Insulin microcrystals were encapsulated (microcrystal/PLGA) within poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA 50:50) by the multiple emulsification solvent evaporation technique and compared with insulin solution microspheres (solution/PLGA) in terms of their morphology, size distribution, drug content, encapsulation efficiency, and stability of insulin during release.
