The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of two factors (ratio of Eudragit S100 and Eudragit L100 and the coating level) on indomethacin release from pellets in order to optimize coating formulations for colonic delivery. Coating formulations were designed based on the full factorial design. Two independent variables were the ratio of Eudragit(More)
The aim of this study was to compare aqueous dispersion and organic solution of Eudragit RS in preparation of sustained release theophylline microparticles using spray drying technique. Spray dried samples (SD) with drug:polymer (D:P) ratios of 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 were prepared using aqueous dispersion (SDaq) or organic solutions of Eudragit RS in ethanol (SDor).(More)
Osteoporosis is a multi factorial disease with dimension of genetic and nutritional considerations. The aim of this study was to present data from the association of plasma zinc, copper and toxic elements of lead and cadmium levels with bone mineral density in Iranian women. 135 women gave their information and enrolled. Fasting plasma was used for(More)
Ibuprofen was crystallized from methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, and hexane at similar conditions. Marked differences in crystal habit of the samples obtained from these solvents were observed. The samples crystallized from methanol and ethanol had a polyhedral crystal habit, while those from hexane were needlelike. Those from isopropanol were elongated(More)
The aim of this study was to assess some permeability and swelling characteristics of free films prepared by combination of inulin as a bacterially degradable system and time- or pH-dependent polymers as a coating formulation for colonic drug delivery. Different free films were prepared by casting and solvent evaporation method. Formulations containing(More)
It was shown that the aqueous solubility of acetaminophen in the presence of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) increased. The solubility at 25 degrees C increased from 14.3 m mL(-1) in the absence of PVP, to 19.7 mg m(-1) in the presence of 4% w/v PVP, and to 26.7mg mL(-1) in the presence of 8% w/v PVP. Dialysis studies indicated that there is a potential of(More)
One challenge in tableting of sustained-release multiparticulates is maintaining the desired drug release after compaction. The aim of this study was to design sustained-release ibuprofen tablets which upon oral ingestion rapidly disintegrate into sustained-release pellets in which the integrity of the pellet core and/or coat is preserved. First free films(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the combination of pH-dependent and time-dependent polymers as a single coating for design of colon delivery system of indomethacin pellets. Eudragit S100 and Eudragit L100 were used as pH-dependent polymers and Eudragit RS was used as a time-dependent polymer. A statistical full factorial design was used in order(More)
INTRODUCTION The copolymer of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and polyesters has many interesting properties, such as amphiphilicity, biocompatibility, biodegradability, and self-assembly in an aqueous environment. Diblock copolymers of PEG-polyester can form different structures such as micelles, polymersome, capsules or micro-container in an aqueous environment(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the application of Eudragit RL PO and RS PO and their combination for production of ibuprofen pellets by extrusion-spheronization. The pellets were prepared based on full factorial design. Independent variables were % ibuprofen (40, 60, 80), the ratio of Eudragit RS to Eudragit RL (1:0, 1:1, 0:1) and % PVP (1, 3, 5). The(More)
