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 …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
