Abstract


Zaltoprofen was formulated as novel enteric microcapsules for improved delivery using the polymer ethyl cellulose as the retardant material. Micro encapsulation of Zaltoprofen was done to achieve a controlled drug release profile suitable for per oral administration. Microcapsules were prepared by and emulsion solvent evaporation method. The prepared microcapsules were evaluated for different quality control parameter like; size analysis, drug content, encapsulation efficiency, and drug release characteristics etc. Results of study revealed that Zaltoprofen release from microcapsules greatly affected by the size of the microcapsules. A precise UV method also developed for the estimation of zaltoprofen in prepared dosage form. Drug followed the BeerLamberts law in the concentration range of 5- 25?g/ml. Slope, intercept, correlation coefficient, detection and quantization limits were also calculated. Results of the analysis were validated statistically and were found to be satisfactory.
