Abstract  

The effect of a hydrophilic polymer, hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose K4M, on the complexation of diclofenac sodium with b- and hydroxypropyl-b-cyclodextrins has been studied. Multicomponent systems were prepared with the drug, both cyclodextrin and the polymer. Phase solubility diagrams revealed the positive effect of the polymer on the complexation of the drug but this effect was found after autoclaving the solutions. Solid inclusion complexes were prepared by freeze-drying and characterized by thermal analysis (DSC) and X-ray diffractometry. In solid state, binary inclusion complexes enhance the dissolution behaviour of diclofenac but, from the b-cyclodextrin multicomponent complex, the polymer controls the release of the drug. In the case of hydroxy- propyl-b-cyclodextrin multicomponent system, the solubility of the drugs increases significantly compared with the binary complex.

Abstract  

The effect of cyclodextrin complexation of sulphamethizole (SM) was studied. Two systems were prepared with two cyclodextrin derivatives, β-cyclodextrin (BCD) and hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HPBCD): binary complexes and multicomponent systems (cyclodextrins and a hydroxylpropylmethyl cellulose K4M). Inclusion complexes were prepared by freeze-drying and characterized by thermal analysis (DSC) and X-ray diffractometry. The presence of the polymer in the solution increases the effect of cyclodextrins – specially BCD – on the solubility of SM. In solid state, binary inclusion complexes enhance the dissolution behaviour of SM but, from the multi-component complexes, the polymer controls the release of the drug.

Abstract  

The interactions between Carbopol and β-cyclodextrin (BCD) or hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HPBCD) were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and FTIR spectroscopy. Aqueous solutions of both components were desiccated by freeze-drying or heating in an oven (films) at various temperatures. The use of different drying procedures allowed their influence on the interactions to be studied. The evolution of the Carbopol glass-transition was also evaluated by DSC using first heating runs up to different temperatures. Disappearance of the Carbopol glass-transition was observed in the freeze-dried systems prepared with either of the cyclodextrins and in the films that contained HPBCD. The changes in the FTIR band of Carbopol at 1700 cm-1 confirmed the existence of interactions with both cyclodextrins, especially with HPBCD. This information may be useful for optimising the solubilizing capacity and controlled release performance of aqueous Carbopol-cyclodextrin systems.

Abstract

Although not being the ideal drug due to its low solubility and high toxicity, the benznidazole is the drug currently chosen for Chagas disease treatment. The deep knowledge about the characteristics of the drug in addition to the knowledge of more effective vectorization techniques of drugs in pharmaceutical forms allows a faster and cheaper development of a new therapeutic alternative in comparison to the introduction of a new molecule in the treatment. The aim of this study is the characterization of inclusion complexes Benznidazole and cyclodextrins in solid state. The interactions between Benznidazole (BNZ) and β-cyclodextrins (β-CD) modified: randomly methylated β-CD (RMβCD) and sulfobutylether β-CD (SBβCD) were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy, RAMAN, and scanning electron microscopy. The preparation of solid-state binary systems by different techniques, namely, kneading, evaporated, and freeze-drying. The results suggest the formation of inclusion complexes of the drug with both CDs types in solid state by the techniques which were used, based on physicochemical data of interaction compared to the drug or the CDs/drug physical mixture. Thus, the preparation technique played an important role in the BNZ and modified CDs.
