The purpose of this study was to optimize hot melt extrusion(HME) preparation process and evaluate in vitro and in vivo for developing curcumin sustained-release solid dispersion, to explore the possibility of HME for one-step preparation of insoluble drug sustained-release solid dispersion. The effect of three process parameters- barrel temperature, screw speed and cooling rate - were systematically studied. Physical state of curcumin sustained-release solid dispersion was characterized by DSC, XRD, FTIR. It was found that curcumin - Eudragit RS/RL system exhibited a good miscibility. Curcumin in the solid dispersion existed in an amorphous state and had molecular interactions with carriers. Stability studies showed no apparent difference of physical state of solid dispersion after 6 months. The mechanism of the curcumin release in sustained-release solid dispersion was a diffusion and dissolution coexisting action. Pharmacokinetics study showed the relative bioavailability of the curcumin in sustained-release solid dispersion to curcumin were 223.44%. The curcumin sustained-release solid dispersion have been successfully prepared by HME, significantly extending the half-life, ensuring a stable and effective blood concentration, and improving the bioavailability of curcumin. In conclusion, HME can be used to prepared sustained-release solid dispersion of a poorly water-soluble drug as a promising method.

A yellow-orange dye obtained from tumeric, the powdered root of CURCUMA longa. It is used in the preparation of curcuma paper and the detection of boron. Curcumin appears to possess a spectrum of pharmacological properties, due primarily to its inhibitory effects on metabolic enzymes.
Small containers or pellets of a solid drug implanted in the body to achieve sustained release of the drug.
The method of measuring the dispersion of an optically active molecule to determine the relative magnitude of right- or left-handed components and sometimes structural features of the molecule.
Medicated dosage forms that are designed to be inserted into the rectal, vaginal, or urethral orifice of the body for absorption. Generally, the active ingredients are packaged in dosage forms containing fatty bases such as cocoa butter, hydrogenated oil, or glycerogelatin that are solid at room temperature but melt or dissolve at body temperature.
Any liquid or solid preparation made specifically for the growth, storage, or transport of microorganisms or other types of cells. The variety of media that exist allow for the culturing of specific microorganisms and cell types, such as differential media, selective media, test media, and defined media. Solid media consist of liquid media that have been solidified with an agent such as AGAR or GELATIN.
