The recent approval of lidocaine hydrochloride and epinephrine combined iontophoretic patch (Lidosite Vysteris Inc.) for localized pain treatment by FDA has invigorated the gaining interest in iontophoretic drug delivery systems for the transdermal delivery of drugs. This technique of facilitated movement of ions across a membrane under the influence of an(More)
The present study aimed at developing an optimal nanoemulsion of ezetimibe and evaluating its stability, pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic potential. Solubility of ezetimibe was determined in various vehicles. Surfactants and cosurfactants were grouped in two different combinations to construct pseudoternary phase diagrams. Formulations were selected from(More)
The present research work focused on the comparative assessment of porous versus nonporous films in order to develop a suitable buccoadhesive device for the delivery of glibenclamide. Both films were prepared by solvent casting technique using the 32 full factorial design, developing nine formulations (F1–F9). The films were evaluated for ex vivo(More)
The goals of the current study were to develop and characterize a nanoemulsion of ezetimibe, evaluate its stability, lipid lowering and pharmacokinetic profile. Solubility of the drug was estimated in various oils and surfactants. Existence of nanoemulsion region was confirmed by plotting phase diagrams. Various thermodynamic stability and dispersibility(More)
The objectives of the present study were to circumvent the moisture-associated instability, enhance bioavailability and achieve enhanced passive targeting of melphalan to the ovaries. Solubility of the drug was determined in various excipients to select the components of nanoemulsion. Pseudoternary phase diagrams were constructed using aqueous titration(More)
There has been a burgeoning interest among the research scientists to associate the drugs to polymeric particulate systems due to the propensity of these systems to interact with the mucosal surface. Transmucosal delivery of drugs through mucosal lining of nasal, rectal, vaginal, ocular and oral cavity entails advantages like prolongation of residence time(More)
Nanoemulsions have garnered considerable attention in research as well as in therapeutics due to their advantages like thermodynamic stability, optical clarity, ease of preparation, and unique property of behaving as super-solvent for solubilizing both hydrophobic and hydrophilic solutes. Due to above mentioned attributes, nanoemulsions find numerous(More)
The objectives of the present study were to develop an optimal nanoemulsion of ezetimibe and evaluate its stability, lipid lowering and pharmacokinetic potential. Solubility of ezetimibe was determined in various vehicles. Pseudoternary phase diagrams were constructed to determine the existence of nanoemulsion region. Formulations were selected from the(More)
The objective of the present study was to develop a mucoadhesive sustained release bilayered buccal patch of pravastatin sodium using Eudragit S100 as the base matrix so as to surmount hepatic first pass metabolism and gastric instability of the drug. A 3² full factorial design was employed to study the effect of independent variables viz. levels of HPMC(More)
The present study aimed to statistically optimize a colon specific formulation of 5-Fluorouracil for the treatment of colon cancer. A 3(2) full factorial design was used for optimization. The independent variables employed were amount of pectin and amount of starch paste, each at three levels. The evaluated responses were hardness, percent cumulative drug(More)
