Abstract

Objective: The objective of this research work is to develop and evaluate mucoadhesive microspheres of an anti-migraine drug for sustained release. Materials and Methods:  Mucoadhesive microspheres were prepared by emulsification method using Sodium alginate (SA), polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) and Chitosan in the various drug-polymer ratios of 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3. Nine  formulations were formulated and  evaluated for  possible drug polymer interactions, percentage yield, micromeritic properties, particle size, drug content, drug entrapment efficiency, drug loading, swelling index, In-vitro wash off test, in vitro  drug release, surface morphology and release kinetics. Results: The results showed that no significant drug polymer interaction in FTIR studies. Among all the formulations SF3 containing sodium alginate showed 77.18% drug release in 6hrs. Conclusion: Amongst the developed mucoadhesive microspheres, SF3 formulation containing sodium alginate exhibited slow and sustained release in a controlled manner and it is a promising formulation for sustained release of Sumatriptan succinate.


Keywords: Mucoadhesive microspheres, Sodium alginate, polyvinyl pyrrolidone, Chitosan, sustained release.
