Abstract: The aims of this work were to determine the stability of DNA-calcium-phosphate coprecipitation (CaPi-DNA) against various conditions during double emulsification microencapsulation and assess the release and physicochemical characteristics of poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microparticles loading CaPi-DNA. CaPi-DNA prepared at pH 6.5 showed a good stability with over 60% CaPi-DNA remained after emulsification, but no more than 40% at pH 8.0. Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA, 1-5%) could make over 80% CaPi-DNA (pH …
