The main objective of this study was to prepare a solid form of lipid-based self-emulsifying drug delivery system (SEDDS) by spray drying liquid SEDDS with an inert solid carrier Aerosil 200 to improve the oral bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drug dexibuprofen. The liquid SEDDS was a system that consisted of dexibuprofen, Labrasol, Capryol 90 and(More)
To enhance the solubility and bioavailability of poorly water-soluble Coenzyme Q(10) (CoQ(10)), self-emulsifying drug delivery system (SEDDS) composed of oil, surfactant and cosurfactant for oral administration of CoQ(10) was formulated. The solubility of CoQ(10) was determined in various oils and surfactants. The formulations were prepared using two oils(More)
This study develops and tests a method to compute dosimetric images for an amorphous silicon (a-Si) flat-panel detector so that an accurate quantitative comparison between measured and computed portal images may be made. An EGS4-based Monte Carlo (MC) algorithm is developed to efficiently tally the energy deposition through the use of a virtual detector(More)
Niosomes have been reported as a possible approach to improve the low skin penetration and bioavailability characteristics shown by conventional topical vehicle for minoxidil. Niosomes formed from polyoxyethylene alkyl ethers (Brij) or sorbitan monoesters (Span) with cholesterol molar ratios of 0, 1 and 1.5 were prepared with varying drug amount 20-50mg(More)
Polymer micelles with cross-linked ionic cores were prepared by using block ionomer complexes of poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(methacrylic acid) (PEO-b-PMA) copolymer and divalent metal cations as templates. Doxorubicin (DOX), an anthracycline anticancer drug, was successfully incorporated into the ionic cores of such micelles via electrostatic interactions.(More)
PURPOSE Increasing numbers of atypical femoral fractures have been reported among long-term bisphosphonate users. We evaluated clinical characteristics of atypical femoral fractures throughout Korean multicenter studies. METHODS We retrospectively analysed the bone mineral density, prodromal symptoms before femoral fracture, and medication history of(More)
To develop a poloxamer-based solid suppository with poloxamer mixtures, the melting point of various formulations composed of poloxamer 124 (P 124) and poloxamer 188 (P 188) were investigated. The dissolution and pharmacokinetic study of diclofenac sodium delivered by the poloxamer-based suppository were performed. Furthermore, the identification test in(More)
PURPOSE The continuous scanning mode of electronic portal imaging devices (EPID) that offers time-resolved information has been newly explored for verifying dynamic radiation deliveries. This study seeks to determine operating conditions (dose rate stability and time resolution) under which that mode can be used accurately for the time-resolved dosimetry of(More)
To develop a novel ibuprofen-loaded solid dispersion with enhanced bioavailability, various ibuprofen-loaded solid dispersions were prepared with water, HPMC and poloxamer. The effect of HPMC and poloxamer on aqueous solubility of ibuprofen was investigated. The dissolution and bioavailability of solid dispersion in rats were then evaluated compared to(More)
In this study, we report a facile method to construct a bioactive (poly(phenylalanine)-b-poly(l-histidine)-b-poly(ethylene glycol) polypeptide nanoconstruct to co-load doxorubicin (DOX) and quercetin (QUR) (DQ-NV). The smart pH-sensitive nanovehicle was fabricated with precisely tailored drug-to-carrier ratio that resulted in accelerated, sequential drug(More)
