    ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to develop the dextromethorphan hydrobromide sustained-release (DMB-SR) tablets using floating technique to prolong the gastric residence time and compared their pharmacokinetic behavior with conventional sustained release tablets. DMB-SR floating tablets were prepared employing hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) as hydrophilic gel material, sodium bicarbonate as gas-generating agent and hexadecanol as floating assistant agent. An orthogonal experiment design method was used to select the optimized formulation. The floating tablets were evaluated for uniformity of weight, hardness, friability, drug content, floating characteristics, in vitro release and in vivo bioavailability. The optimized tablets were prepared with HPMC K4M 25 mg, sodium bicarbonate 20 mg and hexadecanol 18 mg. The prepared tablets could float within 3 min and maintain for more than 24 h. The data of physical parameters were all lie within the limits. Drug release at 12 h was more than 85%. The comparative pharmacokinetic study was performed by administration of the DMB-SR floating tablets and conventional DMB-SR tablets. The area under curve of plasma concentration-time (AUC) of floating tablets was slightly higher than that of reference tablets, T(max) was prolonged apparently. The results showed the floating tablets are a feasible approach for the sustained-release preparation of drugs, which have limited absorption sites in the stomach.

    ABSTRACT: The object of this study was to prepare rosiglitazone maleate (RM) sustained-release floating microspheres and investigate their pharmacokinetics. RM microspheres were prepared with ethyl cellulose (EC) and octadecyl alcohol as the carrier materials by an emulsion-solvent diffusion method, and the properties of morphology in vitro floating capability, drug loading (DL), entrapment efficiency (EE), in vitro release and in vivo pharmacokinetics were investigated. The prepared microspheres had a completely spherical shape. The percentage of microspheres floating after 12 h was (91.45 +/- 1.62)%, and the DL and EE were (9.31 +/- 0.31)% and (89.55 +/- 1.65)% respectively. Pharmacokinetic studies demonstrated that the RM floating microspheres were superior to commercial tablets in terms of the decrease in peak plasma concentration and maintenance of RM concentration in plasma. The area under the curve of plasma concentration-time (AUC) of the floating microspheres was equivalent to that of reference tablets. The results showed that floating microspheres are a feasible approach for the sustained-release preparation of drugs which have limited absorption sites in the upper small intestine.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) were successfully prepared by an ultrasonic and high-pressure homogenization method to improve the oral bioavailability of the poorly water-soluble drug cryptotanshinone (CTS). The particle size and distribution, drug loading capacity, drug entrapment efficiency, zeta potential, and long-term physical stability of the SLNs were characterized in detail. A pharmacokinetic study was conducted in rats after oral administration of CTS in different SLNs, and it was found that the relative bioavailability of CTS in the SLNs was significantly increased compared with that of a CTS-suspension. The incorporation of CTS in SLNs also markedly changes the metabolism behavior of CTS to tanshinone IIA. These results indicate that CTS absorption is enhanced significantly by employing SLN formulations, and SLNs represent a powerful approach for improving the oral absorption of poorly soluble drugs.

    ABSTRACT: Biomembrane-coated capillaries are prepared by coating different kinds of biomembranes including mice red cell membrane, human red cell membrane and S-180 cell membrane on the inner surface of the capillary, respectively. Effects of immobilized biomembrane amount, pH and biomembrane species on the interactions between drugs and biomembranes have been evaluated. The results showed that the chromatographic retention factor for each drug was essentially related to the amount of immobilized biomembrane, the pH and the type of biomembrane.
