Decrease in crystallinity amorhous material has high solubility due to disordered structure Reduction of drug particle size to molecular level (increased surface area of the drug) Reduced or absence of aggregation and agglomeration due to the presence of polymer Improved wettability due to intiminate contact with hydrophilic polymers 5 UCL SCHOOL OF PHARMACY BRUNSWICK SQUARE Processing methods Melting/fusion---HME Solvent --- Spray Drying

Stability issues amorphous solid dispersions Will recrystallise - amorphous materials undergo nucleation and growth Will relax amorphous materials are very dynamic and will undergo relaxation towards equilibrium state Tendency to absorb water All may cause phase separation!!! 8 UCL SCHOOL OF PHARMACY BRUNSWICK SQUARE Content Rationale of amorphous solid dispersion used for poorly water soluble drugs Stability issues with amorphous solid dispersions Analytical tools for monitoring phase separation

Aim: to investigate the stabilizing effect of zein on preventing moisture induced phase separation of amorphous dispersions prepared by spray drying. Zein: major storage protein of corn with a wide application in food industry and more recently in the pharmaceutical arena a versatile excipient due to its low toxicity, sustainable production source and biodegradable nature has been used to form hydrophobic coatings 17 UCL SCHOOL OF PHARMACY BRUNSWICK SQUARE Methods Preparation: Binary system: Paracetamol + Plasdone.

Fully amorphous BUT sensitive to water!!! 1% w/v total solids (30:70 w/w drug/polymer). Solvent: distilled water. Ternary system: Paracetamol + Plasdone + Zein. 1% w/v total solids (30:70:10 w/w drug/polymer/zein). Solvent 50:50 distilled water/ethanol. Storage condistion: 25C/53%RH over 3 months Characterization: MTDSC (Modulated Temperature Differential Scanning Calorimetry) TGA (Thermogravimetric Analysis) DVS (Dynamic Vapour Sorption) coupled with Microscope 18 UCL SCHOOL OF PHARMACY BRUNSWICK SQUARE
