The aim of this study was to assess whether wet bead milling of dexamethasone and tacrolimus suspensions leads to a lower degree of crystallinity of nanocrystals, and if the degree of crystallinity affects the drug solubility, in addition to particle size. Powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) was used to determine the degree of crystallinity of the particles,(More)
The development of sensor pins which can be easily integrated into ball screw drives for preload measurement is described in this paper. The sensor’s base body consists out of a steel pin with a special shaped load region. This complex surface is coated and structured with a sensory thin film system based on a hydrogenated carbon layer. The layer shows an(More)
The surface properties of intravenously injected nanoparticles determine the acquired blood protein adsorption pattern and subsequently the organ distribution and cellular recognition. A series of poly[acrylonitrile-co-(N-vinyl pyrrolidone)] (PANcoNVP) model nanoparticles (133-181 nm) was synthesized, in which the surface properties were altered by changing(More)
In vitro drug release measurement is one of the most important methods used to assess the quality of a nanocarrier and estimate it́s in vivo performance. Different in vitro drug release methods have been used to investigate the drug release from nanocarriers, however, little information is available with regard to a comparison of these methods (e.g.(More)
The aim of this study was to determine, in situ, the saturation solubility and dissolution rate of nanocrystals of three poorly water-soluble drugs for dermal application. The nanocrystals were prepared by wet bead milling. Their size could be controlled by various process parameters. The saturation solubility was measured in water or in the presence of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES In the oral cavity, the mucosal tissues may develop a number of different pathological conditions, such as inflammatory diseases (gingivitis, periodontitis) and autoimmune disorders (eg, oral lichen planus) that require therapy. The application of topical drugs is one common therapeutic approach. However, their efficacy is limited.(More)
Lipid nanoparticles have gained increased interest in the field of dermal products because of various advantages such as improved drug absorption and controlled drug release. The main objective was to investigate the influence of drug solubility and type of lipid carrier on the in vitro drug release. Drugs of different solubilities in the release medium PBS(More)
The purpose of this study was to discriminate three crystal forms of carbamazepine (a BCS II drug) by in vitro dissolution testing and to correlate in vitro data with published in vivo data. A biphasic dissolution system (phosphate buffer pH6.8 and octanol) was used to evaluate the dissolution of the three polymorphic forms and to compare it with(More)
The purpose of this study was to discriminate the release behavior from three differently formulated racecadotril (BCS II) granules and to establish an in vitro-in vivo correlation. Three granule formulations of the lipophilic drug were prepared with equivalent composition but prepared with different manufacturing processes (dry granulation, wet granulation(More)
