In the present study a satisfactory attempt was made to develop microparticulate drug delivery system of zidovudine with improved bioavailability, efficient targeting and dose reduction. From the experimental results demonstrated that Chitosan polymer is a suitable macromolecule for the preparation of microspheres of Zidovudine. Particle size analysis revealed that the microspheres were in the range (172 to 192┬Ám) and all the formulations showed ideal surface methodology. Present study shows that the targeting efficiency of drug loaded microspheres over free drug was higher which may provide increased therapeutic efficacy.
