Abstract

In-Vitro Studies On Buccal Strips Of Glibenclamide Using Chitosan

Author(s): R Ilango, S Kavimani, A. R Mullaicharam, B Jayakar

As glibenclamide is metabolised completely in the liver, the principal metabolite being only very weakly active, buccal strip glibenclamide may be very useful for the treatment of diabetes more efficiently. The objective of this work is to investigate the possibility of obtaining a slow release, relatively constant effective levels of glibenclamide from buccal strips using chitosan. Here attempts were made to develop suitable chitosan-based buccal strips and to characterise it using different in vitro methods. Chitosan- based strips of glibenclamide showed suitability over Eudragit-based glibenclamide buccal strips for controlled release behaviour.
