Solid Dispersions of mefenamic acid (MA), with a water soluble polymer (PVP) and a super disintegrant namely, crospovidone (CP), were prepared by common solvent and solvent evaporation methods employing methanol as solvent. Solid Dispersions prepared were evaluated for dissolution rate and dissolution efficiency in comparison to the corresponding pure drug mefenamic acid. Solid dispersions of mefenamic acid showed a marked enhancement in dissolution rate and dissolution efficiency. The order of increasing dissolution rate was observed with increase in crospovidone ratio. At 1:4 ratio of mefenamic acid-CP a 2.26 fold increase in the dissolution rate of mefenamic acid was observed with mefenamic acid-CP (1:4) solid dispersion. The solid dispersions in combined carriers gave much higher rates of dissolution than super disintegrants alone. MACP- PVP solid dispersion gave a 3.47 fold increase in the dissolution rate of mefenamic acid. Superdisintegrants alone or in combination with PVP could be used to enhance the dissolution rate of poorly soluble drug mefenamic acid.

The object of this article is to investigate enhancement of the dissolution rate of Mefenamic acid (MA) using solid dispersion method. A series of solid dispersions of the drug MA using poly ethylene glycol 6000 (PEG 6000), poly vinyl pyrrolidone K-30 (PVP K-30), hydroxyl propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) and micro crystalline cellulose (MCC) as carriers were prepared following the kneading and solvent evaporation methods. Dissolution studies using the USP XIV apparatus were performed for solid dispersions of MA. The FTIR spectra of samples were taken on the FTIR spectrophotometer using the KBr disk to identify the physicochemical interaction between drug and carrier, hence its effect on dissolution. IR spectroscopy showed no change in the structure of MA. Powder x-ray diffractometry was carried out to find out the changes in crystalline nature of the MA. The samples were analyzed by DSC using a Mettler Toledo S R System. Solid dispersions at 2:2:6 ratio of MA: HPMC: MCC, a 6.94 fold increase in the dissolution rate of MA was observed. Solid dispersions, prepared using HPMC showed greater improvement in dissolution profile of MA prepared by solvent evaporation technique. Thus, the solid dispersion technique can be successfully used for improvement of dissolution rate of MA.

The present study aimed at preparing fast dissolving oral films of zolmitriptan as a model drug which is used for the migraine treatment. Fast dissolving dosage forms have acquired great importance in pharmaceutical industry because of their unique properties. In the present research work various trials were carried out using different grades of HPMC E3, E6, and E15, maltodextrin DE6 and other polymers by solvent casting method. The prepared films were evaluated for film thickness, folding endurance, surface pH, morphological properties, %drug content and content uniformity, tensile strength, percent elongation, in vitro disintegration time and in vitro dissolution studies. The optimized formulation F23 prepared using HPMC E15 showed minimum disintegration time (10 sec), highest dissolution rate i.e. 99% of drug within 8 min and satisfactory physicochemical properties. The optimized film was evaluated for its bioavailability compared with pure drug as reference standard. Statistical analysis revealed that no significant difference between the bioavailability parameters of the film and the reference standard indicated that they exhibited comparable plasma level-time profiles. These findings suggest that the fast dissolving film containing zolmitriptan is considered to be potentially useful for the treatment of migraine where quick onset of action is desirable.

β-Cyclodextrin (β-CD) and HP-β-Cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD) inclusion complexes of piroxicam (PRX) exhibited higher dissolution rates and dissolution efficiency values than the corresponding un-complexed drug. The feasibility of formulating the β-cyclodextrin and HP-β-cyclodextrin complexes of piroxicam (1:3) into tablet dosage forms is evaluated. Solid inclusion complexes of piroxicam prepared by kneading method were formulated into tablets by wet granulation and direct compression methods. All the tablets formulated employing β-cyclodextrin and HP-β-cyclodextrin complexes of piroxicam gave rapid and higher dissolution rates of when compared to that of piroxicam plain tablets. All the prepared tablets fulfilled the official (I.P.) disintegration time specification of uncoated tablets. Overall, tablets prepared by direct compression method disintegrate rapidly when compared to those prepared by wet granulation method. Analysis of dissolution data as per zero-order and first - order kinetic models indicated that the dissolution of piroxicam from all the tablets followed first-order kinetics. In both direct compression and wet granulation methods, tablets formulated employing cyclodextrin complexes (PRXT2, PRXT3, PRXT5, PRXT6) gave higher rates of dissolution (K1) and dissolution efficiency (DE30) values when compared to the corresponding tablets formulated with piroxicam as such (PRXT1, PRXT4). Among all the piroxicam tablets formulated, formulation PRXT2, which is based on PRX- βCD (1:3) kneaded complex, gave highest dissolution. A 17.0 fold increase in the dissolution rate of piroxicam was observed with PRXT2 when compared to its plain tablets (PRXT1).
