Bottom Line: Metronidazole (MTZ) has extremely broad spectrum of protozoal and antimicrobial activity and is clinically effective in trichomoniasis, amoebic colitis, and giardiasis.The SEM and FTIR studies confirm good spheres and smooth surface as well as interaction between drug and polymers.Though release kinetic is uncertain, the best fit was obtained with the Korsmeyer kinetic model with release exponent (n) lying between 0.45 and 0.89.

ABSTRACT
Metronidazole (MTZ) has extremely broad spectrum of protozoal and antimicrobial activity and is clinically effective in trichomoniasis, amoebic colitis, and giardiasis. This study was performed to formulate and evaluate the MTZ loaded microspheres by coacervation phase separation and surface deposition and coalescence methods using different polymers like Gelatin, Carbopol 934P, Polylactic Acid (PLA), Eudragit RS30D, and Eudragit RL30D to acquire sustained release of drug. In vitro dissolution studies were carried out in phosphate buffer (pH 7.4) for 8 hours according to USP paddle method. The maximum and minimum release of MTZ from microspheres observed were 84.81% and 76.6% for coacervation and 95.07% and 80.07% for surface deposition method, respectively, after 8 hours. Release kinetics was studied in different mathematical release models. The SEM and FTIR studies confirm good spheres and smooth surface as well as interaction between drug and polymers. Though release kinetic is uncertain, the best fit was obtained with the Korsmeyer kinetic model with release exponent (n) lying between 0.45 and 0.89. In vitro studies showed that MTZ microspheres with different polymers might be a good candidate as sustained drug delivery system to treat bacterial infections.

fig3: Comparative percent release study of actual drug loading and drug entrapment efficiency of different formulations.

Mentions: Drug loading and the drug entrapment efficiency (DEE) of the prepared microspheres were carried out and the graphical presentation is given in Figure 3. The actual drug loaded and the drug entrapment efficiency were found to be in the range of 14.48% to 16.48% and 72.04% to 82.04%, respectively.
