|Abstract||In this work a novel chitosan derivative, lauryl succinyl chitosan (LSC) was developed for the purpose of evaluating its applications towards oral peptide delivery system. Nano/microparticles were developed from this derivative by sodium tripolyphosphate (TPP) cross linking. Human insulin was used as the model protein drug and the release kinetics was studied at gastrointestinal pH. The presence of succinyl carboxyl groups had inhibitory effect on the release kinetics of insulin at pH 1.2 minimizing up to about 8.5 +/- 0.45% in two hours. Results showed that the presence of hydrophobic moieties controlled the release of the loaded insulin from the particles at intestinal pH. The particles were negatively charged with size ranging from 315 nm to 1.090 mu m. The rnucoadhesive capacity was established ex vivo using the jejunum of rat intestine. Confocal microscopy Studies proved the tight junction permeability in Caco 2 cells and in vivo uptake of the FITC-insulin from loaded nanciparticles by the rat intestinal epithelium. The results demonstrated that the modified chitosan with both hydrophilic (succinyl) and hydrophobic (lauryl) moieties had improved the release characteristics, mucoadhesivity as well as the permeability of the insulin compared to the native chitosan particles. The LSC2 particles were capable of reducing blood glucose levels in diabetic rats for the duration of about 6 h. This indicated that this novel derivative Could be a promising candidate for Oral peptide delivery. (c) 2009 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 9 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.
