Abstract In this study, we evaluated the correlation between the response surfaces for the tablet characteristics of placebo and active pharmaceutical ingredient (API)-containing tablets. The quantities of lactose, cornstarch, and microcrystalline cellulose were chosen as the formulation factors. Ten tablet formulations were prepared. The tensile strength (TS) and disintegration time (DT) of tablets were measured as tablet characteristics. The response surfaces for TS and DT were estimated using a nonlinear response surface method incorporating multivariate spline interpolation, and were then compared with those of placebo tablets. A correlation was clearly observed for TS and DT of all APIs, although the value of the response surfaces for TS and DT was highly dependent on the type of API used. Based on this knowledge, the response surfaces for TS and DT of API-containing tablets were predicted from only two and four formulations using regression expression and placebo tablet data, respectively. The results from the evaluation of prediction accuracy showed that this method accurately predicted TS and DT, suggesting that it could construct a reliable response surface for TS and DT with a small number of samples. This technique assists in the effective estimation of the relationships between design variables and pharmaceutical responses during pharmaceutical development.

Disintegrant is one of the most important components in a typical tablet dosage form. It is responsible for ensuring the break-up of the tablet matrix upon ingestion. Disintegrants act by different mechanisms, and a number of factors may affect their performance. It is important for formulators to understand how disintegrants function so as to be able to judiciously use disintegrants to develop optimized formulations. If the formulator is required to implement the quality by design paradigm whil...

Abstract Characterization of particulate systems (powders) is one of the remaining scientific challenges. Evaluation of powder behaviour is often empirical and the decision-making processes are experience-based. There is a need for development of analytical instrumentation enabling more fundamental understanding of powder behaviour. Flowability and tabletability, two key factors in commercial scale manufacturing of tablets with direct compression (DC) approach, were analysed for formulations con...

The application of quality by design (QbD) in pharmaceutical product development is now a thrust area for the regulatory authorities and the pharmaceutical industry. International Conference on Harmonization and United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) emphasized the principles and applications of QbD in pharmaceutical development in their guidance for the industry. QbD attributes are addressed in question-based review, developed by USFDA for chemistry, manufacturing, and controls sect...

In this work, we have quantified effects of moisture content, over the relative humidity (RH) range of 5–92% corresponding to 1.6–10.9% of water content, on flow properties of a grade of microcrystalline cellulose (Avicel PH102) using a ring shear cell. Several key powder flow parameters, including cohesion (τc), unconfined yield strength (fc), powder bulk density (ρb), flowability (ffc), and effective angle of internal friction (ϕe), were assessed. Powder flow properties deteriorated continuous...

The primary drug quality requirements—safety, efficacy, and reliability—for oral pharmaceutical products in tablet form, translate into bioavailability, tablet weight, and tablet strength. The bioavailability of an oral drug, i.e., the amount of the drug that can reach the systemic circulation, is dependent on the drug permeation rate through the epithelial membrane or on dissolution rate, in the case of bioequivalence. Thus, the critical quality attributes affecting bioavailability can be the d...

Purpose Predicting human skin permeability of chemical compounds accurately and efficiently is useful for developing dermatological medicines and cosmetics. However, previous work have two problems; 1) quality of databases used, and 2) methods for prediction models. In this paper, we attempt to solve these two problems.

AbstractThis paper proposes the development of a drug product Manufacturing Classification System (MCS) based on processing route. It summarizes conclusions from a dedicated APS conference and subsequent discussion within APS focus groups and the MCS working party. The MCS is intended as a tool for pharmaceutical scientists to rank the feasibility of different processing routes for the manufacture of oral solid dosage forms, based on selected properties of the API and the needs of the formulatio...

Abstract. Both the root mean square error (RMSE) and the mean absolute error (MAE) are regularly employed in model evaluation studies. Willmott and Matsuura (2005) have suggested that the RMSE is not a good indicator of average model performance and might be a misleading indicator of average error, and thus the MAE would be a better metric for that purpose. While some concerns over using RMSE raised by Willmott and Matsuura (2005) and Willmott et al. (2009) are valid, the proposed avoidance of R...

Abstract Our aim was to understand better the causal relationships between material attributes (MAs), process parameters (PPs), and critical quality attributes (CQAs) using an originally created large dataset and regularized linear regression models. In this study, we focused on the following three points: (1) creation of a dataset comprising several tablet production methods, (2) the influence of interaction terms of MAs and/or PPs, and (3) comparison of regularized linear regression models wit...

Abstract The objective of this study was focused on the optimization of the pharmaceutical excipients and banana extract in the preparation of orally disintegrating banana extract tablets (OD-BET) and conventional banana extract tablets (CO-BET) using a simplex lattice design. Various ratios of banana extract (BE), dibasic calcium phosphate (DCP) and microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) were used to prepare banana extract tablets (BET). The results indicated that the optimal OD-BET and CO-BET consis...
