Novel mucoadhesive chitosan microspheres were developed to explore the possibilities of non invasive delivery of insulin. The mucoadhesive chitosan microspheres were prepared by emulsification method. Formulations were characterized for various physiochemical attributes, shape, surface morphology, size and size distribution, drug payload, swelling ability and mucoadhesion. Mucoadhesive chitosan microspheres bearing insulin were evaluated for in vitro drug release and in vitro drug permeation through mucosal membrane. In vivo performance was studied on blood plasma level of glucose. Glutaraldehyde cross-linked microspheres showed better reduction of blood glucose level than citric acid cross-linked microspheres. The in vivo performance of mucoadhesive microspheres showed prolonged and controlled release of drug as compared with the conventional dosage form.
