Gliclazide,an effective antidiabetic drug, entrapped within gel microbeads using sodium alginate and systems containing mixtures of sodium alginate and various polymers were obtained by Orifice-Ionic gelation method. encapsulation efficiencies, bead size and drug release profile were evaluated. Increase in encapsulation efficiencies for the.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
