Oral delivery is the preferred route to deliver therapeutics via nanoparticles due to ease of administration and patient acceptance. Here, we report on the findings of the absorption pathway of taurocholic acid (TCA)-linked heparin and docetaxel (DTX) conjugate, which we refer to as HDTA. We studied the oral absorption of HDTA using a Caco-2 cell transport system and an animal model. We have also used other absorption enhancers, such as ethylene glycol tetraacetic acid (EGTA), or inhibitors, such as sodium azide, to compare the relative permeability of HDTA conjugates. In vivo comparative studies were conducted using free TCA as a pre-administration and exhibited the maximum absorption site of the organ after oral administration of HDTA conjugates. HDTA was found to be absorbed mainly in the ileum and Caco-2 cell monolayer through passive diffusion and bile acid transporters. High fluorescence intensity of HDTA in mice came from the ileum, and it was eliminated from the body through colon. This novel formulation could be further investigated by clinical trials to find the prospect of oral anti-cancer drug delivery through anti-angiogenic treatment strategies.
