The oral cavity displays an attractive route in drug administration that is not associated with gastric transit and hepatic first-pass metabolism. However, limiting factors for an efficient transit of drugs through the oral mucosa are poor water solubility and permeability. Hence, various strategies exist to enhance solubility. Specifically, nanotechnology(More)
The controlled preparation of different crystal morphologies with varying preferential orientation with respect to the substrate is of crucial importance in many fields of applications. In this work, the controlled preparation of different phenytoin morphologies and the dependency of the preferential orientation of those crystallites is related with the(More)
CONTEXT Manufacturing solid low-dose pharmaceutical products has always the homogeneity challenge. In continuous manufacturing, there is the additional challenge of feeding active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) dry powder at low rates. This paper presents a method for feeding API particles into a continuous extrusion process using a suspension. The(More)
Human exposure to nanoparticles increases because nano-sized materials are included in food, consumer and medicinal products, as well as being present in the environment. Routine cytotoxicity screening evaluates effects only upon acute exposure, usually 24h, but prolonged contact with nanoparticles might result in intracellular accumulation and disturbance(More)
Given the increasing number of poorly soluble and thus poorly bioavailable active pharmaceutical materials, there is a demand for innovative formulation platforms for such molecules. Thus a focus on enhancing dissolution properties of poorly soluble drugs exists. Within this study, the spin coating of acetone solutions containing(More)
The preparation of solid crystalline films at surfaces is of great interest in a variety of fields. Within this work the preparation of pharmaceutically relevant thin films containing the active pharmaceutical ingredient phenytoin is demonstrated. The preparation techniques applied include drop casting, spin coating, and vacuum deposition. For the solution(More)
Exploratory data-driven methods such as Fuzzy clustering analysis (FCA) and Principal component analysis (PCA) may be considered as hypothesis-generating procedures that are complementary to the hypothesis-led statistical inferential methods in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Here, a comparison between FCA and PCA is presented in a systematic(More)
This paper presents a novel one-step process for converting a liquid stabilized nano-suspension into a solid formulation via hot-melt extrusion combined with an internal devolatilization process (nano-extrusion, NANEX). A polymer (Soluplus®) was fed into the extruder and molten, after which a stable nano-suspension was added via side-feeding devices. The(More)
Since more than 40% of today's drugs have low stability, poor solubility and/or limited ability to cross certain biological barriers, new platform technologies are required to address these challenges. This paper describes a novel continuous process that converts a stabilized aqueous nano-suspension into a solid oral formulation in a single step (i.e., the(More)
