FORMULATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF FAST DISSOLVING TABLETS OF OLANZAPINE USING VACUUM DRYING TECHNIQUE BY 22 FACTORIAL DESIGN

The purpose of this research was to develop fast dissolving tablets of olanzapine and to optimize the processing variables. Tablets containing olanzapine, camphor, crosscarmellose, and directly compressible lactose were prepared by direct compression technique. The tablets were compressed and later exposed to vacuum. Sublimation of camphor from tablets resulted in superior fast dissolving tablets....

AN APPROACH FOR IMPROVEMENT OF THE WATER SOLUBILITY OF GLICLAZIDE IN SOLID DISPERSION WITH PEG 4000

Gliclazide is a second-generation hypoglycaemic sulfonylurea that is useful in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. It shows low aqueous solubility and dissolution rate and often shows low and irregular bioavailability after oral administration. This paper describes an approach to improve the Solubility of gliclazide by using solid dispersions (SDs) in polyethylene glycol 4000 (PEG 4000). So...
