  1. 1. Presentation byPresentation by SUNILBOREDDYSUNILBOREDDY (M. Pharmacy)(M. Pharmacy) Resealed ErythrocyteResealed Erythrocyte As Drug CarrierAs Drug Carrier
  2. 2. Content Introduction Erythrocytes as drug carrier Basic concept of erythrocytes Advantages & limitation Source & Isolation of Erythrocytes Method of drug Loading Characterization Drug release, Storage Application Conclusion
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION Current Research: Aimed at development of drug delivery system to get max. therapeutic effect. Idea of drug carrier system:to get maximum therapeutic effects, Elimination of undesirable side effects and Increase patient compliance. Magic Bullet Concept: Paul Ehrlich proposed. Decrease toxic effect and increase therapeutic effect to the targeted cell.
  4. 4. Resealed Erythrocytes Properties as carrier :- Appropriate size, shape to permit passage through the capillaries. Biocompatible & minimum toxic side effects Minimum leakage before target site is achieved Should be able to carry broad spectrum of drugs Appreciable stability during storage period Should have sufficient space & should carry adequate amounts of drugs
  5. 5. Erythrocytes Erythro= red Cytes = cell Biconcave discs, anucleate. Filled with hemoglobin (Hb), a protein that functions in gas transport Contain the plasma membrane protein spectrin and other proteins that: Give erythrocytes their flexibility Allow them to change shape as necessary
  6. 6. Erythrocytes CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS: Water(63%) Lipid(0.5%) Glucose(0.8%) Minerals(0.7%) Non-hemoglobin protiens(0.9%) Methehemoglobin(0.5%) and Hemoglobin (33.67%)
  7. 7. Erythrocytes Healthy adult male= 4.5 millions/µml Healthy adult female= 4.8 millions/µml Matured RBCs have no nucleus Ribosome & Mitochondria . Therefore all space is available for drug carrier. Reticulocytes- immature erythrocytes
  8. 8. Advantages of erythrocyte as carrier:- Biodegradable Isolation is easy Non immunogenic large volume of drug can be encapsulated in small volume of erythrocytes Prolong systemic activity of drug Protection from premature degration Prodrug concept (Bioreactor) ReduceAdverse Effect Peptide & Enzyme Delivery Disadvantages :- Possibility of Leakage of cells & dose dumping Molecule Alter Physiology Of cell
  9. 9. Source, fractionation & isolation of erythrocytes Source:- mice, cattle, pig, dog, sheep, goat, monkey, chicken, rat, rabbit & human Whole blood can be collected by venipuncture or from orbital sinus in heparinized tube Red blood cells can be harvested & centrifuged(2500rpm/5min at 40 c . Different centrifugal force & different buffer composition(PBS,pH7.4) for different species is used Fresh blood is used for loading of drugs.
