Salcaprozate sodium (SNAC), an oral absorption promoter, and has the potential as a delivery agent for oral forms of heparin and insulin. Salcaprozate sodium could increase passive transcellular permeation across small intestinal epithelia based on increased lipophilicity arising from non-covalent macromolecule complexation.

How to use

In Vitro:

SNAC (12.5-400 μg/mL; 24 h) has no toxicity to Caco-2 cells, and the survival percentage is above 90% when SNAC is 200 μg/mL. SNAC (50 and 200 μg/mL) improves the apparent permeability coeffcient (Papp) of RA and SA-B by 2.14-fold and 3.68-fold compared with the Papp of SAs solution.

In Vivo:

SNAC improves the oral absorption of both R1 and SAs and enhances bioavailability in rats. SNAC (2000 mg/kg/d; oral gavage for 13 weeks) related mortality is evident only at the 2000-mg/kg/d level, 20% among males and 50% among females; no clear cause of death is evident. SNAC (100-1000 mg/kg/d; oral gavage for 13 weeks) induces no mortality in the Wistar rat study at doses up to 1000 mg/kg/d.
