|Abstract||In the present investigation a simple and effective strategy was employed for the development of pH-sensitive self-assembling microparticles based on poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA)-bis(2-aminopropyl)poly(ethylene glycol) (APEG), and their efficiency in oral protein delivery was evaluated. An inter-ionic gelation process was employed for the preparation of microparticles and particles were obtained spontaneously during the process without using any surfactants or stabilizers. Particle size analysis was carried out to measure average particle size and surface morphology was evaluated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Bovine serum albumin (BSA) was incorporated onto these microparticles to evaluate the loading and release properties of the matrix. PMAA-APEG microparticles displayed pH responsive release profile, as less than 10% of encapsulated BSA was released at pH 1.2 in 2 h and more than 80% of loaded protein was released within 3 h at pH 7.4. Carboxymethyl beta-cyclodextrin (CM beta CD)-insulin non-covalent inclusion complex was prepared to enhance the stability of insulin formulations and complex formation was analyzed by fluorescence spectroscopic studies. CM beta CD-complexed insulin was encapsulated into PMAA-APEG microparticles by a diffusion filling method and biological activity of entrapped insulin was evaluated using an ELISA. Finally mucoadhesive studies of PMAA-APEG microparticles were carried out on freshly excised rat intestinal mucosa at neutral pH to establish the adhesive nature of the material.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
