Abstract In designing an oral delivery method for insulin, we previously reported that pH-responsive carboxymethylated kappa -carrageenan-based microparticles protected insulin from acid degradation during transport through the gastrointestinal tract. However, the low surface-to-volume ratio of these microparticles and the presence of only one sulfate group in each kappa -carrageenan subunit for insulin stabilization may lead to a suboptimal delivery efficiency. To improve the delivery efficiency, we designed a nanoparticle from chitosan (CS) and carboxymethylated iota -carrageenan (CMCi) that possessed two sulfate groups per subunit based on response surface methodology together with multivariate spline interpolation (RSM MSI ). The resulting optimized nanoparticles had a zeta potential, mean particle size, loading capacity and entrapment efficiency of 52.5 ± 0.5 mV, 613 ± 41 nm, 10.7 ± 0.6%, and 86.9 ± 2.6%, respectively. The release of insulin from the optimized nanoparticles was low (4.91 ± 0.24%) in simulated gastric fluid (SGF) and high (86.64 ± 2.2%) in simulated intestinal fluid (SIF) during a 12-h release study, thereby showing a pH-responsive drug release property. The nanoparticles were stable at 4 °C and − 20 °C for at least 90 days and for up to 7 days at room temperature. The RSM MSI technique successfully expedited the design of the nanoparticles, which could serve as an improved oral insulin drug delivery system.

Improving the safety efficacy ratio of existing drugs is a current challenge to be addressed rather than the development of novel drugs which involve much expense and time. The efficacy of drugs is affected by a number of factors such as their low aqueous solubility, unequal absorption along the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, risk of degradation in the acidic milieu of the stomach, low permeation of the drugs in the upper GI tract, systematic side effects, etc. This review aims to enlighten reader...

Abstract Although significant progress has been achieved, effective oral delivery of protein drugs such as insulin by nanoparticle-based carrier systems still faces certain formidable challenges. Considerable amount of protein drug is released from the nanoparticles (NPs) in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Because of their low permeability through the intestinal mucosa, the released protein would be soon degraded by the large amount of proteases in the GI tract. Herein, we report an oral insuli...

Abstract In this paper, chitosan was reacted with monochloroacetic acid under alkaline conditions to prepare carboxymethyl chitosan. A 23 full-factorial central composite design was applied to evaluate the effect of molar ratio sodium hydroxide (NaOH)/Chitosan (Ch), time and molar ratio monochloroacetic acid (MCA)/Chitosan (Ch) on the reaction yield and on the characteristics of carboxymethyl chitosan such as average degree of substitution ( D S ¯ ) and solubility. An optimization strategy based...

Abstract In hydrogels of cross-linked polysaccharides, the total amount of cross-linker and the degree of cross-linking influence the properties of the hydrogel. The substitution position of the cross-linker on the polysaccharide is another parameter that can influence hydrogel properties; hence methods for detailed structural analysis of the substitution pattern are required. NMR and LC–MS methods were developed to determine the positions and amounts of substitution of 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl...

Background: Salvianolic acid B (SalB) represents the most abundant and bio-active phenolic constituent among the water-soluble compounds of Salvia miltiorrhiza. But the therapeutic potential of SalB has been significantly restricted by its poor absorption. Methods: In this study, chitosans (CS) and CS nanoparticles (NPs) with different molecular weights (MWs), which have influence on the absorption of SalB, was also investigated. Results: As a preliminary study, water-soluble CS with various MWs...

Diabetes mellitus is an endocrine disease in which the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin or the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin therapy has been the best choice for the clinical management of diabetes mellitus. The current insulin therapy is via subcutaneous injection, which often fails to mimic the glucose homeostasis that occurs in normal individuals. This provokes numerous attempts to develop a safe and effective noninvasive route for insulin delivery. ...

Abstract Diabetes is a metabolic disease and is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in epidemic proportions. A type I diabetic patient is dependent on daily injections of insulin, for survival and also to maintain a normal life, which is uncomfortable, painful and also has deleterious effects. Extensive efforts are being made worldwide for developing noninvasive drug delivery systems, especially via oral route. Oral route is the most widely accepted means of administration. However it is no...

Novel chitosan-carrageenan nanoparticles were produced through the process of ionotropic gelation for the encapsulation and controlled release of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHu-EPO). The effects of chitosan concentration, chitosan to carrageenan mass ratio and solution pH on the nanoparticle diameter, polydispersity and surface charge were explored through both screening and response surface modeling (RSM) methods. The chitosan-carrageenan nanoparticles created had particle diameters betw...

The synthesis of new polymeric materials from the monomers is an arduous task, which does not always achieve the desired success. A very promising alternative that grows each year is the chemical modification of existing polymers. In this case, the polymer is one of the reagents of well-known properties and, through conventional chemical reactions, new functional groups can be inserted into the polymer chain, leading to a wide diversity of properties and applications for the new materials obtain...

Abstract We use small angle neutron scattering (SANS) to characterize the internal morphology of nanoparticles (NPs) formed by the complexation between chondroitin sulfate (CS) and bovine serum albumin (BSA) and subsequent stabilization by thermal treatment. We demonstrate that SANS can quantify the internal rearrangements and protein morphology alterations upon thermal treatment and solution conditions variations. A three-level Guinier/power-law hierarchical model identifies BSA globules, inter...

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...
Abstract We combine electrostatic polysaccharide/protein complexation with subsequent thermal denaturation of proteins to produce chondroitin sulfate/bovine serum albumin nanoparticles that do not lose their integrity at neutral and basic pH. Light scattering at a wide angular range shows that nanoparticle size (radius of gyration and hydrodynamic radius) and molar mass may be tuned by the CS/BSA mass ratio while the irreversible protein-protein contacts upon temperature treatment endow the comp...
