Abstract

Author(s): Malay Kumar Samanta, T Udaykumar, B Suresh

Microspheres Of Ferrous Sulphate were prepared by congealable disperse-phase encapsulation technique with Agar, Agar and Hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose mixture, and Ethylcellulose. Suspension of Agar and Hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose mixture showed a better sustained release than Agar and Ethylcellulose. Sustained release iron preparations may not cause gastric irritation and other adverse effects and thereby are expected to possess a better therapeutic efficacy especially during long administration periods.
