Berberine (BER), possessing a variety of pharmacological functions, has caused a growing interest in recent years. More importantly, BER is a potential natural alternative to other synthetic antidiabetic drugs. However, poor gastrointestinal absorption and low oral bioavailability have limited its development for further clinical application. In this study,(More)
OBJECTIVE To prepare ginkgo biloba extract (GBE) sustained-release tablets and observe its in vitro release profile. METHOD GBE sustained-release tablets were prepared by direct compression method using sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC-Na) and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC) as matrix excipients. Based on the result of single-factor selecting(More)
Although the taste-masking of bitter drug using ion exchange resin has been recognized, in vitro testing using an electronic tongue (e-Tongue) and in vivo bitterness test by human panel test was not fully understood. In case of orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) containing bitter medicine, in vitro and in vivo disintegration is also importance for dosage(More)
This study was performed to investigate the in vitro release characteristics of levodropropizine (LDP) from novel dual-coated sustained release (SR) pellets, and evaluate the pharmacokinetics of a novel controlled release (CR) preparation composed of the dual-coated SR pellets and immediate release (IR) LDP pellets. The dual-coated SR pellets composed of a(More)
Valsartan (VAL) shows poor oral bioavailability mainly as a result of its low water solubility at low pH. This study is designed to investigate the dissolution properties and physicochemical characteristics of novel PVP-based solid dispersions (SDs) containing VAL. The SDs were prepared with polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP-K30) as a hydrophilic polymer, sodium(More)
The aim of this study was to develop novel mucoadhesive pellets containing valsartan (VAL) with enhanced oral bioavailability. Two types of VAL loaded core pellets were prepared by an extrusion/spheronization method, and further dry-coated with a mixture of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) and carbomer (CB) at different ratios. The effects of the pellet(More)
To prepare and evaluate dry powder inhalation (DPI) of extraction of Trollius chinensis Bunge (TCB). Orthodox design was employed to optimize the parameters of spray drying to prepare micronized TCB powder, the DPI was prepared by mixing micronized TCB powder and lactose. The results showed that the fine particle fraction (FPF) and emitted dose (ED) of(More)
