Ordered mesoporous silica (OMS) materials are considered a promising drug delivery system for the dissolution enhancement of poorly soluble compounds. The purpose of the present work was to determine structural and behavioral changes of compressed OMS material necessary for the development of an immediate-release oral-dosage formulation. Two types of OMS(More)
The use of ordered mesoporous silica is one of the more recent and rapidly developing formulation techniques for enhancing the solubility of poorly water-soluble drugs. Their large surface area and pore volume make ordered mesoporous silica materials excellent candidates for efficient drug loading and rapid release. While this new approach offers many(More)
In this study, the potential of wet granulation of ordered mesoporous silica (OMS) material was evaluated to assess the risk of premature drug release during processing and to improve the bulk powder flow properties and compactibility for the development of an immediate release oral dosage form. The poorly water soluble model compounds, itraconazole,(More)
A multilaboratory study was conducted to compare the automated BAX system and the standard cultural methods for detection of Listeria monocytogenes in foods. Six food types (frankfurters, soft cheese, smoked salmon, raw, ground beef, fresh radishes, and frozen peas) were analyzed by each method. For each food type, 3 inoculation levels were tested: high(More)
The objective of this study was to compare agglomerations by melt and steam granulation of ordered, COK-12, and disordered, Syloid(®) 244 FP (244), mesoporous silica material. Poloxamer 188 (P188) and polyvinylpyrrolidone K25 (PVP) were chosen as binders for melt and steam granulation, respectively. The poorly water-soluble compound, itraconazole (ITZ), was(More)
The objectives of this study were to identify the key process parameters during steam granulation of disordered mesoporous silica material Syloid® 244 FP (244) and to compare two different binders: polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) K25 and hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose (HPMC). Itraconazole (ITZ) was selected as the model compound for the development of an oral(More)
This study investigates 3 amorphous technologies to improve the dissolution rate and oral bioavailability of flubendazole (FLU). The selected approaches are (1) a standard spray-dried dispersion with hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) E5 or polyvinylpyrrolidone-vinyl acetate 64, both with Vitamin E d-α-tocopheryl polyethylene glycol succinate; (2) a(More)
The bioavailability of the anthelminthic flubendazole was remarkably enhanced in comparison with the pure crystalline drug by developing completely amorphous electrospun nanofibres with a matrix consisting of hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin and polyvinylpyrrolidone. The thus produced formulations can potentially be active against macrofilariae parasites(More)
