Okra Gum Based Multiple Units for Oral Drug Delivery
OG is obtained from the fruits of okra plant (Hibiscus esculentus, family: Malvaceae) (Hirose et al. in Carbohydr Polym 339:9–19, 2004). This plant is cultivated in the tropical/subtropical areas around the world. OG contains L-galacturonic acid, D-galactose as well as L-rhamnose, (Mishra et al. in Carbohydr Polym 72:608–615, 2008; Sinha et al. in Int J Biol Macromol 79, 555–563, 2015a).
