Pharmaceutical Technology

The authors demonstrate how melt-extrusion and spray-drying methods can help to prepare solid dispersions of poorly soluble drugs using Eudragit polymers.

The authors examine common superdisintegrants (i.e., crospovidone Type A, crospovidone Type B, croscarmellose sodium, and sodium starch glycolate) with a set of poorly soluble drug actives and evaluate in vitro drug dissolution.

Pharmaceutical Technology

The authors examine the use of a novel highly functional pregelatinized starch as a controlled-release matrix excipient.

The authors studied the behavior of anhydrous lactose and the combination of anhydrous lactose and the combination of anhydrous lactose with microcrystalline cellulose on a pilot-scale roller compactor.

The authors examine the use of a hypromellose-based product as an excipient in a controlled release formulation using direct-compression tableting.
