Antimicrobial agents should be added to lecithin-stabilized submicron emulsions when these preparations are non-sterile products or when packed in multidose containers. Eleven antimicrobials were introduced to a standard submicron emulsion. The emulsions were adjusted to pH 5.0 or 8.2 prior aseptic filtration or thermal sterilization, respectively. The(More)
The aim of this study was to find a biocompatible, lecithin-based carrier for paclitaxel (PTX) suitable for intravenous infusion and ensuring a soluble PTX concentration of 100 mg/100 ml or higher for at least 24 h. Aqueous dispersions of egg or soya lecithin (water-lecithin dispersions, WLD), mixed micellar (MM) solutions of egg lecithin and sodium(More)
The purpose of the study was to investigete skin absorption and elimination of three acyclic terpenes: citronellol (C), linalool (L) and linalyl acetate (LA). The pure terpenes were applied onto the human skin in vitro, and after 1-4 h, their content in the stratum corneum layers and in the epidermis/dermis was determined using gas chromatography.(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the properties of granules and tablets with carbamazepine which were prepared employing a fluidized hot-melt granulation (FHMG) technique. The FHMG process was carried out at 65°C. Macrogol 6000 (PEG 6000) was used as a binder at the content 10% (w/w) of the granulated mass. Granules containing up to 70% (w/w)(More)
Ph.Eur. and BP have introduced a dissolution apparatus for suppositories. Suitability of the apparatus for quality control of paracetamol suppositories was evaluated and the effect of experimental conditions on dissolution profiles was studied. Paracetamol suppositories containing 80-500 mg of the drug, on fatty base, were obtained from four manufacturers(More)
Aqueous lecithin dispersions (WLD, water-lecithin-dispersion) were obtained by dispersing egg lecithin (1.2 or 2.4% w/w) in an isotonic mixture of glycerol and water. The solubilization potential of the pure phospholipid structures was investigated and compared with that of submicron emulsions containing the same amounts of lecithin and 10 or 20% (w/w) of(More)
Submicron emulsions containing pilocarpine as ion-pair with mono-dodecylphosphoric acid were prepared. Physical stability of these preparations was confirmed during 4 months of storage at 4 degrees C. Approximately 50% of the drug was found in the aqueous phase of emulsion separated using an ultrafiltration technique, while the rest was present in the oily(More)
Most quantitative in vitro approaches to determine irritancy have examined the potential of compounds to decrease biological functions or inhibit growth of cells. Irritants, however, are known to generally have the opposite effect in vivo, i.e. to stimulate cell division. This property has not been directly studied in vitro. We examined the ability of(More)
Fast disintegrating sublingual tablets containing nitroglycerin either complexed with beta-cyclodextrin (NTG-CD) or titrated with crosspovidone (NTG-CP) were prepared using Starch 1500 or StarLac as disintegrants. Regarding disintegration time and stability of the active substance Starch 1500 was more appropriate for NTG-CD while for NTG-CP StarLac was(More)
