|Abstract||An oral insulin delivery system based on methyl-beta-cyclodextrin (MCD) complexed insulin encapsulated polymethacrylic acid (PMAA) hydrogel microparticles was evaluated in this investigation. Poly(methacrylic acid)-chitosan-polyethylene glycol (PCP) microparticles were prepared by ionic gelation method. The insulin-MCD (IC) complex prepared was characterized by fluorescence spectroscopic and isothermal titration micro-calorimeteric (ITC) methods. MCD complexed insulin was encapsulated onto PCP microparticles by diffusion filling method. Loading and release properties of the complexed insulin from microparticles were evaluated under in vitro conditions. The effect of MCD complexation on the permeability of insulin was studied using Caco 2 cell monolayers and excised intestinal tissue with an Ussing chamber setup. In vivo experiments were carried on streptozotocin induced diabetic rats to evaluate the efficacy of MCD complexed insulin encapsulated PCP microparticles to deliver insulin by the oral route.IC complex formation was established by fluorescence and ITC investigations. Insulin loading and release properties from the hydrogel matrix was rather unaffected by the MCD complexation. However MCD complexation was effective in enhancing insulin transport across Caco 2 cell monolayers, when applied in combination with the PMAA hydrogel system. Both insulin and MCD complexed insulin encapsulated PCP microparticles were effective in reducing blood glucose level in diabetic animal models. Cyclodextrin complexed insulin encapsulated hydrogel microparticles appear to be an interesting candidate for oral delivery of insulin. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|

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.
