ABSTRACT: The main objectives of the present study were to design, optimization and evaluation of buccal drug delivery system of propranolol for hypertension treatment. Propranolol is non-selective β-adrenergic blockers. It shows first-pass metabolism so its bioavailability is decreased and its absolute bioavailability is only about 26%. The buccal tablets of propranolol formulated, by using different mucoadhesive polymers such as sodium crosscarmilose sodium, PVP K30, and HPMC K15M. F8 was containing 18.18% PVPK30, 10.90% HPMC K15M showed desired drug release within 6 h to above batches. The dissolution profile of formulated batch F1 to F8 at the end of 6 h was found in the range of 83.03 to 94.69% in phosphate buffer pH 6.8. From the results, it was found that formulation F8 was shown most similar dissolution profile because the similarity value was found to be above 90%. The swelling index was found higher in formulation F9 80.15% swelling observed because of higher concentration of PVP K30 and HPMC K15M. The results indicate that out of two bioadhesive polymers PVP k 30 along with HPMC K15M in different concentration with fraction batches code F1 to F9 having PVP K30 have shown more bioadhesive strength than HPMC K15M. Statistical optimization of propranolol tablet was done by design expert software, version 220.127.116.11. No significant changes were observed in the physical appearance, mucoadhesive strength and drug content of the formulations kept both at room temperature (RT) and accelerated conditions (45 °C, 75% RH) for 1 month.

INTRODUCTION: Over the last few decades’ research, researchers are trying to deliver drugs via transmucosal and transdermal routes as an alternative to parenteral rout 1. By these formulations, drugs can be applied onto the body with low vascularisation when targeting local administration, or with high vascularisation, when systemic delivery is required; in against to the oral formulations, whose pharmacological effects depends upon the absorption and systemic distribution 2.
The main beneficiary effect of buccal drug delivery systems is increased bioavailability, easy release pattern, drug targeting, increased residence time in the buccal mucosa, and decreased prime adverse effects 3. The oral mucosa provides unique environment for delivery of drugs.
Drugs which show the effect of first-pass metabolism and sensitive to acid hydrolysis in stomach are good candidate for oral mucosal delivery because high blood supply in that region. This type of drug delivery system includes delivery of drugs through buccal mucosa to systemic circulation 4, 5. For the development of these type buccal drug delivery formulations, mucoadhesion of the formulation is a prime element. The mucin layer of biological membrane act as support system for binding of materials, this phenomenon is known as “mucoadhesion” 6. For targeting systemic circulation via oral mucosa, many types’ mucoadhesive polymers are utilized in buccal drug delivery formulations 7. There is very challenging task for buccal tablets to maintain their shape, solidarity, and attitude during the application. Precise dosing control and visually seen during the treatment can be achieved by buccal tablets. Direct compression method for buccal tablets formulation can be used because it is very easy method, economically good and less time consuming 8.
Propranolol is generally used to treat hypertension and migraine. It is non-selective β-adrenergic blockers. It shows first-pass metabolism so its bioavailability is decreased and its absolute bioavailability is only about 26%. Buccal tablets of propranolol may be best option to treat hypertension as well as migraine 9. For designing traditional formulation, there are single variable changes required every time and perpetuate other factors unchanged. Since this consideration is time taking and needs to conduct a large number of experiments to determine optimum conditions. So we can use statistical optimization techniques to define key parameters with minimum number of trials. This whole process is known as design of experiments (DoEs) 10. Response surface methodology (RSM) is widely used for the designing and optimization of formulations. This statistical method shows the interaction between predefined factors and their effects on required responses that are very important to final formulation 11, 12. Buccal drug delivery technology has great importance but quite complex process, the present study aims to design, evaluate and optimize, from a sequential review with meta-analysis, the evaluation of physicochemical property and advancement for this technology applied to the surface of the buccal mucosa.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
Materials: Propranolol as a gift sample was provided by Cadila healthcare Ltd., Ahmadabad, Gujarat. All other polymers and chemicals were analytical grade and provided by Shri Ram College of pharmacy, Banmore, Morena.
Compatibility Analysis (FTIR): The Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy was performed to check compatibility between drug and additives. In this method we used a moisture-free powder sample of 1:1 ratio of Propranolol with excipients and spectra was recorded on IR spectrophotometer by the using of potassium bromide (KBr) pellet method 13.
Calibration Curve Preparation for Propranolol: From the stock solution aliquot of 0.4, 0.8, 1.2, 1.6 and 2.0 ml was taken and diluted up to 10 ml with phosphate buffer ph 6.8 to get 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20 µg/ml concentration solution. The absorbance of each solution was measured at maximum wavelength (λmax) of 289 nm against of phosphate buffer ph 6.8. The λmax of propranolol was performed in triplicate and mean absorbance was considered.
Dose Calculation: The pharmacokinetic parameters of propranolol were utilized for the calculation of theoretical drug release profile for the developed dosage form. The loading dose and maintenance dose of propranolol were calculated using formula:
Loading dose (X0L) = (Css × Vd) / (S × F)
Maintenance dose (X0M) = (Css × CL) / F
Where Css is steady-state plasma concentration, Vd is volume of distribution, CL is the clearance, S is a salt fraction and F is fraction of bioavailability.
From the above equation:-
Loading dose and maintenance dose was found 22.7 mg and 7.7 mg respectively. The amount of drug should be released within one hour equivalent to X0L and X0M. The maintenance dose is depending on the elimination rate while the loading dose depends on Css.
Using the value of X0L and X0M for propranolol calculated dissolution profile at each time interval to predict the similarity in drug release profile from each developed formulation with theoretically developed release profile.
Development and Optimization of Buccal Formulations by using Experimental Design:
Formulation of Buccal Tablets of Propranolol by combining different Polymer Concentration: Direct compression method was used for the preparation of buccal tablets. PVP K30, HPMC K15M were used as a mucoadhesive polymer. 60# sieve was used for sieving all the ingredients individually. Drug, polymers and other additives were mixed uniformly with gentle trituration using mortar and pestle to get a uniform mixture.
Finally, magnesium stearate, talc was added and mixed well to provide lubricant effect. The tablets were compressed using 6 mm punch on the eight-station rotary punching machine. And total tablet weight was 110 mg.
Optimization of Buccal Tablets Formulations by using Experimental Design: It is an essential step to develop an acceptable pharmaceutical formulation in shortest possible time using minimum number of man-power and raw materials. Although, it is difficult to develop an ideal formulation using these classical techniques since the joint effects of independent variable are not considered. A statistical model was used to evaluate, the response of polynomial and interactive.
The number experiments required for designing these studies, which is dependent on the number of independent variables selected. The response (Y1) is measured for each trial.
Y= b0 + b1X1+b2 X2+b12 X1 X2+b11 X12+b22 X22
Where Y is dependent variables, b0 is the arithmetic mean response of the nine runs, b1 is the estimated coefficient for the factor X1, and b2 is the estimated coefficient for the factor X2.
The main effect (X1 and X2) represents the average result of changing one factor at a time from its low to high value.
A 32 randomized full factorial design method was used in this study. In present design- two factors are selected for evaluation, each at three levels, and experimental work was carried out at all nine possible combinations. The design layout detail and coded value of independent variables are shown below in Table 1. The selected factors were based on preliminary study. The amount of PVP K30 (X1) and the amount of HPMC K 15M (X2) were studied as an independent variable.
ANOVA provision in the Microsoft software was used for the establishment of statistical polynomials validity. Level of significance was considered at p< 0.05. For the comparison of several statistical parameters, best fitting mathematical model was selected- including the coefficient of variation (CV), the multiple correlation coefficient (R2), the adjusted multiple correlation coefficient (adjusted R2), and the predicted residual error sum of square (PRESS), provided by the software.
PRESS indicates how well the model fits the data, and for the chosen model, it should be small relative to the other models under consideration. The significant approach was used to produce the optimum setting for the formulation.

Physical Appearance Study: It includes test the state, colour, odour, taste and melting point of propranolol drug and compare with pharmacopeia limit of pure propranolol drug.
Angle of Repose: The angle of repose of powder blend was determined by the funnel method. The accurate weight powder blend was taken in the funnel. The height of the funnel was adjusted in such a way the tip of the funnel just touched the apex of the powder blend. The powder blend was allowed to flow through the funnel freely on the surfaces. The diameter of the powder cone was measured and angle of repose was calculated using following equation.
Tan ɵ = h/r
Where h and r are the height and radius of the powder cone respectively.
Bulk Density: The granules fill in measuring cylinder called a bulk volume of powder and measure mass. Bulk density is ratio of mass of powder of bulk volume of powder. It is measure used to describe a packing of powder. The equation for determine bulk density is
ρb = m/vb
Where, ρb = Bulk density (gm/ml), m = Mass of powder (gm) and vb = Volume of powder (ml)
Tapped Density: It is the ratio of total mass of powder to the tapped volume of powder. Tapped density was determined by the tapped density tester by taking the granules in a measuring cylinder and measure the volume of tapped after 100 tapings and weight of the mass. The equation for determining tapped density is
ρt = m/vt
Where, ρt = Tapped density (gm/ml), m = Mass of powder (gm), vt = Tapped volume
Compressibility Index: The compressibility index of the powder blend was determined by Carr’s compressibility index. It is a simple test to evaluate the ρb and ρt of a powder and the rate at which it packed down. The formula for Carr’s index is as below:
Carr’s compressibility index (%) = (ρt - ρb) / ρt × 100
Where, ρb = Bulk density, ρt = Tapped density
Hausner’s Ratio: It is the ratio of bulk volume to tapped volume or tapped density to bulk density. It is a measure used to describe the compressibility of granules.
Hausner’s ratio = ρt / ρb
Where, ρb = Bulk density, ρt = Tapped density
Post-Compressional Evaluation Parameters:
Hardness Test: The tablet hardness was determined by using Pfizer and Monsanto Hardness tester. It is expressed in kg/cm3. Three tablets are randomly picked as a sample for each formulation and the average and standard deviation were calculated.
Thickness: Vernier calipers were used for determination of the thickness of each formulation. From each formulation, three tablets were taken as sample and average values were calculated.
Friability: Initially twenty tablets were weighed and placed in the Roche friabilator. The tablets were explored for rolling and allowed for shocks, resulting from free falls within the apparatus. After 100 revolutions the tablets were de-dusted and weighted again. The friability was determined as the percentages loss in weight of the tablets
% Friability = Winitial - Wfinal / Winitial × 100
% Friability of tablets less than 1 % is considered as pass 14.
Weight Variation: This test was performed as per the procedure of IP/BP. Twenty tablets were taken randomly as sample and weighed individually each tablet. The data of individual tablets weight were analyzed for sample mean and percent deviation.
TABLE 4: WEIGHT VARIATION ACCORDING TO IP/BP
|Average weight (mg)||Maximum % Deviation|
Assay: Three tablets were randomly selected from each formulation and crushed to a fine powder in a mortar with pestle. Weigh accurately equivalent to 6.25 mg of propranolol from fine powder then transferred in 100 ml volumetric flask, 100 ml of phosphate buffer pH 6.8 was added to dissolve and sonicated for few minutes. After sonication, insoluble matter was allowed to settle. The sonication was diluted to get concentration about 20 µg/ml propranolol in phosphate buffer pH 6.8. The resulting solution was filtered through Whatman filter paper.
The absorbance of final solution was measured in UV spectrophotometer at 289 nm. This procedure was repeated three times to get accuracy in the result.
In-vitro Dissolution Study: United States Pharmacopoeia type II apparatus was used for in-vitro dissolution study of the tablet for each formulation. The drug release study of tablets was performed by the rotating paddle method. Dissolution medium 900 ml of Phosphate buffer (pH 6.8) was placed in dissolution vessel. The release was evaluated at 37 ºC ± 0.5 ºC and rotational speed of paddle set on 50 rpm. Tablets were placed in each dissolution vessel. The 5 ml samples were withdrawn each time and time interval was one hour for 6 h. The withdrawn samples were filtered through Whatman filter paper and checked for drug content by UV Spectrophotometer.
The absorbance for each sample was recorded at 289 nm and the concentration of drug present was calculated using the calibration curve method for Propranolol. Then, the cumulative percentage amount of drug released at each time interval was calculated using the formula,
Cumulative amount of drug release = C × DF × DM
Where, C = Concentration of drug at each time interval (µg/ml), DF = Dilution factor is 1, DM = Dissolution medium (900 ml)
Drug Release Kinetics: Different type’s models were used for the determination of kinetics of drug release. For the determination of mechanism of drug release kinetics of mucoadhesive dosage form, the obtained data were fitted into zero-order, first-order, Higuchi, Korsmeyer-Peppas release model, and Hixson-Crowell equation 15.
Swelling Index: The phosphate buffer 6.8 pH was used to evaluate the swelling index of the buccal tablets. The initial weight of buccal tablet was determining (W1). The (25 ml) in a Petri-dish kept in an incubator at 37 ± 1 ºC, and tablet was checked at different time interval (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 h), and excess water was removed using filter paper without pressing and reweighted (W2). The swelling index was calculated using the formula,
Swelling index = (W2-W1) / W1 × 100
Where W1 is initial weight of tablet, W2 is final weight of tablet
Mucoadhesive Strength: The modified balance method was used for determination of ex-vivo mucoadhesive strength. Newly harvested sheep buccal mucosa was collected from a local butcher house and used within 2 h of slaughter. Then underlying fat and loose tissues were removed for separation of mucosal membrane. First of all, membrane was cleaned with distilled water and then with phosphate buffer pH 6.8 at 37 ºC 16.
A piece of buccal mucosa was tied to the glass, which was fixed on the plank, and the plank was assembled with little crown block placed in a right side balance pan. After wetting the sheep mucosa with distilled water, the tablet was kept in contact with the mucosa by applying the force for minute. After initial touch, the tablet was fringed by a thread which fastened a light plastic beaker through the crown block. Then, water was added into the beaker at a constant rate until the tablet and sheep mucosa were pulled apart by the gravity of water. The beaker filled with water was weighed and the minimum detachment force was calculated. The detachment force shows the mucoadhesive power of the buccal tablet in gm 17.
Stability Study: The aim of stability study is required for the collection of data on the quality of formulation or drug product which alters with time under the effect of different environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and light. Formulations were selected for stability on the basis of the in-vitro drug release profile. The formulation was subjected to accelerated stability studies i.e. room temperature, 40 ºC / 75% RH in alu/alu foil for 1 month in thermostated ovens. The sample (n=3) were tested for 0-30 days. Tablets were evaluated for the different physicochemical parameters i.e. in-vitro dissolution study.

The regression efficient were found by ANOVA. The values of coefficient were found to be significant for the particular response. The coefficient for both variables was found positive at low level and in combination. At high-level X1 variable found opposite effect. Both variables might be affecting SI significantly but the effect of X1 variable was more predominant than X2 variable. The positive values of both indicate that as concentration of polymer increases, swelling index increases. So, it was found that the response value was increased by increasing the level of both variables (X1 and X2)
