In ocular drug delivery, a major problem is providing an adequate concentration of a therapeutic agent in the precorneal area. Mucoadhesive carriers such as polyacrylic acid in sub-colloidal, nanoparticulate form, have a strong potential for ophthalmic drug delivery. A formulation of brimonidine loaded in polyacrylic acid nanoparticles has been prepared for potential delivery in ophthalmic therapy. The particles were prepared by a reverse microemulsion polymerization technique and their sizes were in the range of 50 nm. In a preliminary biocompatibility test, Caco-2 cells (human primary colonic tumour adenocarcinoma) and human corneal epithelial cells incubated with polyacrylic acid nanoparticles were found to retain their viability over varying times. The loading efficiency of the drug brimonidine in the particles was shown to be between 80–85% and pH dependent. The bioadhesive polyacrylic hydrogel nanoparticles, used in the present study, exhibited superior loading properties for brimonidine, and the formulation was stable for more than 5 weeks. When the drug-loaded nanoparticles were dispersed in a phosphate buffer saline (pH = 7.4), the drug was slowly released over several hours. Two-photon laser scanning microscopic studies of dye-conjugated polyacrylic acid nanoparticles demonstrated the accumulation of the particles on the surface and intercellular spaces of Caco-2 cells.
