Abstract

The aim of this work was the formulation and characterization of alginate (ALG)-doxycycline (DOX) hydrogel microparticles (MPs) embedded into Pluronic F127 thermogel for DOX intradermal sustained delivery. ALG-DOX MPs were formed by adding a solution of the drug into a 1.5% polymer solution while stirring. The MPs were cross-linked by dispersion into a 1.2% CaCl2 solution. Free MPs were characterized in terms of size, drug content, and release behavior by HPLC and UV-vis. DOX and hydrogel MPs were embedded into PF127, PF127-HPMC, and PF127-Methocel thermogels. The thermogels were characterized in terms of gelling time, morphology, and release behavior. A target release period of 4-7 days was considered optimal. The hydrogel MPs were about 20 μm in size with 90% of the population
