Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) have been reported to be an alternative system to emulsions, liposomes, microparticles and their polymeric counterparts for various application routes since the early 1990s due to their advantages. Various research groups have also increasingly focused on improving their stability in body fluids after administration by(More)
The aim of this study was the comparison of three different formulations (gel, o/w emulsion, oleagenous cream) and two penetration enhancers (oleic acid and menthol) as vehicle systems for celecoxib in respect of release and penetration through excised human skin in vitro. The influence of the vehicle on the release rate was studied in vitro using a(More)
The aim of this study was to improve the chemical stability of ascorbyl palmitate (AP) in a colloidal lipid carrier for its topical use. For this purpose, AP-loaded solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN), nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) and for comparison, a nanoemulsion (NE) were prepared employing the high pressure homogenization technique and stored at room(More)
The choice of surfactant or surfactant mixtures at suitable concentrations contributes to the stability of solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN). In this study, it was found that 1.5% TegoCare 450 was the most effective stabilizer for the Witepsol E85 SLN dispersion compared to Tween 80, Tyloxapol and Pluronic F68 according to the data obtained from differential(More)
The aim of this study was to prepare solid lipid microspheres (SLM) of octyl methoxy cinnamate (2-ethylhexyl-p-methoxy cinnamate; OMC) to achieve controlled release, decrease penetration of this UV absorber from skin and improve its photostability. The influence of the carrier on the rate of release was studied in vitro with a cellulose acetate membrane and(More)
Solid lipid ketoprofen micropellets (SLKM) at different drug/beeswax ratios [(1:1) and (1:2)] were prepared by emulsion congealing technique and then compressed into tablets. Ketoprofen in solid state was incorporated into the melted beeswax at 90 degrees C and the mixture was emulsified in the hot aqueous Tween 80 solution by stirring at a constant rate.(More)
Opipramol 2-HCl (OP) is used for therapy of general somatoform and anxiety disorders. Conventional tablets in the market contain 50 mg OP to be used once or up to three times a day in effective treatment of depression in mild. In case of serious depressive disorders, OP may be administired up to 300 mg a day. Decrease in frequency of high dose(More)
This article evaluates the effect of various vehicles (O/W, W/O and two W/O/W emulsions and a hydrogel) on meloxicam release. One of W/O/W emulsions was named W/O/W-C containing Carbopol 934 as a gelling agent in its outer aqueous phase. Release of drug through cellulose acetate membrane was studied by using Franz-type diffusion cells. Hydrogel formulation(More)
The aim of this study was to use two of Vitamin C derivatives, lipophilic ascorbyl palmitate and hydrophilic calcium ascorbate to determine their skin-hydrating effects for the first time. For this purpose, anhydrous cream, gel and w/o emulsion were prepared and applied to the volunteers' inner forearms. A commercial topical preparation containing a known(More)
The purpose of the present work was to develop a mucoadhesive thermoreversible nasal gel with a tailored gelling temperature to provide the prolonged contact between mometasone furoate and the nasal mucosa and in order to prevent drainage of the formulation. For this purpose, in situ gel containing a thermogelling polymer poloxamer 407 (Pluronic® F-127) and(More)
