Abstract

Bovine serum albumin nanospheres carrying cyclodextrin complexes for the delivery of progesterone were produced. Inclusion complexes composed of progesterone and hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin or dimethyl-beta-cyclodextrin were prepared by spray-drying or freeze-drying methods. Prog alone and its inclusion complexes were incorporated into bovine serum albumin nanospheres using a coacervation method and cross-linking with heating. The nanosphere suspensions were essicated by spray-drying or freeze-drying. The inclusion complexes and the nanospheres were characterized by Fourier Transform-Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Phase-solubility diagrams and stability constants were determined in distilled water at different temperatures (10, 25, and 37 degrees C). Size of nanospheres, their drug loading capacity and swelling ability were evaluated, as well as the in vitro controlled release profiles at pH 5.5 and 7.4.
