Abstract: A newapproach to overcome the degradation of insulin by proteolytic enzymes and its targetingto the blood through the digestive apparatus was developed. The approach is based on theimmobilization of insulin into the polymeric hydrogel which is modified by ovomucoid -glycoprotein, inhibitor of proteolytic enzymes. Oral administration of this system torabbits and rats, (in contrast to the hydrogels modified by proteolytic enzymes inhibitorswithout polysaccharide part), statistically significantly lowered blood glucose level.
