The purpose of the present study was to prepare intranasal delivery system of sildenafil citrate and estimate its relative bioavailability after nasal administration in rabbits to attain rapid onset of action with good efficacy at lower doses. Sildenafil citrate saturated solubility was determined in different solvents, cosolvents, and microemulsion(More)
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(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop and characterize a successful colloidal soft nano-carrier viz. microemulsion system, for the transdermal delivery of an angiotensin II receptor blocker: olmesartan medoxomil. Different microemulsion formulations were prepared. The microemulsions were characterized visually, with the polarizing microscope, and by(More)
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(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this work was to investigate the feasibility of using nanosized microemulsion for transdermal delivery of tolterodine tartrate. METHODS The effect of three microemulsions formed by Labrasol: Plurol (3:1), isopropyl myristate and water on the permeation of tolterodine through miniature pig skin was studied in vitro using Franz diffusion(More)
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(More)
The aim of this study was to formulate extended release compression coated core tablets of fenoterol hydrobromide, a selective beta(2) adrenergic receptor agonist, in an attempt to prevent nocturnal asthma. Two hydrophilic polymers viz Kollidon SR, Polyox WSR 303 and a hydrophobic one (Precirol ATO5) were employed. Compression coated tablets were formulated(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the nanocarrier surface charge on brain delivery of a model hydrophilic drug via the nasal route. Anionic and cationic nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) were prepared and optimized for their particle size and zeta potential. The optimum particles were incorporated in poloxamer in situ gels and(More)
BACKGROUND Olanzapine is a psychotropic agent that belongs to the thienobenzodiazepine class. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the bioequivalence of 2 commercial 10-mg tablet formulations of olanzapine by statistical analysis of the pharmacokinetic parameters C(max), AUC from 0 to 72 hours after dosing (AUC(0-72)), and AUC(0-infinity) as(More)
AIM To develop Finasteride-loaded self micro-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SMEDDS) for the treatment of hormonal associated problems. MATERIALS & METHODS Ternary phase diagrams were constructed to obtain self-emulsification regions. Multivariate statistical methods viz. Principal component analysis and agglomerative hierarchy clustering analysis were(More)
