Developing a modified Pulsincap system


Pharmaceutical Technology Europe
Volume 21, Issue 11

Conclusion

Pulsatile drug release during a 24h period, consistent with the requirements for chronopharmaceutical drug delivery, was achieved from insoluble gelatin capsules, in which microencapsulated DS was sealed by a hydrogel plug (guar gum, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, sodium alginate, sodium carboxymethylcellulose). This modified Pulsincap dosage form could be beneficial to the chronotherapy of RA as it has demonstrated programmable, time and pHdependent, sitespecific drug release, and offers an effective controlledrelease alternative to traditional dosage forms that have been met with poor patient compliance.
