ABSTRACT:
The main objective of this present research is to achieve oral controlled release of Glimepiride and to enhance the gastrointestinal resident time, for this purpose mucoadhesive microcapsules were formulated by employing both ionic gelation method and emulsification gelation method by using sodium alginate and HPMC as coating polymers. Formulated microcapsules were properly evaluated and comparision between two methods were focused. In this present research influence of method on rate of drug release and concentration of polymer coat on rate of drug release from the Glimepiride microcapsules were studies. The rate of drug release was found to be decreased by increasing the concentration of the coat polymer. The rate of drug release was found to be less for microcapsules formulated by Emulsification Gelation Method than compared to microcapsules formulated by Ionic Gelation Method.
