BACKGROUND Active coating is an important unit operation in the pharmaceutical industry. The quality, stability, safety and performance of the final product largely depend on the amount and uniformity of coating applied. Active coating is challenging regarding the total amount of coating and its uniformity. Consequently, there is a strong demand for tools,(More)
The objective was to prepare neural models identifying relationships between formulation characteristics and pellet properties based on algorithmic approach of crucial variables selection and neuro-fuzzy systems application. The database consisted of information about 227 pellet formulations prepared by extrusion/spheronization method, with various model(More)
Dry granulation using roll compaction is a typical unit operation for producing solid dosage forms in the pharmaceutical industry. Dry granulation is commonly used if the powder mixture is sensitive to heat and moisture and has poor flow properties. The output of roll compaction is compacted ribbons that exhibit different properties based on the adjusted(More)
Soft chewable dosage forms are a new approach to improve the compliance of medication for special patient populations. Based on their texture, they are chewed several times before they get swallowed. A suitable dissolution method based on in vivo chewing data was developed. The method covers parts of dissolution within the oral cavity (simulation of(More)
The purpose of this work was to develop a mathematical model of the drug dissolution (Q) from the solid lipid extrudates based on the empirical approach. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) and genetic programming (GP) tools were used. Sensitivity analysis of ANNs provided reduction of the original input vector. GP allowed creation of the mathematical(More)
Traditional pharmaceutical dissolution tests determine the amount of drug dissolved over time by measuring drug content in the dissolution medium. This method provides little direct information about what is happening on the surface of the dissolving tablet. As the tablet surface composition and structure can change during dissolution, it is essential to(More)
Coating of solid dosage forms is an important unit operation in the pharmaceutical industry. In recent years, numerical simulations of drug manufacturing processes have been gaining interest as process analytical technology tools. The discrete element method (DEM) in particular is suitable to model tablet-coating processes. For the development of accurate(More)
The suitability of the new isomalt grade galenIQ™ 801 for dry granulation and following tableting is evaluated in this study. Isomalt alone, as well as a blend of equal parts with dibasic calcium phosphate, is roll compacted and tableted. Particle size distribution and flowability of the granules and friability and disintegration time of the tablets(More)
There is very often a great gap between the performance of oral drug delivery systems in vitro and in vivo. During the last decade modern high resolution and/or real time imaging techniques like Magnetic Marker Monitoring (MMM) [1] or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) [2, 3] have provided new insights into the in vivo performance of drug delivery systems and(More)
