Abstract

Investigation on the influence of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) on solubility and dissolution properties of celecoxib/hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin system was carried out, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the drug bioavailability. 1H-NMR and 13C-NMR spectroscopy were first performed to elucidate the type of interactions between celecoxib (CEL) and hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD). Then, solubility studies in the absence and in the presence of HPMC were carried out in aqueous solution. After heating in autoclave of CEL/HP-β-CD/HPMC suspensions a synergistic increasing effect on the aqueous solubility of CEL was observed. In fact, the presence of both HP-β-CD (0.05 M) and HPMC (0.25% w/v) gave rise to a 330-fold CEL solubility increase, whereas the cyclodextrin alone provided a 34-fold increase. Gibbs free energy values calculated from phase solubility data were all negative, indicating the spontaneous nature of CEL solubilization, and they decreased in the presence of HPMC, demonstrating that the solubilization conditions became more favorable. CEL/HP-β-CD and CEL/HP-β-CD/HPMC solid systems (physical mixtures and coevaporated products) were characterized by differential scanning calorimetry and infrared spectroscopy. Results suggested that the coevaporation method yields a high degree of amorphous entities and indicated the formation of a CEL/HP-β-CD complex in the coevaporated products. The positive effect of HPMC is particularly evident when looking at the CEL dissolution rate from the binary and ternary solid systems. Specifically, the percent of CEL dissolved after 10 min. resulted 84.21% for ternary coevaporated product and 50.18% for binary coevaporated product with respect to 13.10% for the drug alone.
