The semi-permeable membrane permits water to enter from the patient’s stomach into the core tablet when the tablet is swallowed, thereby dissolving or suspending the drug.

The relative proportions of these retardants assure the measured release of the active ingredient. After enteral administration, gastric fluid dissolves the tablet surface and hydrates the hydrophilic polymer to produce a gel, the formation of which is controlled by higher aliphatic alcohols.

View large Download slide. The retardants control the rate of release of the active ingredient oxycodone, in the case of OxyContin from the tablet matrix [8]. Close mobile search navigation Article navigation. To prepare these systems, the drug is blended with the hydrophilic polymer, selectively hydrated with a polar solvent, and fixed with a higher aliphatic alcohol [10].

Of interest was the high degree of variability of peak drug concentration C max during coadministration. These in vitro dissolution studies show that exposure to alcohol does not increase the rate at which morphine is released from MSContin tablets or at which oxycodone is released from OxyContin.

As the pellets enter and move through the intestines, the pH of the GI environment continues to increase, and the methacrylic acid copolymer begins to dissolve as the PEG continues its dissolution. The hydrophobic content is used to slow the diffusion of drug into the aqueous phase, which limits diffusion into the GI tract and absorption into the body.


It has a plasma concentration-time curve that is relatively flat and smooth [14].

It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. Following capsule disintegration, the relatively small sized granules behave more like a liquid than larger solid particles, which may, on occasion, be retained in the stomach [2].

The SABER delivery system is a biodegradable drug delivery platform that can be formulated for parenteral or enteral routes of administration, which appears to be especially well suited for small-molecule and protein delivery. After administration and rapid dissolution of the hard gelatin capsule shell, the permeability of the ammonio-methacrylate copolymer coating allows GI fluid to enter the beads and solubilize the drug.

Therefore, these products should be swallowed whole i. Although all CR products may be taken without regard to meals, they are sensitive to alterations that destroy their modified-release mechanisms. The resulting pharmacokinetic models were then used to predict mean concentration vs time profiles for dosing of OxyContin q12h and immediate-release oxycodone q6h for 3.

After ingestion, the hard gelatin capsule shell quickly dissolves, releasing the drug-containing pellets. This thickening property of xanthan is made use of in other pharmaceutical products to prepare sugar-free syrups and results from a reversible dimerisation of xanthan molecules. Once produced, the beads are encapsulated into a inseet gelatin capsule. Plasma samples taken predose and at regular intervals up to 48 hours after dosing were assayed for hydromorphone concentrations; a mixed-effect anova was done on log-transformed data [33].

C max values increased after alcohol compared with no alcohol, with the increase slightly lower in the fed state. In solution, one xanthan molecule associates with a second molecule by hydrogen bonding to produce a helical structure.

As water is absorbed into the outer layers, the tablet begins to swell and gradually break down. The capsules were the first oral modified-release opioid product that contained hydromorphone HCl. This means these agents have lower maximum and higher minimum concentrations than MSContin.


Each bead begins as a nonparallel core which functions as a carrieronto which a solution of active ingredient is applied.

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of twenty-four-hourly Kapanol compared to twelve-hourly MSContin in the treatment of severe cancer pain. Related articles in Web of Science Google Scholar. Sustained relief of chronic pain. However, their polymer coating consists of an insoluble ethylcellulose base along with polyethylene glycol PEG and a methacrylic acid copolymer.

During biosynthesis, galactose residues periodically become attached roughly once in every four mannose units. However, this does allow for some drug to be absorbed quickly into the body. Purdue Pharma has conducted in vitro studies of the effect of alcohol on the dissolution profile of MSContin and OxyContin tablets. Hydromorphone hydrochloride extended-release capsules: As only the PEG component can dissolve at that point, the pores are relatively small, limiting drug diffusion.

Nor is there a specific relationship between the two retardants and the two terms in the absorption model. The LBG molecule has two distinct regions, which alternate along the mannose polymer backbone. The FDA has reviewed data from this study, has concurred that there is no interaction between Kadian and alcohol in vivo when administered concomitantly, and has not required any changes to the package insert [32].
