Abstract: Present study describes the development of a new formulation of levonorgestrel and ethinylestradiol based on double emulsion-solvent evaporation technique using poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) as biodegradable polymer. The effect of polymer concentration on microspheres and entrapment of drug into microspheres were studied. PCL was selected because of its hydrophobicity and advantages over other biodegradable polymers. Characterization of biodegradable polymer used for controlled drug delivery is essential to…
