  1. Methyl-Beta-cyclodextrins: the role of number and types of substituents in solubilizing power.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 103(5):1443 (2014) PMID 24590624

    We compared various methylated β-CDs concerning their structure characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, composition analyzed by HPLC and solubilizing capability by using model compounds such as cholesterol, fatty acids, furosemide, tamoxifen, and amiodarone. All the commercially av...
  2. Oil-in-Oil-Emulsions with Enhanced Substantivity for the Treatment of Chronic Skin Diseases.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 103(5):1515 (2014) PMID 24634106

    We therefore developed oil-in-oil-emulsions that deliver the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) to the skin over a prolonged period of time. In this study, we compare the permeation of the API from a conventional formulation to its permeation from an oil-in-oil-emulsion under infinite and finite...
  3. Pretreatment with skin permeability enhancers: importance of duration and composition on the delivery of diclofenac sodium.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 103(5):1497 (2014) PMID 24644068

    The use of chemical penetration enhancers (CPEs) is one of the most common approaches to improve the dermal and transdermal delivery of drugs. However, often, incorporation of CPEs in the formulation poses compatibility and stability challenges. Moreover, incorporation of enhancers in the formulatio...
  4. Toward an improved understanding of the precipitation behavior of weakly basic drugs from oral lipid-based formulations.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 103(4):1194 (2014) PMID 24515977

    These results suggested that in vitro conditions (dispersive versus digestive) largely influenced the solid-state properties of precipitating weak bases. Solid-state characterization of precipitated drugs under different experimental conditions should be routinely performed in formulation screening...
  5. Overcoming Multidrug Resistance in 2D and 3D Culture Models by Controlled Drug Chitosan-Graft Poly(Caprolactone)-Based Nanoparticles.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 103(4):1064 (2014) PMID 24523221

    The principal limitations of chemotherapy are dose-limiting systemic toxicity and the development of multidrug-resistant phenotypes. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficiency of a new sustained drug delivery system based on chitosan and ε-caprolactone to overcome multidrug resistance i...
  6. Temperature-ramped studies on the aggregation, unfolding, and interaction of a therapeutic monoclonal antibody.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 103(2):445 (2014) PMID 24382634

    Investigations on thermal behavior are essential during the development of therapeutic proteins. Understanding the link between thermal unfolding and aggregation might help to minimize conformational and colloidal instabilities. In this study, a therapeutic monoclonal antibody and its Fab and Fc fra...
  7. Nose-to-Brain Delivery: Evaluation of Polymeric Nanoparticles on Olfactory Ensheathing Cells Uptake.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 103(2):628 (2014) PMID 24395679

    We then correlated obtained biological data to zeta potential measurements of cells treated with NPs. Rodhamine-loaded NPs were used to study the uptake of OECs carried out by confocal microscopy at different times (1, 2, and 4 h). Our results showed that uptake of rodhamine-NPs by OECs was time dep...
  8. Determination of the optimal cell-penetrating peptide sequence for intestinal insulin delivery based on molecular orbital analysis with self...

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 102(2):469 (2013) PMID 23160942

    We sought to determine the CPP that most effectively enhanced intestinal insulin absorption. An in situ loop absorption study using 26 penetratin analogues suggested that the chain length, hydrophobicity, and amphipathicity of the CPPs, as well as their basicity, contribute to their absorption-enhan...
  9. Effects of submicron particles on formation of micron-sized particles during long-term storage of an interferon-beta-1a solution.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 102(2):347 (2013) PMID 23233283

    We present evidence that homogeneous submicron particles can influence the growth rate of larger particles upon long-term storage in a temperature-dependent manner. Interferon-beta-1a was thermally stressed at 50°C for 6 h and characterized using nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA), microflow digi...
  10. Solubility prediction of drugs in mixed solvents using partial solubility parameters

    Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 100(10):4368 (2011) PMID 21630276

    Solubility of drugs in binary and ternary solvent mixtures composed of water and pharmaceutical cosolvents at different temperatures were predicted using the Jouyban-Acree model and a combination of partial solubility parameters as interaction descriptors in the solution. The general...
