Abstract
Abstract Imperialine, extracted from Bulbus Fritillariae Cirrhosae, is an efficient antitussive and expectorant medicine. However, its short half-life and stomach degradation limited imperialine from further clinical use. The current study was conducted to develop a sustained-release tablet for imperialine both to prolong absorption time and to improve the oral bioavailability of the drug. The tablets were prepared by a direct compression method formulated on optimized solid dispersion (SD) for imperialine based on polyvinyl caprolactam–polyvinyl acetate–polyethylene glycol graft copolymer (Soluplus®) with imperialine/Soluplus® ratio of 1:8 (w/w). In order to obtain the optimized formulation, factors that affected the drug release were investigated by in vitro dissolution studies in the media of pH 1.2, 5.8, 7.0 and 7.4. Powder X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscope confirmed that the imperialine in SD was amorphous instead of crystalline, and still stayed amorphous even after the direct compression. And besides, pharmacokinetic study in Beagle dogs was performed to inspect the in vivo sustained release. Plasma concentration-time curves and pharmacokinetic parameters were gained. As a result, the Cmax of imperialine was one-fold reduced and Tmax was two-fold prolonged, and the mean AUC0–24 was expressed as 89.581 ± 21.243 μg h/L, which showed that the oral bioavailability of imperialine was 2.46-fold improved. Moreover, the in vitro–in vivo correlation was recommended to carry out, demonstrating the percentages of drug release in vitro were well-correlated with the absorptive fraction in vivo with the correlation coefficients above 0.9900. By mathematically modeling and moment imaging of the drug release, Peppas equation was selected as the most fitted model for the sustained-release tablets with the diffusional coefficient in the range of 0.59–0.62, indicating the release of imperialine from the sustained-release tablets was an anomalous process involving polymer swelling, drug diffusion and matrix erosion.

Abstract Repaglinide (RG) is an efficient antihyperglycemic drug; however, due to its short half-life, patients are required to take the marketed products several times a day, which compromises the therapeutic effects. The present study was conducted to develop a hydrophilic sustained release matrix tablet for RG with the aims of prolonging its action time, reducing the required administration times and side effects and improving patient adherence. The matrix tablets were fabricated by a direct ...

Abstract A sensitive, selective, rapid liquid chromatography–electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometric method was developed and validated in rat plasma to quantify imperialine, a major active constituent extracted from Bulbus Fritillariae Cirrhosae . Before analysis, plasma samples were pre-treated using cost-effective protein precipitation in order to extract imperialine and the internal standard, carbamzepine. The two analytes were then separated on a Diamonsil ODS chromatography colum...

The two main purposes of this work were: (i) to critically consider the use of thermodynamic parameters of activation for elucidating the drug release mechanism from hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) matrices, and (ii) to examine the effect of neutral (pH 6) and acidic (pH 2) media on the release mechanism. For this, caffeine was chosen as model drug and various processes were investigated for the effect of temperature and pH: caffeine diffusion in solution and HPMC gels, and drug release fro...

Abstract As many new active pharmaceutical ingredients are poorly water soluble, solubility enhancers are one possibility to overcome the hurdles of drug dissolution and absorption in oral drug delivery. In the present work a novel solubility enhancing excipient (Soluplus®) was tested for its capability to improve intestinal drug absorption. BCS class II compounds danazol, fenofibrate and itraconazole were tested both in vivo in beagle dogs and in vitro in transport experiments across Caco-2 cel...

There is growing acceptance of traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs) as potential sources of clinical agents based on the demonstrated efficacies of numerous bioactive compounds first identified in TCM extracts, such as paclitaxel, camptothecin, and artemisinin. However, there are several challenges to achieving the full clinical potential of many TCMs, particularly the generally high hydrophobicity and low bioavailability. Recently, however, numerous studies have attempted to circumvent the limi...

Abstract Currently, most anti-cancer therapies are still haunted by serious and deleterious adverse effects. Here, we report a highly biocompatible tumor cell-targeting delivery systems utilizing exosome-like vesicles (ELVs) that delivers a low-toxicity anti-cancer agent imperialine against non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). First, we introduced a novel micelle-aided method to efficiently load imperialine into intact ELVs. Then, integrin α3β1-binding octapeptide cNGQGEQc was modified onto ELV p...

The use of amorphous solid dispersions (ASD) to overcome poor drug solubility has gained interest in the pharmaceutical industry over the past decade. ASDs are challenging to formulate because they are thermodynamically unstable, and the dispersed drugs tend to recrystallize. Until now, most research on ASDs has focused on immediate-release formulations, supersaturation, and stability; only a few studies have recently reported on the manufacturing of sustained-release ASDs. Sustained-release ASD...

Synthetic polymers have enabled amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) to emerge as an oral delivery strategy for overcoming poor drug solubility in aqueous environments. Modern ASD products noninvasively treat a range of chronic diseases (for example, hepatitis C, cystic fibrosis, and HIV). In such formulations, polymeric carriers generate and maintain drug supersaturation upon dissolution, increasing the apparent drug solubility to enhance gastrointestinal barrier absorption and oral bioavailabili...

Scopoletin is an active coumarin possessing a variety of pharmacological activities, including anti-hyperuricemic effect, but with poor solubility. To improve its oral bioavailability, we attempted to encapsulate scopoletin into Soluplus micelles (Soluplus-based scopoletin micelles, Sco-Ms) and evaluated the hypouricemic action of Sco-Ms. Sco-Ms were prepared using a thin-film hydration method. Sco-Ms displayed near spherical shapes with an average size of 59.4±2.4 nm (PDI=0.08±0.02). The encaps...
