Paclitaxel (Taxol) is one of the best antineoplastic drugs found from nature in the past decades. Like many other anticancer drugs, there are difficulties in its clinical governance due to its poor solubility. Therefore an agitator called Cremophor EL has to be supplemented, but the consequence is serious side-effects. Conversely, nanoparticles of biodegradable polymers can afford an ultimate resolution to the adjuvant problem and become conscious to the controlled and targeted delivery of the drug with enhanced efficiency with fewer side-effects. The present research put forward a novel formulation for fabrication of Paclitaxel loaded PLGA nanoparticles by emulsification solvent evaporation method. Five nanoparticle formulations were prepared by way of including different concentrations of of PLGA and the co-polymer PVA. As step one of characterization, FTIR spectra had been taken on to investigate the viable drug-excipient interactions. PLGA, placebo and drug loaded nanoparticles (optimized) had been recorded. DSC evaluation turned into accomplished to look at the thermal conduct of drug within the presence of polymer and other excipients of the formulation. The mean particle size analysis was done through laser diffraction method. Particle charges (zeta-potential) of organized nano suspensions have been measured. From the characterization analysis it is proved that the compatibility of paclitaxel with the chosen polymers is extra and the NP5 method shows extra macroscopic balance as compared with remaining formulations.
