Introduction Pathological gambling is a behavioral addiction that is often accompanied by other disorders, such as anxious and depressive disorders, and drug and alcohol abuse ( Barnes, Welte, Tidwell, & Hoffman, 2015 ; el

Abstract  

The thermal decomposition of antituberculous drugs-ethambutol (base and dihydrochloride), isoniazid, ethionamid and pyrazinamid has been studied by DTA, TG and DTG techniques. General remarks have been made on their thermal destruction. The effect of sample size over the range 20–200 mg and heating rate over the range 3–15 deg·min−1 on the thermal degradation has also been investigated. Moreover, based on the Kissinger’s equation, the values of the kinetic parameters were determined.

Abstract  

The thermal decomposition of antituberculous, local anaesthetic and calcium salts of organic acids used as the drugs has been studied by differential thermal and thermogravimetric techniques. General characteristics of their thermal decomposition has been made. The effect of sample size over the range 20–200 mg and heating rate over the range 3–15 deg·min−1 on the thermal degradation has been investigated. The values of the kinetic parameters has been also determined.

Abstract  

The processes of production of drugs and dosage forms in the solid state often cause unwanted transformation of portions of the substances into amorphous state, with significant changes of properties such as stability and bio-availability. When this amorphous fraction is of the order of a few percent, it usually goes unnoticed, but it should be accurately determined within a quality control system. In this work, we consider a model drug, perphenazine, where partial amorphisation may be induced by standard mechanical treatments. We show that Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) leads to consistent estimations of the amorphous fractions induced by the treatment. Furthermore, DSC also yields the expected amounts of amorphous perphenazine when analysing known mixtures of perfectly crystalline samples (untreated) and partially amorphous samples (treated). We show that even amorphous fractions of the order of 1% are accurately estimated by our method.

Abstract  

DSC was used together with other methods of pharmaceutical analysis (spectrophotometry, thin-layer chromatography) to estimate the quality and standardization of two drugs—lipoic acid (polymerization upon melting, purity) and progesterone (melting temperature, polymorphism).

Abstract  

Chemical compatibility of two drugs, namely, etamsylate and fluconazole was studied with lactose as excipient, employing differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques. The DSC patterns recorded for the mixtures of both the drugs with the common excipient (lactose) indicated that fluconazole as well as etamsylate were incompatible with lactose at high temperatures. X-ray diffraction patterns recorded for pure drugs and lactose and the mixtures of individual drugs with lactose prepared at room temperature by intimate grinding of the components revealed incompatibility of both the drugs with lactose also at room temperature.
