The goal of this study was to develop a quick, reliable, and cost-effective permeability model for predicting transdermal penetration of compounds. The Parallel Artificial Membrane Permeability Assay (PAMPA) was chosen for this purpose, as it already has been successfully used for estimating passive gastrointestinal absorption and blood-brain barrier(More)
Electrospinning (ES) and extrusion of a poorly water-soluble active pharmaceutical ingredient were used to improve its dissolution, which is a major challenge in the field of pharmaceutical technology. Spironolactone was applied as model drug and recently developed polyvinyl caprolactame-polyvinyl acetate-polyethylene glycol graft copolymer (Soluplus®) was(More)
Raman chemical imaging was used in the characterization of drug-excipient interactions between a drug and different types of cyclodextrins. Detailed analysis was carried out regarding the interactions between the active ingredient (API) and the cyclodextrins and the heterogeneity of the samples was studied using multivariate curve resolution-alternating(More)
Application of amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) is considered one of the most promising approaches to increase the dissolution rate and extent of bioavailability of poorly water soluble drugs. Such intervention is often required for new drug candidates in that enablement, bioavailability is not sufficient to generate a useful product. Importantly,(More)
The solvent-free melt electrospinning (MES) method was developed to prepare a drug delivery system with fast release of carvedilol (CAR), a drug with poor water solubility. To the authors knowledge, this is the first report for preparing drug-loaded melt electrospun fibers. Cationic methacrylate copolymer of Eudragit® E type was used as a fiber forming(More)
Three solvent based methods: spray drying (SD), electrospinning (ES) and air-assisted electrospinning (electroblowing; EB) were used to prepare solid dispersions of itraconazole and Eudragit E. Samples with the same API/polymer ratios were prepared in order to make the three technologies comparable. The structure and morphology of solid dispersions were(More)
Melt electrospinning (MES) was used to prepare fast dissolving fibrous drug delivery systems in the presence of plasticizers. This new method was found promising in the field of pharmaceutical formulation because it combines the advantages of melt extrusion and solvent-based electrospinning. Lowering of the process temperature was performed using(More)
Fast-release nano- and microfibres of lipophilic spironolactone were prepared in a continuous manner by electrostatic spinning, in which the application of polyvinylpyrrolidone K90 as matrix polymer enabled formation of solid solutions. However, instead of the anticipated immediate drug release, temporary precipitation was observed. The polyvinylpyrrolidone(More)
High speed electrospinning (HSES), compatible with pharmaceutical industry, was used to demonstrate the viability of the preparation of drug-loaded polymer nanofibers with radically higher productivity than the known single-needle electrospinning (SNES) setup. Poorly water-soluble itraconazole (ITRA) was formulated with PVPVA64 matrix polymer using four(More)
Melt blowing (MB) was investigated to prepare a fast dissolving fibrous drug-loaded solid dispersion and compared with solvent-based electrospinning (SES) and melt electrospinning (MES). As a conventional solvent-free technique coupled with melt extrusion and using a high-speed gas stream, MB can provide high-quality micro- and nanofibers at industrial(More)
