Abstract

This work demonstrates synthetic strategies for the incorporation of a synthesized pyrimidine glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist into alginate-coated ZIF-8. The prepared pyrimidine GLP-1 agonist used for the treatment of diabetes type II, was trapped inside polymer coated ZIF-8. The encapsulation of the GLP-1 agonist was confirmed by UV-visible and FT-IR spectroscopies. Furthermore, the release kinetics of GLP-1 agonist drug from alginate-coated ZIF-8 were investigated in phosphate-buffered saline at 37 C at pH 8 and 1.5. The alginate-coated ZIF-8 exhibited much faster drug release at basic pH than at pH 1.5, indicating the potential of the alginate-coated ZIF-8 system to overcome the fast degradation at acidic pH of the stomach and improve the drug’s activity. This study may open the way for the synthesis of new metal organic frameworks (MOFs) to enhance drug delivery systems.
