Several beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) derivatives have been synthesized recently to improve the physicochemical properties and inclusion capacities of the parent molecule, however, there is limited information available about their cytotoxic effects. In this study we investigated the cytotoxic and hemolytic properties of various beta-CDs in correlation with(More)
The hemolytic activity and the cytotoxicity of PEG-based solubilizing agents on Caco-2 monolayer were investigated. In vitro tests can predict the irritancy potential and the delayed toxicity of the surfactants. There were significant concentration dependent differences between the result of the MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl))-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium(More)
The rheological properties of four lipophilic and three hydrophilic suppository bases were studied. The flow and viscosity curves, the initial, equilibrium and plastic viscosity as well as the Bingham's yield value of the systems were determined. It was found that the viscosity curves had two different parts in the examined shearing rate range: the part of(More)
Methodology and the results of the in vitro membrane diffusion and in vivo bioavailability studies are presented. The results confirm a correlation between in vitro and in vivo findings. Hydrophilic macrogol-mixture with great molecular mass can be recommended as the optimal vehicle for formulation of diazepam suppositories.
The main purpose of this study was to certify the effect of native silymarin oil (SM-oil) formulated in a self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS). The optimal formulation was 25% of SM-oil, 33.3 % of Cremophor RH40, 20% of Transcutol HP, 16.6% of Labrasol and 5% of Capryol 90. In this novel formulation the SM-oil was the active substance and the(More)
Status epilepticus is one of the most common neurologic emergencies in children, adolescents, and young adults. The advantage of diazepam suppository in medicinal therapy appears mainly in treatment of childhood epilepsy. A hydrophilic suppository base was investigated in solution by dynamic light scattering and results were compared to those of the(More)
Cyclodextrins (CDs) are widely used materials and still in the focus of drug development. In spite of the extensive studies, there is limited information about the cytotoxic effect of different derivatives. This study compares the cytotoxic effect of methylated beta-CDs and some ionic derivatives. The methylated CDs involved in this study differ in the(More)
In the first part of the publication the rheological properties of the vehicles used for the production of suppositories were studied in order to determine the ideal parameters for formulation. In this part a detailed methodology and the results of the in vitro membrane diffusion and in vivo bioavailability studies, are presented. The results confirm a(More)
