Mannitol and lactose are commonly used fillers in pharmaceutical tablets, available in several commercial grades that are produced using different manufacturing processes. These grades significantly differ in particulate and powder properties that impact tablet manufacturability. Choice of sub-optimum type or grade of excipient in tablet formulation can lead to manufacturing problems and difficulties, which are magnified during a continuous manufacturing process. Previous characterization of tableting performance of these materials was limited in scope and under conditions not always realistic to the commercial production of tablets. This work seeks to comprehensively characterize the compaction properties of 11 mannitol and 5 lactose grades using a compaction simulator at both slow and fast tableting speeds. These include tabletability, compressibility, tablet brittleness, die-wall stress transmission, and strain rate sensitivity. A chemometrical analysis of data, using the partial least square technique, was performed to construct a model to provide accurate prediction of tablet tensile strength for mannitol grades. Such knowledge facilitates the selection of suitable tablet filler to attain high quality tablet products.

Lactose, a disaccharide is a ubiquitous excipient in many pharmaceutical formulations which exists in two anomeric forms; either as α- or β-lactose. The anomers have different properties which can a...
Current calf milk replacer (CMR) compositions significantly differ from whole milk in their levels of energy, protein, and minerals. Energy source is one of the major differences, as CMR contains high...
Our recently reported phase III trial demonstrated that patients undergoing nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of ≥45 ml/min/1.73 m who received mann...
Although mannitol is widely used to facilitate brain retraction in cases of ruptured aneurysms, there is no consensus about the intraoperative administration of mannitol in the case of unruptured aneu...
The investigators' overall objective with this study is to determine performance characteristics of small intestine permeability measurement using 13C mannitol and 12C (regular) mannitol.
Mannitol is widely used in patients with elevated intracranial pressure. In neurosurgical field, especially in large size or with brain edema, it is necessary to decrease brain volume to f...

The condition resulting from the absence or deficiency of LACTASE in the MUCOSA cells of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, and the inability to break down LACTOSE in milk for ABSORPTION. Bacterial fermentation of the unabsorbed lactose leads to symptoms that range from a mild indigestion (DYSPEPSIA) to severe DIARRHEA. Lactose intolerance may be an inborn error or acquired.
