Cocrystal has attracted much attention in order to improve poor physicochemical properties, since cocrystal former crystallize with the ionic drugs as well as nonionic drugs. Cocrystal screening was usually conducted by crystallization, slurry and co-grinding techniques, however sensitivity, cost and time for screening were limited because of issues such as(More)
Cocrystals (CCs) used in the pharmaceutical industry are defined as complex crystals formed by reaction between an API and a cocrystal former (CCF); unlike salts, CCs do not show proton transfer. Recently, pharmaceutical CCs have been used to improve the drug-likeness of APIs, such as solubility and stability. Grinding is more effective for CC synthesis(More)
We report a case of multiple bone metastases from gastric cancer treated with combination chemotherapy of S-1 and CDDP. A 54-year-old man underwent distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer (Stage II) in March 2003. Multiple bone metastases complicated with DIC were diagnosed in September 2005. The patient was treated with combination chemotherapy of S-1 and(More)
To judge the developability and analyze functional mechanism of co-amorphouses, we investigated the physicochemical properties of co-amorphouses and compare the properties with the co-crystals having the same drug and counters. Co-amorphous compounds are a novel approach to improve the physicochemical properties of drugs. A co-amorphous is in an amorphous(More)
Case 1: A 62-year-old man was introduced to our hospital for Type 1 cardiac gastric cancer. On the abdominal CT, there was evidence of multiple liver metastases. The patient was treated with daily oral administration of TS-1 (120 mg/day) for 3 weeks followed by 2 weeks' rest and infusion of CDDP (60 mg/m2) on day 8 as 1 course. After completion of 1 course,(More)
Micronized cocrystal powders and amorphous spray-dried formulations were prepared and evaluated in vivo and in vitro as pulmonary absorption enhancement formulations of poorly soluble itraconazole (ITZ). ITZ cocrystals with succinic acid (SA) or l-tartaric acid (TA) with a particle size diameter of <2μm were successfully micronized using the jet-milling(More)
Solid-state characterization plays a vital role in lead optimization and candidate selection with the appropriate physicochemical properties for proper oral dosage formulation. Aqueous solubility is an important parameter in the successful development of oral dosage formulation since poor aqueous solubility limits absorption. In this study, we summarized an(More)
The aim of the present study was to develop a novel solubilization technique consisting of a nano-cocrystal suspension by integrating cocrystal and nanocrystal formulation technologies to maximize solubilization over current solubilizing technologies. Monodisperse carbamazepine-saccharin, indomethacin-saccharin, and furosemide-caffeine nano-cocrystal(More)
