Resumo

Peptide active ingredients show great promise regarding the treatment of various health-endangering diseases. It is reported that L-lysine inhibits the proliferation of several tumour lines in vitro and in vivo. However, proteins and peptide drugs possess certain disadvantages such as in vivo instability and short biological half-life. On the grounds that drug delivery systems can overcome a wide spectrum of bioactive compounds issues, a biopolymeric blend-based micro-particulated system capable of delivering epsilon-polylysine (PLL) was developed. PLL-loaded poly((L)Lactic acid)/poly(D,L-Lactide)-co-poly(ethylene glycol)-based microparticles (PLL-PB-MPs) were prepared and fully characterised exhibiting a narrow size distribution (1.2 +/- 0.12 mu m), high loading efficiency (81%) and improved thermal stability (T-d from 250 degrees C to 291 degrees C). The cytotoxicity and antiproliferative effect of PLL-PB-MPs in pancreatic adenocarcinoma cell lines BxPC3 and MIA PaCa-2 were confirmed. Due to their physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties, PB-MPs constitute a promising carrier to deliver bioactive peptides. (AU)
