To improve the encapsulation efficiency and oral bioavailability of vincristine sulfate (VCR), novel self-assembled dextran sulphate-PLGA hybrid nanoparticles (DPNs) were successfully developed using self-assembly and nanoprecipitation method. By introducing the negative polymer of dextran sulphate sodium (DS), VCR was highly encapsulated (encapsulation efficiency up to 93.6%) into DPNs by forming electrostatic complex. In vitro release of VCR solution (VCR-Sol) and VCR-loaded DPNs (VCR-DPNs) in pH 7.4 PBS showed that about 80.4% of VCR released from VCR-DPNs after 96h and burst release was effectively reduced, indicating pronounced sustained-release characteristics. In vivo pharmacokinetics in rats after oral administration of VCR-Sol and VCR-DPNs indicated that the apparent bioavailability of VCR-DPNs was increased to approximate 3.3-fold compared to that of VCR-Sol. The cellular uptake experiments were conducted by quantitative assay of VCR cellular accumulation and fluorescence microscopy imaging of fluorescent labeled DPNs in two human breast cancer cells including MCF-7 and P-glycoprotein over-expressing MCF-7/Adr cells. The relative cellular uptake of VCR-DPNs was 12.4-fold higher than that of VCR-Sol in MCF-7/Adr cells implying that P-glycoprotein-mediated drug efflux was diminished by the introduction of DPNs. The new DPNs might provide an effective strategy for oral delivery of VCR with improved encapsulation efficiency and oral bioavailability.
