Material considerations for fused-filament fabrication of solid dosage forms.
Material choice is a fundamental consideration when it comes to designing a solid dosage form. The matrix material will ultimately determine the rate of drug release since the physical properties (solubility, viscosity, ...
Characteristics of the treated calcium carbonate particles with stearic acid using different treating methods.
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is often treated with stearic acid (SA) to decrease its polarity. However, the method of application of the SA treatments has a strong influence on their interface structure and distribution. ...
Extruded monofilament and multifilament thermoplastic stitching yarns.
Carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites offer significant improvement in overall material strength to weight, when compared with metals traditionally used in engineering. As a result, they are replacing metals where ...
Preparation of biodegradable poltyethylene glycol dimethacrylate hydrogels via thiol-ene chemistry.
Through the control of the molecular weight, water content and monomer concentration, polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate (PEGDMA) based hydrogels have been adapted for numerous applications, including as structural scaffolds, ...
Vaginal drug delivery for the localised treatment of cervical cancer.
Cervical cancer is usually treated by surgery, with the more advanced cancers requiring adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The location of the cervix makes it easily accessible through the vagina for the localised ...
The production of solid dosage forms from non-degradable polymers.
(Bentham Science, 2015)
Non-degradable polymers have an important function in medicine. Solid dosage forms for longer term implantation require to be constructed from materials that will not degrade or erode over time and also offer the utmost ...
