In existing processes, the extraction of steviol glycosides from stevia leaves involves many process steps often including extraction by organic solvents. The purpose of the present study was to develop a process for the effective extraction of steviol glycosides, which can provide a concentrated juice exhibiting a high level of recovery with regard to the target compounds, rebaudioside A and stevioside. Pressurized Hot Water Extraction (PHWE) was first optimized with Response Surface Methodology in terms of maximized rebaudioside-A yield and minimized colour components. PHWE was then combined with pressing in a wine-press, resulting higher efficiency for extracting both steviol glycosides in comparison to the reported methods in the literature. Finally, spray drying was applied for both product stabilization and removal of contaminants.

Abstract  

The present investigation was carried out to screen compatibility of some diluents with pefloxacin mesilate using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), isothermal stability studies, along with stability studies in liquid state and to assign relative ranking to diluents. Compatibility was predicted with MCC101, MCC102, DCP anhydrous, Emcompress, while melting endotherm of drug was lost in admixtures of dextrose anhydrous, Pearlitol, Lactopress spray dried, Lactochem fine powder and Lycatab indicating possibility of interaction. Enthalpy changes were used for relative ranking of diluents.

Solid inclusion complexes of TolperisoneHCl with five various cyclodextrins were prepared by kneading and spray drying. The complex formation between the drug and the cyclodextrins were proven using thermoanalytical methods, X-ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy. The results of the solid state investigations were supported by the liquid phase investigations, such solubility and parition constant measurements and stability constant determination. Among all cyclodextrins used the β- and γ-CD-s were found to be the best complexing agents.

Abstract  

γ-Cyclodextrin and dimethyl-β-cyclodextrin were used as solubilizing agents for a very poorly water-soluble drug, an imidazole derivative antifungal agent, clotrimazole; with the aim of improving the physicochemical properties of the drug. Solid products were prepared by physical mixing, kneading, precipitation and spray-drying methods in 1:1 and 1:2 drug:cyclodextrin molar ratios. Drug interactions were studied by thermoanalytical methods such as DSC, DTA, TG and DTG, X-ray diffractometry and Fourier transformation-infrared spectroscopy. The results demonstrated the formation of inclusion complexes in some products.

Summary Inclusion complexation between dimethyl-β-cyclodextrin and a very poorly water-soluble serum lipid-regulating agent, gemfibrozil, was studied. Products were prepared by several methods (physical mixing, kneading, spray-drying and ultrasonic treatment) in four different molecular ratios (2:1, 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3). The possibility of complex formation between the drug and the host molecule was studied by thermal analysis. Supplementary techniques, such as Fourier transformation-infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffractometry, were also applied to interpret the results of thermal study of the products.

Abstract  

Inclusion complexation between cyclodextrin derivatives (hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin and methyl-β-cyclodextrin) and a very poorly water-soluble antifungal agent, ketoconazole, was studied. Solid products were prepared by physical mixing, kneading and spray-drying methods in four molecular ratios: 2:1, 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3. The possibility of complex formation between the drug and the cyclodextrins was studied by thermal analysis. Supplementary techniques, such as X-ray diffractometry and Fourier transformation-infrared spectroscopy, were also applied to interpret the results of the thermal study of the products.

This study aimed to evaluate the coating effect of methacrylic acid copolymers (MAc) on alginate beads, with respect to protection, survivability, and in vitro release of lactobacilli cells under simulated gut conditions, and to evaluate the effect of oven drying and fluidized bed-spraying as a mean to dry and coat alginate beads with MAc. MAc-coated beads exhibited protective effects for lactobacilli cells against low acidic environment providing higher survivability (71.82–96.11%) compared to uncoated beads (28.67–61.68%), and also higher cell release under sequential gut conditions (P<0.05). Lactobacillus casei BT 1268 showed a high cell release and was thus selected for further analysis using spray coating-drying via fluidized bed. Scanning electron microscopy revealed that fluidized bed-spray drying produced beads with irregular shapes but consistent coating and with lactobacilli cells clearly embedded within the inner matrix. Oven dried and fluidized bed-spray dried MAc-coated beads of L. casei BT 1268 also showed similar cell release, indicating the possible use of fluidized bed-spray as a more economical and less time consuming method for the protection and maintenance of cell viability.
