Abstract: Abstract: Double-layered polymeric carrier was designed for release control of hydrophilic drug in oral administration. Biopolymeric chitosan and alginate were examined as polar absorbents, poly(D,L-lactide) as a hydrophobic shell, and theophylline and diclofenac sodium as loading drugs. The fabrication of the carriers was prepared in the form of double-layered microsphere for delayed and successively extended release, which consisted of outer shell of poly(D,L-lactide) and inner core of alginate or chitosan …
