Research project: Design of glucose sensitive polymeric matrices for delivery of antidiabetic drugs


Diabetes mellitus is the most common endocrine disorder ofcarbohydrate metabolism. Despite there is no cure for diabetesmellitus, tight glycemic control is a contentious issue with anincreased incidence of hyperglycemia and possible increase inmorbidity and mortality. The development of non-invasive glucosebiosensors has accompanied the evolution of monitoring andtreatment of diabetes mellitus, substantially improved glycemiccontrol and preventing the rise and progression of diabetesrelated complications. Glucose biosensors could simultaneouslymeasure glucose and release the required dose of antidiabeticdrug would enhance glucose regulation and better managementof diabetes by providing a reducing medication variability andoptimizing hypoglycemic protection. Microneedles "MNs" systemscould reach the dermis without reaching the pain points, holdgreat promise for continuous and real-time monitoring of diabetes.Simply, designing of polymeric biodegradable microneedles usingCAD design, followed by 3D printing of the designed structure.Loading the desired drug on the tip of the fabricated MNAs by aspin-casting method. Then, the prepared MNs will be subjected todifferent characterization techniques.
