This study deals with the generation and characterization of various solid-state forms of celecoxib, a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor. The drug was subjected to polymorphic screen using different solvents to explore the possibility of existence of different solid forms. N,N-Dimethyl acetamide (DMA) and N,N-dimethyl formamide (DMF) yielded(More)
The objective of the present study was to generate and characterize the glassy state of Irbesartan (IBS), with a view to exploit the solubility advantage from disordered high energy system. The major reason for limited solubility benefit from amorphous systems is their devitrification, on exposure to primarily aqueous dissolution medium. IBS is a lipophilic(More)
Glassy pharmaceuticals, characterized by excess thermodynamic properties, are theoretically more soluble than their crystalline counterparts. The practical solubility advantage of the amorphous form of celecoxib (CEL) is lost due to its proclivity to lose energy and undergo solvent-mediated devitrification. Theoretical assessment of solubility advantage(More)
Irbesartan (IBS) is a hydrophobic drug with poor aqueous solubility and dissolution rate. Solid dispersions (SDs) of IBS were prepared with both small molecules (tartaric acid and mannitol) and polymeric additives (polyvinyl-pyrrolidone, PVP, and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, HPMC). A 9.5 and 7 folds enhancement in solubility over the crystalline form(More)
This study deals with characterization and quantification of form I and form II of clopidogrel bisulphate (CLP), a selective and irreversible inhibitor of ADP-induced platelet aggregation. Thermal (DSC, TGA, HSM), crystallographic (XRD) and spectroscopic (FTIR) methods were used for characterization. After characterization of active pharmaceutical(More)
The present study was performed to determine the relative contribution of both passive and nonpassive transport processes in jejunal absorption of gabapentin. The oral absorption of gabapentin was studied using in situ single pass intestinal perfusion technique in fasted rats. Unbiased intrinsic membrane absorption parameters such as maximal flux, Michaelis(More)
The advent of high-speed tableting and slug capsule-filling machines has ushered in an increasingly important role for the lubricants to enact during manufacturing of dosage forms. Although lubricants help in processing, they can also adversely affect the flow properties and dissolution profile of the drug. It is thus critical to maintain a balance between(More)
Accurate quantification of crystalline phases present in drug materials is becoming increasingly important, due to stringent regulatory concerns about polymorph characterization and control in drug substances and products. In the present study, a quantification method for polymorphic forms of olanzapine (OLZ) has been developed using powder X-ray(More)
Spherical crystallization technique combines crystallization and agglomeration directly to generate spherical crystals with improved micromeretic properties, thus obviating need for further processing by granulation and agglomeration. The present study was focused on spherical crystallization of an antihelmentic drug - Mebendazole (MBZ) - using spherical(More)
