Current experimental investigation is dedicated to formulated alginate floating microbeads of Isoniazid as a model drug by ion cross-linking method or ion gelation technique using calcium chloride as cross-linking agent. Drug effectiveness might be influenced by blood plasma protein binding. The less bound drug is more viable it can cross cell membrane and diffuse. Protein binding can impact the drug’s biological half-life in the body. Isoniazid was first generation antibiotic which are used for the resistance is an obstacle to the treatment of tuberculosis disease and latent tuberculosis infection. The permeability of Isoniazid study using different membrane (Egg membrane and cellophane membrane). The IN VITRO drug release studies showed the optimized formulation of drug release 91 % in cellophane membrane and 88 % in egg membrane at 60 mins. The percentage buoyancy and swelling index of microbeads F1-F4 respectively 53-72% and 56-76%. The drug entrapment efficiency of the microbeads prepared from sodium alginate alone were found to be in the range of 52-71%.Experimental report revealed that Isoniazid loaded microbeads may act as ideal nano formulation with elaborated studies.
