Studies of the phase transitions in an active substance contained in a solid dosage form are very complicated but essential, especially if an active substance is classified as a BCS Class IV drug. The purpose of this work was the development of sensitive methods for the detection of the phase transitions in the aripiprazole tablets containing initially its(More)
An HPLC method for determination of related substances in temozolomide drug substance was developed. Particular attention was paid to the stability studies due to the fact that temozolomide is unstable in a solution and quickly decomposes to its main degradation product 5-amino-4-imidazolecarboxamide (AIC). A mixture of diluted acetic acid and acetonitrile(More)
In this article, details of crystal and molecular structures of sunitinib malate (SUM), an anticancer therapeutic, and its key synthetic intermediate are presented. Both these compounds were also characterized spectroscopically and thermally. SUM crystallizes in the monoclinic P2(1) space group with two molecules in the asymmetric part of the unit cell,(More)
In this article the crystal structures of the starting material TZ-5 and the key intermediate TZ-6 of temozolomide (TZ-7), an anticancer therapeutic agent, are presented, together with their spectroscopic and thermal characteristics. Both compounds crystallize in the triclinic P-1 space group. X-ray crystallography studies proved that the compound TZ-6(More)
Stability studies of pramipexole dihydrochloride performed under following conditions of temperature and relative humidity (RH): 25 degrees C 60% RH and 40 degrees C 75% RH revealed its tendency to the water sorption and the monohydrate formation. The structural changes occurring during storage were studied by infrared spectroscopy and X-ray powder(More)
Gold nanoparticles conjugated with drug substances are used in diagnostics and therapies. Apart from the combinations involving gold nanoparticles conjugated with drug substances through linkers, a direct bonding is also known. In our paper the example of such a direct bonding between gold nanoparticles and genistein (AuNPs-GE) is presented. This conjugate(More)
The preparation of stable amorphous pemetrexed disodium of pharmaceutical purity as well as the process optimization for the preparation of the hemipentahydrate form of pemetrexed disodium are described. Analytical methods for the polymorphic and chemical purity studies of pemetrexed disodium and pemetrexed diacid forms were developed. The physicochemical(More)
Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) have been widely used as nanocarriers in drug delivery application. However, the binding mechanism between AuNPs and drug bases still remains a puzzle. Our study included: (i) optimization of three synthesis of the AuNPs-pemetrexed (PE) nanocomposites formation which was monitored by UV-Vis spectroscopy, (ii) identification of PE(More)
Crystal and molecular structures of 2 conformational polymorphs (forms I and II) of olopatadine hydrochloride, an antiallergic agent, are presented. Both crystal modifications crystallize in the monoclinic crystal system with 1 olopatadine hydrochloride molecule in the Z configuration in the asymmetric unit. Molecules are arranged into the centrosymmetric(More)
The Parkes Weber syndrome (PWS), first described in 1907 [1], is characterized by triad of arteriovenous fistulas (AVF), varicose veins and bone and soft tissue hypertrophy leading to limb enlargement. The symptoms of PWS are congenital and present at birth. Vascular anomalies usually affect a limb, most commonly a leg, and less often a trunk. Capillary(More)
