Abstract

The present research aimed to improve the effectiveness of TB treatment by a non conventional therapy and using teh respiratory tract as a novel adminictration route for rifampicin. The study dealt with the design of Solid Lipid Microparticles (SLM) to be delivered by a Dry Powder Inhaler (DPI) device and to target the alveolar macrophages. The negligible in vitro drug release indicated the capacity of the matrix to firmly entrap the drug. Rifampicin maintained its biological activity during the preparation steps. Moreover, SLM were suitable to be taken up by murine J774 cells.
