The new SeDeM Method is proposed for testing the batch-to-batch reproducibility of the same active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in powder form. The procedure describes the study of the galenic properties of substances in powder form in terms of the applicability of direct compression technology. Through experimental determination of the SeDeM Method(More)
Ionic gelation is the most frequently used method to obtain chitosan-tripolyphosphate nanoparticles due to its simplicity and because it does not generate waste solvents in the samples prepared. This paper presents a study of the physical factors involved in this method for obtaining nanoparticles in order to determine which of them significantly influences(More)
A new HPLC-RP method has been developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of benzocaine, two preservatives (propylparaben (nipasol) and benzyl alcohol) and degradation products of benzocaine in a semisolid pharmaceutical dosage form (benzocaine gel). The method uses a Nucleosil 120 C18 column and gradient elution. The mobile phase consisted(More)
Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) are being considered as a new approach for therapeutics for many known diseases. In addition to drug delivery, their use as non-viral vectors for gene delivery can be achieved by the inclusion of cationic lipids, which provide a positive surface potential that favours binding to the DNA backbone. This work is based on the(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the in vitro activity and cytotoxicity of meglumine antimoniate microspheres produced by spray drying on Leishmania infantum and the effect of the excipients used in them. The parasite strain shows sensitivity to the meglumine antimoniate microspheres prepared. All the antimony IC50 values from encapsulated(More)
In recent years the use of solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) as transport systems for the delivery of drugs and biomolecules has become particularly important. The use of cationic SLNs developed by the technique of microemulsion, which are complexed with DNA in order to study their application as non-viral vectors in gene therapy, is reported. The(More)
Application of the new SeDeM Method is proposed for the study of the galenic properties of excipients in terms of the applicability of direct-compression technology. Through experimental studies of the parameters of the SeDeM Method and their subsequent mathematical treatment and graphical expression (SeDeM Diagram), six different DC diluents were analysed(More)
As a methodology for characterizing substances with regard to its viability in direct compression, the SeDeM Diagram Expert System may be considered a new tool in terms of the number of parameters applied and its optimization. The paper is based on the experimental SeDeM characterization study of 51 directly compressible (DC) excipients. After selecting the(More)
As a methodology for characterizing substances in relation to their viability in direct compression, the SeDeM Diagram Expert System may be considered an open system in terms of the number of parameters applied and the optimization of these parameters. With the experience acquired from applying the SeDeM Diagram, in this study, we propose optimizing the(More)
The SeDeM diagram expert system has been used to study excipients, Captopril and designed formulations for their galenic characterization and to ascertain the critical points of the formula affecting product quality to obtain suitable formulations of Captopril direct compression SR matrix tablets. The application of the SeDeM diagram expert system enables(More)
