The aim of this study was to prepare and characterize nitrendipine nanosuspensions to enhance the dissolution rate and oral bioavailability of this drug. Nanosuspensions were prepared by the precipitation-ultrasonication method. The effects of five important process parameters, i.e. the concentration of PVA in the anti-solvent, the concentration of(More)
Insulin was complexed with sodium deoxycholate to form an insulin-sodium deoxycholate complex (Ins-SD-Comp) using an hydrophobic ion pairing method in aqueous phase to enhance the liposolubility of insulin. In order to obtain the maximal complexation efficiency, the molar ratio of sodium deoxycholate to insulin was found. The zeta potential method was used(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to blend liquid lipids with solid lipids to encapsulate curcumin in solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs), thereby improving the dispersibility and chemical stability of curcumin, prolonging its antitumour activity and cellular uptake and enhancing its bioavailability. METHODS Curcumin-loaded SLNs (C-SLNs) were prepared(More)
α-Tocopherol succinate hydrophobically modified chitosan (CS-TOS) containing 17 α-tocopherol groups per 100 anhydroglucose units was synthesized by coupling reaction. The formation of CS-TOS was confirmed by (1)H NMR and FT-IR analysis. In aqueous medium, the polymer could self-aggregate to form micelles, and the critical micelle concentration (CMC) was(More)
To investigate anti-solvent crystallization and growth mechanism of nitrendipine spherical crystals in an aqueous solution containing polymeric additives. Size and shape of crystals were investigated using laser diffractometry, optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Crystalline form was determined by X-ray powder diffractometer (XRPD).(More)
S.O (sodium oleate) is an anionic surfactant, which is able to forman ionic complex with positively charged insulin at suitable pH. In a previous study, the insulin-S.O (Ins-S.O) complex was prepared by a hydrophobic ion pairing (HIP) method to improve the apparent liposolubility of insulin. The formation of the complex was further confirmed by Zeta(More)
Epimedium-derived flavonoid glycosides are widely used for the prevention of osteoporosis, but these compounds generally exhibit poor membrane permeability and oral absorption. To address these limitations, the bioactive lipophilic aglycone icaritin (ICT) was selected and successfully developed into nanocrystals (ICTN) through the antisolvent-precipitation(More)
This study proposes a new concept of pH-sensitive poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) nanoparticle composite microcapsules for oral delivery of insulin. Firstly, insulin-sodium oleate complex was prepared by the hydrophobic ion pairing method and then encapsulated into PLGA nanoparticles by the emulsion solvent diffusion method. In order to reduce the burst(More)
VTK is not only an open-source code but also a powerful toolkit for visualization. According to the requirement of medical image processing and on the basis of visualization and display function of VTK, VC++2008 is used to design and implement a three-dimensional system which can be integrated into OK Series Image Board. This system is useful for advancing(More)
The aim of this paper is to study the methods of 3D visualization and the 3D interactive clipping of CT/MRI image sequence in arbitrary orientation based on the Visualization Toolkit (VTK). A new method for 3D CT/MRI reconstructed image clipping is presented, which can clip 3D object and 3D space of medical image sequence to observe the inner structure(More)
