Increase in Dissolution Rate of Simvastatin by Amorphous Solid Dispersion System with Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose Polymer

The objective of the present study was to prepare amorphous solid dispersion system simvastatin–hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) to enhance the dissolution rate. Amorphous solid dispersion of simvastatin was prepared by solvent technique using HPMC as carrier with ratio of 1:1, 1:3 and 1:5 (w/w). Physicochemical properties of solid dispersions were… (More)
