Title: Influence of Drug Solubility and Polymers Supply Source on the Physical Performance of Matrix Tablets
Author: MUSTAFA, MUSTAFA E.; Nur, Abubakr O.; OSMAN, ZUHEIR A.; AHMED, SARA A.
Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study is to explore the possible effects of drug solubility and commercial supply sources of HPMC and PVP on physical properties of matrix tablets. Methods: Two different supply sources (A and B) for Hydroxy Propyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) as matrix forming polymer and Polyvinyl Pyrrilidone (PVP) as matrix supportive polymer were used with either Chlorphenaramine maleate (CPM), as a water soluble drug or Atenolol (ATN), as a water insoluble drug, to produce a series of matrix formulations using direct compression according to a 23 Results: Matrix hardness and friability properties demonstrated to be influenced by PVP supply source as an individual factor alone or in combination with drug solubility factor, moreover, both properties were found to be less affected by drug solubility and HPMC supply source, as individual factors. Compared to other factors, drug solubility was found to have a substantial influence on drug dissolution efficiency (DE) and diffusion exponent of the drug release (n) of different matrices. full factorial design. Matrices were then qualified for friability, hardness, and drug release attributes. Conclusion: Variation in commercial PVP supply source and drug solubility could possibly result in matrices with different physical performance.
