SiO2, SiO2/PEG and SiO2/PDMS xerogels were examined as polymeric carriers for the controlled release of cisplatin--an antineoplasmic medicine. Drug/carrier systems were prepared by the sol-gel method. The effect of organic substitution of the silica xerogel matrix and drying conditions on the release of cisplatin was evaluated. Based on the presented(More)
The aim of this study was to obtain stable and controlled release silica xerogels containing metronidazole (MT) prepared with surfactants with different charges: cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) and hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC), which could be the promising carrier materials used as the implantable drug delivery systems.(More)
Silica xerogels doped with diclofenac diethylamine were prepared by the sol-gel method from a hydrolysed tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) solution containing diclofenac diethylamine. Two different catalysts, drying conditions and levels of water content were used to alter the microstructure of the silica xerogels. The aim of this study was to determine the rate of(More)
The aim of the present study was to utilize the sol-gel method to synthesize different forms of xerogel matrices for drugs and to investigate how the synthesis conditions and solubility of drugs influence the change of the profile of drug release and the structure of the matrices. Silica xerogels doped with drugs were prepared by the sol-gel method from a(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the physical properties, chemical structure and bioactivity of sol-gel processed oxide (SiO(2)-CaO-P(2)O(5)) composites used as controlled release materials for Metronidazole-drug applied in periodontal disease treatment. The obtained composite materials were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(More)
Cisplatin-an antineoplastic medicine-was incorporated into a polyethylene glycol (PEG)-modified silica xerogels received by the sol-gel method. The influence of PEG concentration and drying temperature on the release of cisplatin was studied. From our results we may state that addition of PEG (MW 600) and drying of silica xerogels at 80 degrees C augmented(More)
The spectrophotometric method based on the reaction of formation of silic-molybdenum blue for determination of silica (silicon dioxide) in hydrogenated fat was developed. Determination limit of silica in this method was 15.6 mg/kg and average recovery 77.77%. Using this method the content of silica in the edible fat (margarine) taken from the market was(More)
The objective of these investigations was an in vitro evaluation whether silicone oil OXANE of viscosity 5700 cSt clinically used in eye surgery as a substitute of the vitreous body, being in contact with an artificial polymer lens used as an implant of human lens, causes the changes in its optical properties. The paper presents the results of spectral(More)
In this study, oxide and polymer/oxide xerogels with metronidazole were prepared and examined as carriers of drug for the local application to the bone. The nanoporous SiO2–CaO–P2O5 and HPC–SiO2–CaO–P2O5 xerogel materials with different amounts of the polymer [hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC)] were prepared using the sol–gel technology, and their(More)
The aim of this study was to prepare and examine polymer/oxide xerogels with metronidazole (MT) as delivery systems for the local application of a drug to a bone. The nanoporous SiO2-CaO and PDMS-modified SiO2-CaO xerogel materials with different amounts of the polymer, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), were prepared by the sol-gel method. Characterization(More)
