Abstract: The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of extracts ofEphedra gerardianaloaded onto gelatin particles on human lung epithelial cells. Particles were synthesized using oil-water emulsification technique and were further stabilized by glutaraldehyde. Particle size was evaluated using SEM and zeta potential analyzer and was found to be in the range of 600 nm–1.32 μm. Drug release profile showed controlled and constant release of extract over the period of 5 days. In vitro biocompatibility of gelatin…
