The goal of the present work was to study the feasibility of 10-hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT) nanoparticle preparation using supercritical antisolvent (SAS) precipitation. The influences of various experimental factors on the mean particle size (MPS) of HCPT nanoparticles were investigated. The optimum micronization conditions are determined as follows: HCPT(More)
A new separation method, negative pressure cavitation (NPC) extraction followed by HPLC-MS-MS for the determination of paclitaxel and its analogues in the needles of Taxus species is described in this study. Compared with three conventional extraction methods, NPC is a more effective, economical, and facile method for the separation of nature compounds from(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the in vitro and in vivo antitumor efficacy and the dose dependent toxicity of camptothecin nanosuspension (Nano-CPT) comparing with that of topotecan (TPT). A novel supercritical antisolvent (SAS) process-high pressure homogenization technique has been developed to prepare Nano-CPT. The cytotoxicity of Nano-CPT and(More)
The particle sizes of pharmaceutical substances are important for their bioavailability. Bioavailability can be improved by reducing the particle size of the drug. In this study, artemisinin was micronized by the rapid expansion of supercritical solutions (RESS). The particle size of the unprocessed white needle-like artemisinin particles was 30 to 1200 μm.(More)
A new method, namely negative-pressure cavitation extraction (NPCE), followed by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is presented for the extraction and quantification of flavonoids in pigeon pea leaves. This method combines the high efficiency of NPCE and the sensitivity and accuracy of MS/MS. The influential parameters of the NPCE(More)
In this study, folic-dextran-camptothecin (Fa-DEX-CPT) tumor-targeted nanoparticles were produced with a supercritical antisolvent (SAS) technique by using dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) as a solvent and carbon dioxide as an antisolvent. A factorial design was used to reveal the effect of various process parameters on the mean particle size (MPS) and morphology(More)
AIM This work is aimed to study the feasibility of insulin nanoparticles for transdermal drug delivery (TDD) using supercritical antisolvent (SAS) micronization process. METHODS The influences of various experimental factors on the mean particle size (MPS) of insulin nanoparticles were investigated. Moreover, the insulin nanoparticles obtained were(More)
