The aim of the present study was the formulation and evaluation of controlled release polymeric tablets of Diclofenac Potassium by wet granulation method for the release rate, release pattern and the mechanism involved in drug release. Formulations having three grades of polymer Ethocel (7P; 7FP, 10P, 10FP, 100P, 100FP) in several drugs to polymer ratios(More)
Being controlled release dosage forms, tablets allow an improved absorption and release profiles of Ofloxacin. The fact that drugs with fine particles size can be compressed well after wetting, so in our research studies Ofloxacin controlled release matrix tablets were prepared by wet granulation technique. In order to investigate the potential of Ethyl(More)
The present study was conducted to formulate and evaluate flurbiprofen transdermal gel. A standard calibration curve was constructed to obtain a regression line equation to be used for finding out the concentration of drug in samples. Olive oil was used as penetration enhancer and was added in different concentrations to some selected formulations to see(More)
Pulmonary infection namely tuberculosis is characterized by alveolar macrophages harboring a large microbe population. The chitosan nanoparticles exhibit fast extracellular drug release in aqueous biological milieu. This study investigated the matrix effects of chitosan nanoparticles on extracellular drug diffusion into macrophages. Oligo, low, medium and(More)
The study investigated aerosolization, pulmonary inhalation, intracellular trafficking potential in macrophages and pharmacokinetics profiles of rifampicin-oleic acid first-generation nanoemulsion and its respective chitosan- and chitosan-folate conjugate-decorated second and third-generation nanoemulsions, delivered via nebulization technique. The(More)
Controlled-release (CR) matrix tablet of 4 mg risperidone was developed using flow bound dry granulation–slugging method to improve its safety profile and compliance. Model formulations F1, F2, and F3, consisting of distinct blends of Methocel® K100 LV-CR and Ethocel® standard 7FP premium, were slugged. Each batch of granules (250–1,000 μm), obtained by(More)
