The importance of the realization of oral Insulin to mankind breaches all age groups, nationalities, homes, hospitals, pharmacies and clinics spanning the globe and echo’s throughout the thoughts of some of the most brilliant scientific minds. In fact, it’s difficult to imagine a single disciplined biochemist who has not on occasion dreamed of oral insulin. Oral Insulin is, in essence, the “Holy Grail” to the drug delivery scholar.
The pharmaceutical industry has literally spent billions of dollars in their quest for the seemingly ever elusive vehicle capable of transporting insulin safely through the gastrointestinal tract. And a tally of university funds dedicated, historically, to their own oral insulin endeavors would certainly stretch just as far. This one single feat, the provision of oral insulin, would impact our lives forever and revolutionize drug delivery as we know it, a task long overdue. Furthermore, the molecular after-shocks of a drug delivery vehicle for insulin would be felt globally impacting intramuscular (IM) and intravenous (IV) therapeutics as one once only IM/IV therapeutic peptide after another were fitted to its mechanism of transport.
To date, the difficulty with Insulin’s oral administration can be attributed to the necessity of the development of a transport system capable not only of transporting insulin through the harsh environment of the gastrointestinal tract but basolaterally as well within intestinal enterocytes. These are critical perquisites inhibited within the narrow scope of traditional drug delivery philosophy and have rather been realized within the understanding and wisdom of natural biological transport mechanisms and through the depths of imagination.
In the present study, we demonstrate the oral administration of Insulin in rodents at serum levels of significant clinical relevance, reproducibly, with an absolute bioavailability challenging to the IM administration of insulin (continued)...
