Modeling of Controlled Drug Delivery from a Chitosan Microparticle Book Review:

Nowadays, advanced controlled drug delivery systems have been attracted the pharmaceutical research studies. As several experiments have to be done for pharmaceutical approaches, mathematical modeling becomes important. Mathematical modeling of drug release provides better understanding of controlled drug delivery system and would help to optimize the system without huge number of expensive experiments. Diffusion is the predominant transport phenomena of the drug delivery systems. Therefore, optimizing the parameters related to diffusional mass transport, such as diffusion coefficient and porosity, would be the essential key to get better controlled drug release profile. One of the challenges of controlled drug delivery systems is the initial burst, which decreases the effective lifetime of drug and would cause toxicity. This challenge has been solved by using a coating layer to control the drug release. Regarding to this issue, promising modeling results have been shown in this study and all the modeling data have been fitted with available experimental set of data. The mathematical modeling results in a partial differential equation. The analytical solution for the simplified equation is provided in this study. However, the boundary condition for the outer layer is complicated and the solution for the real problem would be available by using numerical methods. Finite difference method provided the numerical solution to the real problem and MATLAB software facilitate the process of solving the equation numerically.

Chitosan and Its Derivatives as Promising Drug Delivery Carriers Book Review:

Chitosan, a natural based polymer obtained by alkaline deacetylation of chitin, is non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable. These properties make chitosan a good candidate for the development of conventional and novel drug delivery systems. Recently, there has been a growing interest in the chemical modification of chitosan in order to improve its solubility and widen its applications. Chemical modification of chitosan is useful for the association of bioactive molecules to the polymer and controlling the drug release profile. Chemical modification will introduce desired properties and enlarge the field of the potential applications of chitosan with the choice of various types of side chains. In this monograph, recent studies on the various types of chitosan microspheres are discussed from the viewpoint of drug delivery applications. Moreover, different types of chitosan derivatives developed as controlled drug delivery carriers and their preparation methods are discussed in detail. The modifications discussed here include amphiphilic chitosan derivatives, N-(aminoalkyl) chitosan, carboxymethyl chitosan, thiolated chitosans, phosphorylated chitosan, etc. Special emphasis has been given to the development of chitosan-based polyelectrolyte complexes, graft copolymerized chitosan and chitosan-based stimuli-responsive hydrogels as drug delivery carriers. The reviewed studies lead to the conclusion that chitosan derivatives are promising materials for the controlled delivery of various types of therapeutic agents.

Chitosan Based Thermo pH Double Sensitive Hydrogel for Controlled Drug Delivery Book Review:

Abstract: A series of thermo/pH sensitive N ‐succinyl hydroxybutyl chitosan (NSHBC) hydrogels with different substitution degrees of succinyl are prepared for drug delivery. Rheology analysis shows that the gelation temperature of NSHBC hydrogels is 3.8 °C higher than that of hydroxybutyl chitosan (HBC) hydrogels. A model drug bovine serum albumin (BSA) is successfully loaded and released. NSHBC hydrogels show excellent pH sensitivity drug release behaviors. After incubation for 24 h, 93.7% of BSA is released from NSHBC hydrogels in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) (pH 7.4), which is significantly greater than that of 24.6% at pH 3.0. In contrast, the release rate of BSA from HBC is about 70.0% at pH 3.0 and 7.4. Thus, these novel hydrogels have the prominent merits of high adaptability to soluble drugs and pH sensitivity triggered release, indicating that NSHBC hydrogels have promising applications in oral drug delivery. Abstract : Thermo/pH‐sensitive N ‐succinyl hydroxybutyl chitosan (NSHBC) hydrogels are first prepared and investigated for drug delivery. NSHBC hydrogels exhibit outstanding ability to load the model drug of BSA and trigger release it at simulated intestinal conditions, which can be a promising carrier in oral drug delivery applications.
