DBT - PROJECT PROPOSAL

A Project proposal is submitted to the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) in the month of March’18

Project title: “Vitamin D Nanoliposomes constituted by rHDL – Optimising Choice of Administration Route and Efficacy among Spray Bandage, Topical Cream and Oral Supplement”

Aim of the Project

The aim of this study is to develop a Vitamin D Nonoliposome constituted by rHDL (reconstituted High Density Lipoproteins) and to comparatively optimiseits efficacy of equivalent doses in Spray Bandage of Cholecalciferol (Aerosol), oral cholecalciferol (gel capsules) and Topical Cholecalciferol (Skin cream) in correcting Vitamin D deficiency by carrying out both in vitro (Cell Lines & Semi permeable membrane) and in vivo studies (Animal studies and clinical trials).

Duration : 3 Years

Proposed Budget: Eighty Five Lakhs Fifty Five Thousand Rupees
