Summary of "Glass Transition Dynamics and Physical Stability of Amorphous Griseofulvin in Binary Mixtures with Low Tg excipients."

Amorphization of drug formulations containing active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and excipients has been proven to be an effective strategy to improve their poor aqueous solubility. The excipients can also impact on the physical stability of the prepared amorphous forms. Generally, researchers are more apt to select excipients that have high value of the glass transition temperature Tg because of the antiplasticization effect of the additives on APIs. In this article, we studied the glass transition dynamics as well as crystallization behavior in binary blends composed of griseofulvin (GSF) and two low - Tg additives, octaacetylmaltose (acMAL) and polyvinyl acetate (PVAc), with particular focus on the plasticization effect. Effectively suppressed crystallization of GSF is observed in both systems when higher excipient contents are used. Our finding aims to encourage the use of specifically developed protocols, in which suitable plasticizers are used as excipients for stabilizing the amorphous state of a drug.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An antifungal antibiotic. Griseofulvin may be given by mouth in the treatment of tinea infections.

Fluoride-releasing restorative materials made by the sintering of metal (usually silver) particles to glass ionomer powder. Glass ionomers are fluoride-releasing cements that are not very durable. Sintering of the metal particles is a means of improving those physical properties that will make the glass ionomer cement more durable.

Hard, amorphous, brittle, inorganic, usually transparent, polymerous silicate of basic oxides, usually potassium or sodium. It is used in the form of hard sheets, vessels, tubing, fibers, ceramics, beads, etc.

The rate dynamics in chemical or physical systems.

Composite materials composed of an ion-leachable glass embedded in a polymeric matrix. They differ from GLASS IONOMER CEMENTS in that partially silanized glass particles are used to provide a direct bond to the resin matrix and the matrix is primarily formed by a light-activated, radical polymerization reaction.
