INTRODUCTION Niche applicability and industrial adaptability have led hot melt extrusion (HME) techniques to gain wide acceptance and have, therefore, solidified their place in the array of pharmaceutical research and manufacturing operations. Melt extrusion's momentum has resulted in extensive research publications, reviews and patents on the subject for(More)
The aims of this investigation were to determine the distribution in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract of Eudragit S-100 encapsulated colon-specific sodium alginate microspheres containing 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in rats, and to perform pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies. Comparisons were with a control immediate-release (IR) formulation of 5-FU. 5-FU(More)
The present study was undertaken to provide a rationale for the marked difference in carcinogenic potential among isomeric diaminotoluenes, in relation to their ability to induce their own bioactivation through CYP1A induction, their genotoxic potential, and their ability to bind to the cytosolic aromatic hydrocarbon (Ah) receptor. Of the four possible(More)
This study investigated the processing parameters and formulation factors on the bioadhesive properties, temperature stability properties, and drug release properties of miconazole in PolyOx® and Klucel® matrix systems produced by Hot-melt Extrusion (HME) technology. Miconazole incorporated into these matrix systems were found to be stable for 8 months by(More)
The objective of this study was to improve the dissolution rate and to enhance the stability of a poorly water-soluble and low glass-trasition temperature (T(g)) model drug, fenofibrate, in low molecular weight grades of hydroxypropylcellulose matrices produced by hot-melt extrusion (HME). Percent drug loading had a significant effect on the extrudability(More)
The objective of this research work was to evaluate Klucel™ hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC) EF and ELF polymers, for solubility enhancement as well as to address some of the disadvantages associated with solid dispersions. Ketoprofen (KPR), a Biopharmaceutics Classification System class II drug with poor solubility, was utilized as a model compound.(More)
Clotrimazole (CT) is a poorly soluble antifungal drug that is most commonly employed as a topical treatment in the management of vaginal candidiasis. The present work focuses on a formulation approach to enhance the solubility of CT using cyclodextrin (CD) complexation. A CT-CD complex was prepared by a co-precipitation method. Various characterization(More)
