Kumar, Praveen, and Chhater Singh. 1966, 55, 482-487. Ind. Typically, samples can be examined under the polarized light microscope and images can be taken using digital camera and analyzed by the Motic Images Plus 2.0 software. Various supercritical fluid technologies used in pharmaceutical processing include: •Â Â Rapid expansion of supercritical solutions (RESS), •Â Â Supercritical antisolvent (SAS) precipitation technique. PVP (Polyvinylpyrrolidone) dissolved in organic solvents undergoes a transition to a glassy state upon evaporation of the solvent [24, 25, 26]. By controlling the level of pressure/temperature /modifier, SC-CO2 can dissolve a broad range of compounds, both polar and non-polar. J. Pharm. 12 issues 23-24, pp. Due to the large surface area of the droplets, the solvent rapidly evaporates and solid dispersion is formed quickly. Nanotechnology. This is because most of the carriers are hydrophilic whereas most of the drugs are hydrophobic organic substances. Consequently, numerous attempts have been made to modify the dissolution characteristics of certain drugs in an effort to attain more rapid and more complete absorption4. Recently developed X-ray equipment is semiquantitative. Finding a suitable solvent that will dissolve both the drug and the carrier is very difficult and sometimes impossible. These systems show very high drug dissolution rates compared to control samples. J.Phram. Hence, this system would be expected to yield much higher rates of dissolution than simple eutectic systems. Since the chosen carriers are generally hydrophilic and the drugs are hydrophobic, the selection of a common solvent is difficult and its complete removal, necessitated by its toxic nature, is imperative. Sci. 2004, 93, 124-131. The prodrug alternations possible following chemical modification of the parent drug include changes in the solubility properties. J. Pharm. J Dispersion Sci Tech. 2011, 6, 667-676. This may result in tacky or glassy and unmanageable dispersions, which will require storage at elevated temperature to facilitate hardening. G.F.P. Multicomponent amorphous nanofibers electrospun from hot aqueous solutions of a poorly soluble drug. Speiser P. Galenische Aspecte der Arzneimittelwirkung. This method is particularly useful for drugs that have high melting points or that are thermolabile. Method Validation for Solubility Testing . BCS classification of the compounds was then completed using permeability data obtained from the literature. Yu L, Amorphous pharmaceutical solids: preparation, characterization and stabilization, Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews. The solid dispersion may also be called solid-state dispersion. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Unlike conventional emulsions, microemulsions form spontaneously on mixing with little or no mechanical energy applied. Percolation is a solubilizing system used in solid formulation to enhance drug dissolution by using a percolation matrix. •Â Â Inhibited drug precipitation from supersaturated solution [19, 20] to resulting metastable drug polymorphous with higher solubility and dissolution rate in the presence of the carrier . But Speiser [35, 36] and Huttenrach  were the first persons who use this technology for pharmaceutical purpose.A melt extrusion consists of the following sections: •Â Â A heated barrel that consists of extruder screws to convey and mix the fed materials.

The formulation of poorly water-soluble drugs has always been a challenging problem faced by pharmaceutical scientists and it is expected to increase because approximately 40% or more of the new chemical entities being generated through drug discovery programs are poorly water-soluble. Among the techniques to increase aqueous solubility / dissolution rate the formulation of solid dispersions is one of the most popular ones. Accordingly buffer in which it is soluble is determined. If, on the other hand, the solubility of the drug in solid state is not so high, crystallites of the drug become dispersed in the matrix. 1997, 23(11), 1115-1121. T. Vasconcelos, B. Sarmento, and P. Costa, âSolid dispersions as strategy to improve oral bioavailability of poor water soluble drugs,â Drug Discov. The high-energy state of the drug in this system generally produces much greater dissolution rates than the corresponding crystalline forms of the drug.

Solubility Determination of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Which Have Been Recently Added to the List of Essential Medicines in the Context of the Biopharmaceutics Classification System–Biowaiver, Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS). https://doi.org/10.1016/j.xphs.2018.01.025. In the fusion method of preparation, the carrier is heated to a temperature just above its melting point and the drug is incorporated into the matrix. The promising results of solid dispersion in solubility and dissolution rate enhancement of poorly soluble drugs can be attributed to various aspects: •Â Â From amorphous structure replacing crystalline structure [10, 11, 12]. Solubility shall be determined in a step-wise procedure that Vesicles can consist of one or more phospholipid bilayers with hydrophilic and hydrophobic compartments. Solid solutions consist of a solid solute dissolved in a solid solvent. The feasibility of the method has been demonstrated for spironolactone and griseofulvin dispersions in polyethylene glycol 6000 . As the solvent is being removed, supersaturation occurs followed by simultaneous precipitation of the constituents resulting in a solid residue. Yamashia, K., Nakate, T., Okimoto, K., Ohike, A., Tokunaga, Y., Ibuki, R., Higaki, K., Kimura, T.,. Nanotechnology. According to the BCS, an API can be assigned to 1 of 4 classes based on its solubility and permeability ().Besides requiring that the API belongs to an eligible BCS class, consideration must be given to therapeutic index, stability of the API under gastrointestinal conditions, eligibility of the dosage form for this procedure, and excipient effects on absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Leuner C, Dressman J, Improving drug solubility for oral delivery using solid dispersions, European Journal of Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics, 2000, 50, 47-60. [52, 53] Thermal analysis of samples can be carried out on a differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). This method enables a fast, economical determination of the BCS solubility class while reliably discriminating between “highly soluble” and “not highly soluble” compounds. The applications of electrospun products are expanding, especially in areas relating to tissue engineering and drug delivery.38-42The fast-drying electrospinning process is able to âfreezeâ drug molecules randomly in the solid polymer fiber matrix into a state comparable with that in a liquid form. Int J Pharm. The principle of glass solution formation was first reported by Chiou and Riegelman to enhance drug dissolution and absorption. This may be further complicated by the fact that different polymorphic forms of the same drug may be obtained if different solvents are used. Today, vol. Citation-(RIS 1966, 41, 321-342. The conversion of a drug to an amorphous form of coprecipitation resulting in increased dissolution has been reported for sulfisoxazole- PVP . J. Pharm. The hydrophobic compartments can carry or fill with hydrophobic or water-insoluble drugs while the hydrophilic compartments can load hydrophilic or water-soluble drugs. The Tolbutamide- PVP dispersion showed an instability that varied to the increase in glass transition (.
