    The present study was aimed at developing a sustained release formulation of Isoniazid (INH) nanoparticles using the biodegradable polymers, poly-∑-caprolactone (PCL) as carrier. The PCL nanoparticles (NP) of hydrophilic dug isoniazid (INH), a first line antitubercular drug are developed and the entrapment efficiency of drug in the NPs has been improved. The PCL NPs were prepared by an oil-in-water emulsion solvent evaporation with ultrasonication technique. 32 factorial designs employed to optimized formula. Two independent variables like ultrasonication time and PCL Concentration were selected for factorial design for its significant effect on particle size, entrapment efficiency of NPs. The prepared PCL NPs were characterized by SEM analysis, entrapment efficiency, zeta potential, FTIR, DSC, in-vitro diffusion studies. These results indicate that INH loaded PCL nanoparticles could be effective in sustaining its release for a prolonged period. The PCL NPs could be alternate method for delivery for INH with prolonged drug release profiles and better therapeutic effect can be achieved for the treatment of tuberculosis. However, further studies are needed to confirm its performance in vivo.
