A 1H Solid State NMR Application for Pharmaceutical Development by using Ultra Fast MAS: Drug-Polymer Intermolecular Interaction on Solid Dispersions_NM190003E
The low oral bioavailability of a drug due to its poor aqueous solubility is a major challenge for pharmaceutical development. Solid dispersion (SD), where the amorphous drug is dispersed into the polymer matrix, is one of the useful approaches to improve the aqueous solubility. However, thermodynamically unstable nature of an amorphous drug increases its susceptibility to recrystallize upon storage, which, in turn, reduces its solubility and dissolution. Therefore, design of thermodynamically stable SD is required.
