INTRODUCTION: Nanocomposite microparticles are intelligent carriers utilised for pulmonary drug delivery. These carriers are composed of drug-encapsulated nanoparticles dispersed in microstructures of polysaccharides. Upon administration, the inhaled microparticles can penetrate and be deposited deeply in the lung due to their adjusted aerodynamic particle size. Subsequently, the nanoparticles are released into the lung and are retained there for a prolonged time due to their resistance to immunological opsonisation, engulfment and digestion...
2016: Expert Opinion on Drug Delivery

One of the greatest challenges in in situ forming implant (ISFI) systems by polymer precipitation is the large burst release during the first 1-24 hours after implant injection. The aim of this study was to decrease the burst-release effect of a water-soluble model drug, donepezil HCl, with a molecular weight of 415.96 Da, from in situ forming implants using a novel in situ implant containing lipospheres (ISILs). In situ implant suspensions were prepared by dispersing cetyl alcohol and glyceryl stearate lipospheres in a solution of poly-DL-lactide (PDL) or DL-lactide/glycolide copolymer (PDLG)...

The purpose of this study is to increase the lag time and prevent release of budesonide, a corticosteroid drug used in Crohn's disease for the first 5 h and efficiently deliver it to the colon. Eudragit S100 spray-coated capsules and pulsatile systems using tablet plugs of cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB), HPMC K4M, guar gum, and pectin were prepared. Eudragit S100-coated capsules released 80.62% after 5 h. In pulsatile systems, decreasing the ratio of the polymer significantly increased the rate and extent of drug release...

The purpose of this study was to formulate budesonide (BUD) compression-coated tablets for colonic specific delivery. Pectin and guar gum were used as enzyme-dependent polymers. For comparison purposes, both pH- and time-dependent polymers were also tried. In vitro release studies were carried out at different pH (1.2, 6.8, and 7.4). Therapeutic efficacy of the prepared tablets compared to commercially available capsules and enema were evaluated in trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid-induced rabbit colitis model. In pH-dependent polymers, Eudragit (EUD) S100/EUD L100 (1:1) released 45...

The aim of this study was to enhance the risperidone delivery to the brain through the transnasal route via optimization of cubosomal gel. Cubosomes were prepared using glycerol mono-oleate (GMO), Pluronic F127 (PF127) and Tween 80 (T80). The prepared formulae were characterized by testing their particle size, polydispersity index, zeta potential, entrapment efficiency, in vitro drug release and transmission electron microscopy. Central composite design was planned for the formulae optimization and the selected formula (containing PF127 with concentration 15 mg/g GMO and T80 with concentration of 20mg/L) was re-prepared in presence of gelling polymer (gellan gum or polyox)...

To test if trehalose could be a better cryoprotectant for BCG than the usually used lactose and predict viability of BCG during shelf-life, BCG was suspended into three stabilizer systems containing 15% w/v trehalose, trehalose-gelatin mixture (in ratio, 30:1 w/w) or lactose. Each formula was lyophilized and several quality parameters were tested before and after lyophilization including sterility, safety, viability, morphology and moisture content. Samples of lyophilized formulae were tested for their reconstitution time and others were charged to stability chambers at 5°C for the performance of real time study...

The aim of this study was to increase the in vivo mean residence time of vinpocetine after IV injection utilizing long circulating mixed micellar systems. Mixed micelles were prepared using Pluronics L121, P123 and F127. The systems were characterized by testing their entrapment efficiency, particle size, polydispersity index, zeta potential, transmission electron microscopy and in vitro drug release. Simple lattice mixture design was planned for the optimization using Design-Expert(®) software. The optimized formula was lyophilized, sterilized and imaged by scanning electron microscope...

Lipotomes were designed to enhance lacidipine's oral bioavailability by improving its solubility and enhancing the oral lymphatic uptake. Lipotomes were prepared using cetyl alcohol and Tween(®) 80 using a thin film hydration technique. Cetyl alcohol was chosen for imparting a lipophilic environment that would enforce the lymphatic uptake while Tween(®) 80 would improve drug solubility within the lipotomes. Lipotomes were characterized by analyzing their particle size, solubilization efficiency and in-vitro drug release...

CONTEXT: Diacerein (DCN) has low aqueous solubility (3.197 mg/L) and, consequently, low oral bioavailability (35%-56%). To increase both the solubility and dissolution rate of DCN while maintaining its crystalline nature, high pressure homogenization was used but with only a few homogenization cycles preceded by a simple bottom-up technique. METHODS: The nanosuspensions of DCN were prepared using a combined bottom-up/top-down technique. Different surfactants - polyvinyl alcohol, sodium deoxycholate, and sodium dodecyl sulfate - with different concentrations were used for the stabilization of the nanosuspensions...

Famotidine HCl has low bioavailability (40-45%) due to its narrow absorption window and low solubility in intestinal pH. Lipids were utilized in the formulation of novel gastroretentive dosage forms to increase the availability of famotidine HCl at its absorption site. Novel non-swellable gastroretentive lipid disks (D) and swellable compression coated tablets with a lipid core (T) were prepared. Formulae were characterized by friability testing, in-vitro buoyancy, in-vitro drug release and scanning electron microscopy (SEM)...

CONTEXT: Buspirone HCl has very low oral bioavailability (4%) due to deactivation by extensive first pass effect. It also has very limited transdermal permeation due to its high hydrophilicity. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to increase the transdermal permeation of buspirone HCl utilizing a stable dosage form. METHODS: Transfersomes were prepared using Tween-80 as a flexibility imparting agent to the vesicular walls. Oleic acid and/or ethanol, with different percentages, were utilized as a permeation enhancer...
