The aim of this study was to gain insight into the feasibility of using microparticles (MPs) constituted by the biodegradable poly (DL-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) and a number of cyclodextrins (CDs) as an orally sustained delivery system of the hypnotic agent etizolam (ETZ). A further aim of the work was to investigate the effects of different CDs on the morphology, loading, and release properties of the MPs prepared. For these purposes, ETZ alone, and ETZ/CD-PLGA loaded MPs were prepared by… Expand
PLA nanoparticles coated with a β-cyclodextrin polymer shell: preparation, characterization and release kinetics of a hydrophobic compound.
The main features which are the slow kinetics, the dilution-induced release and the total release of encapsulated BP are in good agreement with a mechanism mainly controlled by diffusion of BP and by its binding with the β-CDs cavities present at the surface of NPs. Expand
Cellulose-Based Matrix Microspheres of Prednisolone Inclusion Complex: Preparation and Characterization
After enhancing the solubility of prednisolone by inclusion into HPβCD, the drug release was easily modified in the microsphere formulation and it was demonstrated that the CDs in these microspheres were able to modulate several properties such as morphology, drug loading, and release properties.

Spray Dried Chitosan Microparticles for Intravesical Delivery of Celecoxib: Preparation and Characterization
A new CB intravesical formulation than can easily be administered with a catheter and is able to release the drug at the target site for several hours was realized and could be a good alternative to classic oral CB administration. Expand
β‐cyclodextrin in personal care formulations: role on the complexation of malodours causing molecules
The aim of this study was to prove the capability of β‐cyclodextrin (β‐CD) to interact with some representative molecules responsible to cause body malodour, such as carboxylic acids, thiols andExpand
New approach for detoxification of patients dependent on benzodiazepines and Z-drugs for reduction of psychogenic complications.
Individually prepared pharmaceutics with different and precise diazepam contents can be used for comfortable detoxification and also may eliminate psychogenic stress during switching, tapering, and the withdrawal period. Expand
Simultaneous HPLC Determination of Butenafine Hydrochloride and Betamethasone in a Cream Formulation
A fast, specific, accurate and precise reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic method was developed for the simultaneous determination of butenafine hydrochloride and betamethasone inExpand


Encapsulation and release of the hypnotic agent zolpidem from biodegradable polymer microparticles containing hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin.
A need for further pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies resulted to fully evaluate the utility of this last formulation of the hypnotic agent zolpidem for the sustained delivery of ZP. Expand
Preparation and characterisation of poly (D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) microspheres containing desferrioxamine
Abstract The iron chelator desferrioxamine (DFO) demonstrates antimalarial activity upon multiple or continuous parenteral administration. The aim of this study was to develop a controlled releaseExpand
Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) microspheres for the controlled release of oligonucleotide/polyethylenimine complexes.
Biodegradable microspheres encapsulating oligonucleotides/PEI complexes have a great potential as controlled release system because they allow the sustained release of an oligon nucleotide carrier that crosses biological membranes and locates in nucleus. Expand
Cyclodextrins and carrier systems.
This paper describes two new possibilities of using cyclodextrins to increase water solubility and bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drugs intended for targeting delivery by the oral or the parenteral route and their potential interest for water-insoluble drugs. Expand
Effects of salt addition on the microencapsulation of proteins using W/O/W double emulsion technique.
Modification of the external water phase by adding salts is a simple and efficient method to encapsulate stabilized protein solution, with high encapsulation efficiency and good microsphere characteristics. Expand
Mechanisms by which cyclodextrins modify drug release from polymeric drug delivery systems.
This paper reviews the incorporation of various cyclodextrins into polymeric formulations and the mechanisms by whichcyclodextrin/polymer formulations act to modify drug release are considered. Expand
Improvement of the encapsulation efficiency of oligonucleotide-containing biodegradable microspheres.
The addition of salts or sorbitol to the external aqueous phase significantly improved the encapsulation efficiency, even at high theoretical drug loadings, and the microparticles had a denser structure with a smooth, pore-free surface. Expand
Osmotic Properties of Sulfobutylether and Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrins
Empirical correlations of osmolality with concentration and TDS allowed the prediction of oSMolality over a wide concentration range and gave some useful insights into the behavior of CD derivatives in solution. Expand
In vitro characterization of methotrexate loaded poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid microspheres and antitumor efficacy in Sarcoma-180 mice bearing tumor.
