  2. 2. Highlights Bioglass for controlled drug release (antibiotics) Surface functionalization and conformational changes of proteins adsorbed on Bioglass Insulin microencapsulation and release from zinc/silica microparticles
  3. 3. A real story…turns to history Bioglass®45S5, the first formulation composed of SiO2, Na2O, CaOand P2O5, developed by Professor Larry Hench at the University of Florida in the late 1960s. The 45S5 name signifies glass with 45 wt.% of SiO2and 5:1 ratio of CaOto P2O5. Lower Ca/P ratios do not bond to bone. ThefirstsuccessfulsurgicaluseofBioglass45S5wasinreplacementofossiclesinmiddleear,astreatmentofconductivehearingloss.
  4. 4. Different Bioglassescomposition reported in literature
  5. 5. Bioglassesare divided in two categories: ClassA: •Osteoproductive •Osteoconductive. •Bindwithbothsofttissuesandbone.TheHCAlayerformswithinseveralhours. ClassB: •Osteoconductive(such as ydroxyapatite) •Bonding to soft tissues is not facilitated. The HCA layer takes one to several days to form.

  7. 7. Compositions such as 45S5 Bioglasswith high rates of bioactivity produce rapid regeneration of trabecularbone with an amount, architecture and bio-mechanical quality of bone that matches that originally present in the site. The rapid regeneration of bone is due to a combination of processes called osteostimulationand osteoconduction
  8. 8. Processing bioglassesMelting process T= 1100-1300°CSol-gel route advantages: low processing temperature and controlling textural properties Sol-gel-derived bioactive glasses are more bioactive and degrade more rapidly than melt-derived glasses of similar compositions. This is because sol-gel glasses have a nanometer-scale textural porosity which increases the specific surface area by two orders of magnitude compared to a melt-derived glass .

  24. 24. Tetracycline hydrochloride may act as a chemical spin trap. EPR and UV/VIS spectroscopy have shown that the specimen with a larger surface are is able to incorporate more tetracycline. The maximum TC amount was released after 2 h, and thereafter the release continued slightly for 24 h, followed by a drastic diminution after 48 h. The pores size modification and specific surface area after tetracycline loading seems to be the main factor in tetracycline controlled released process. Similar results were obtained for different pharmaceutical compounds: hydrocortisone, propolis, β-cyclodextrin[ Z.R.

  35. 35.

  36. 36. Insulin microencapsulation and release from zinc/silica microparticles In the presence of zinc ions, insulin dimersassociate into hexamerswith greater stability.
  37. 37. Advantages Microencapsulation is considered one of the best oral drug delivery approaches. Overcome the enzimaticand physical barriers of gastro intestinal tract. Advantages of encapsulation using inorganic silica: highly inert and stable (compared to organic polymers), amorphous silica (in contrast to crystalline silica) is not toxic being recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as safe food additive and excipientfor vitamins. Silica shell with pores typically < 10 nm ZnOhas antiseptic effect Addition of Zn ions proved to preserve the secondary structure of some proteins.
