The aim of this study was to prepare and characterize solid dispersions of water insoluble non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, indomethacin (IND), with polyethylene glycol 4000 (PEG4000) and Gelucire 50/13 (Gelu.) for enhancing the dissolution rate of the drug. The solid dispersions (SDs) were prepared by hot melting method at 1:1, 1:2 and 1:4 drug to(More)

IMplicit Pressure Explicit Saturation (IMPES) scheme with treating buoyancy and capillary forces is used to solve the two-phase water-CO 2 flow problem. In most of the previous studies of the two-phase flow, the buoyancy force term was ignored; however, in the case of liquid-gas systems such as water-CO 2 , the gravity term is very important to express the(More)
Information security policy is a critical property in any organization. For systems, the security policy addresses constraints on access by external systems and adversaries including programs and access to data by people. A continuous research effort is done throughout security policy aspects, such as policy procedures, documentation, policy enforcement,(More)
