Solid lipid nanoparticles for targeted delivery of triclosan into skin for infection prevention.

J Microencapsul 2019 Jan 30:1-10. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

a Department of Pharmacy, School of Applied Sciences , University of Huddersfield , Huddersfield , UK.

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are a concern for health service providers, exacerbated by poor delivery of antimicrobials to target sites within the skin. The dermal route is attractive for local and systemic delivery of drugs, however; permeation, penetration, and access to deeper skin layers are restricted due to the barrier function of the stratum corneum (SC). Solid lipid nanoparticles present several benefits for topical delivery for therapeutic applications, especially via the follicular route. Read More

This study is about the use of β-glycerophosphate (βGP) to modulate the production of chitosan microparticles through a technology of jet break-up. βGP has been described as capable of producing chitosan gels without additional complexing agents via a thermal transition (inverse gelation). A preliminary assessment on the effect of temperature on the viscosity and gelation of chitosan/βGP precursors demonstrated that the crosslinking process was too slow to afford microparticle production via jet break-up.

Purpose: To optimise the Eudragit/Surelease-coated pH-sensitive pellets for controlled and target drug delivery to the colon tissue and to avoid frequent high dosing and associated side effects which restrict its use in the colorectal-cancer therapy.

Methods: The pellets were prepared using extrusion-spheronisation technique. Box-Behnken and 3 full factorial designs were applied to optimise the process parameters [extruder sieve size, spheroniser-speed, and spheroniser-time] and the coating levels [%w/v of Eudragit S100/Eudragit-L100 and Surelease], respectively, to achieve the smooth optimised size pellets with sustained drug delivery without prior drug release in upper gastrointestinal tract (GIT).
