Drug nanoparticles in suspensions can form aggregates leading to physical instability, which is traditionally mitigated using soluble polymers and surfactants. The aim of this paper was to explore common superdisintegrants, i.e., sodium starch glycolate (SSG), croscarmellose sodium (CCS), and crospovidone (CP), as novel class of dispersants for enhanced(More)
Nanocomposite microparticles (NCMPs) incorporating drug nanoparticles and wet-milled swellable dispersant particles were investigated as a surfactant-free drug delivery vehicle with the goal of enhancing the nanoparticle recovery and dissolution rate of poorly water-soluble drugs. Superdisintegrants were used as inexpensive, model, swellable dispersant(More)
Preparation of drug nanoparticles via wet media milling (nanomilling) is a very versatile drug delivery platform and is suitable for oral, injectable, inhalable, and buccal applications. Wet media milling followed by various drying processes has become a well-established and proven formulation approach especially for bioavailability enhancement of poorly(More)
Bioavailability of a poorly soluble drug can be improved by preparing a drug nanosuspension and subsequently drying it into nanocomposite microparticles (NCMPs). Unfortunately, drug nanoparticles aggregate during milling and drying, causing incomplete recovery and slow dissolution. The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of various classes of(More)
Formation of core-shell nanocomposites of Fenofibrate and Itraconazole, model poorly water soluble drugs, via fluidized bed (FB) coating of their well-stabilized high drug loaded nanosuspensions is investigated. Specifically, the extent of dissolution enhancement, when fine carrier particles (sub-50μm) as opposed to the traditional large carrier particles(More)
A major challenge in achieving size stability for relatively high concentration of fine particles from poorly water-soluble drug fenofibrate (FNB) is addressed through T-mixing based liquid antisolvent precipitation in the presence of ultrasonication and judicious use of stabilizers. Multiple stabilizers were screened in a batch mode prior to their(More)
Enhanced recovery/dissolution of two wet media-milled, poorly water-soluble drugs, Griseofulvin (GF) and Azodicarbonamide (AZD), incorporated into nanocomposite microparticles (NCMPs) via fluidized bed drying (FBD) and spray-drying (SD) was investigated. The effects of drying method, drug loading, drug aqueous solubility/wettability as well as synergistic(More)
A promising approach to increase the aqueous solubility, hence the bioavailability, of poorly water-soluble drugs is to convert them into their amorphous state through impregnation into mesoporous silica. Unfortunately, mesoporous silica is not yet available in bulk quantities due to high manufacturing costs. In this work, feasibility of using a(More)
