ABSTRACT:
As a disease skin cancer has obtained different characteristics over the decades. Solar radiation that contains ultraviolet ray is the prime cause of skin cancer. In this present research, the nano-precipitation method was applied for preparing Quercetin loaded Nanoparticle (Qu-Nps) with much enhanced loading properties and improves incorporation of corresponding drugs. At the same time, the Quadratic model that takes help of the Response Surface Method was applied to observe the effects of some specific parameters maintained in the development of nanoparticle. Here, the sonication time was 20 min and delivery system F6 (with Drug: Polymer ratio of 1:45) provided optimum drug entrapment ability which is 70%. The optimized formulation for average size was almost 102.39 ±7.64 nm with zeta potential diameter averaging -28.43mV. Quercetin is a dietary flavonoid possessing multidimensional properties that is used in various other diseases including viral infection, bacterial infection, diabetes mellitus, and cancer. All outcomes support the view that Quercetin loaded nanoparticles (Qu-Nps) has high entrapment and drug loading abilities.
