhance the insulin permeability across the intestinal epithelium, here insulin-loaded alginate/dextran sulfate (ADS)-NPs were formulated and dual-coated with chitosan (CS) and albumin (ALB). The nanosystem was characterized by its pH-sensitivity and mucoadhesivity, which enabled to prevent 70% of in vitro insulin release in simulated gastric conditions and allowed a sustained insulin release following the passage to simulated intestinal conditions. The pH and time-dependent morphology of the NPs was correlated to the release and permeation profile of insulin. Dual CS/ALB coating of the ADS-NPs demonstrated augmented intestinal interactions with the intestinal cells in comparison to the uncoated-NPs, resulting in a higher permeability of insulin across Caco-2/HT29-MTX/Raji B cell monolayers. The permeability of the insulin-loaded ALB-NPs was reduced after the temperature was decreased and after co-incubation with chlorpromazine, suggesting an active insulin transport by clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Moreover, the permeability inhibition with the pre-treatment with sodium chlorate suggested that the interaction between glycocalix and the NPs was critical for insulin permeation. Overall, the developed nanosystem has clinical potential for the oral delivery of insulin and therapy of type 1 diabetes mellitus.

Background The increased incorporation of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) into consumer products makes the characterization of potential risk for humans and other organisms essential. The oral route is an important uptake route for NPs, therefore the study of the gastrointestinal tract in respect to NP uptake and toxicity is very timely. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of Ag NPs and ions on a Caco-2/TC7:HT29-MTX intestinal co-culture model with mucus secretion, which const...

Although several strategies have been applied for oral insulin delivery to improve insulin bioavailability, little success has been achieved. To overcome multiple barriers to oral insulin absorption simultaneously, insulin-loaded N-trimethyl chitosan chloride (TMC)-coated polylactide-co-glycoside (PLGA) nanoparticles (Ins TMC-PLGA NPs) were formulated in our study. The Ins TMC-PLGA NPs were prepared using the double-emulsion solvent evaporation method and were characterized to determine their si...

Abstract Cell culture models are currently used to predict absorption pattern of new compounds and formulations in the human gastro-intestinal tract (GIT). One major drawback is the lack of relevant apical incubation fluids allowing mimicking luminal conditions in the GIT. Here, we suggest a culture model compatible with biorelevant media, namely Fasted State Simulated Intestinal Fluid (FaSSIF) and Fed State Simulated Intestinal Fluid (FeSSIF). Co-culture was set up from Caco-2 and mucus-secreti...

We present an experimental investigation of the mechanical stability of silica nanoparticle-based coatings as a function of the size of the nanoparticles. The coatings are built following a layer-by-layer procedure, alternating positive and negative surface charges. The mechanical stability of the multilayers is studied in water, on the basis of an ultrasonic cavitation test. The resistance of the coating to cavitation is found to remarkably increase with decreasing the size of the nanoparticles...

Abstract Oral drug administration is one of the most preferred and simplest routes among both patients and formulation scientists. Nevertheless, orally delivery of some of the most widely used therapeutic agents (e.g., anticancer drugs, peptides, proteins and vaccines) is still a major challenge due to the limited oral bioavailability associated with them. The poor oral bioavailability of such drugs is attributed to one or many factors, such as poor aqueous solubility, poor permeability, and enz...

The use of nanocarriers is being researched to achieve oral peptide delivery. Insulin-associated anionic polyelectrolyte nanoparticle complexes (PECs) were formed that comprised hyaluronic acid and chitosan in an optimum mass mixing ratio of 5:1 (MR 5), followed by coating with a pH-dependent polymer. Free insulin was separated from PECs by size exclusion chromatography and then measured by HPLC. The association efficiency of insulin in PECs was >95% and the loading was ~83 µg/mg particles.

Omega-3 (ω-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids are highly susceptible to oxidation, have an intense odour and poor water solubility, which makes its direct application in foods extremely difficult. In order to reduce its oxidation process and improve the stability in an aqueous medium, protein-based nanoemulsions were produced and characterized. Lactoferrin (Lf) was used as a emulsifier at different concentrations (0.2 % to 4 % w/w). High energy methods (ultra turrax and high-pressure homogenizer) we...

To date few polymeric vesicles have been investigated to improve oral insulin (INS) absorption due to their limited loading capacity. Therefore, an amphiphilic polyphosphazene (PEOP) containing lipid-like octadecylphosphoethanolamine (OPA) groups and amino-modified poly(ethylene glycol) at the proper ratio was designed and synthesized in this study. It was found that PEOP can self-assemble into nano-vesicles, which displayed considerable loading capability for INS by taking advantage of the syne...

Abstract Numerous types of mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) have been studied as carriers for small molecular drugs. However, few reports have been conducted on small MSNs having large pores, and that are suitable for loading and orally delivering therapeutic proteins. In particular, their protective properties against aggregation and enzymatic hydrolysis of loaded proteins have been rarely studied. In this study, mesocellular silica foams (MCFs) with large and different pore sizes were pr...

Abstract Macromolecular drugs, such as proteins and peptides, are lately readily available and used in the treatment of diseases including diabetes and cancer, as well as in therapies such as gene therapy, wound dressing, and tissue engineering. However, the bioavailability, the extent and the rate at which these drugs reach the target tissue are highly dependent on the carrier and on the route of administration. Among the multitude of biocompatible polymers used to design vehicles for macromole...
