Antimicrobial resistance is one of the most significant health challenges worldwide. Meropenem is a broad spectrum beta-lactam antibiotic that possesses high activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. However, it has a short plasma half-life, and thus requiring frequent administration of high doses. For the first time, meropenem-loaded chitosan nanoparticles were prepared and evaluated as a potential tool to overcome antimicrobial resistance and to improve pharmacokinetics of the drug. Spherical nanosized particles were prepared and demonstrated ultrahigh encapsulation efficiency of meropenem (i...

Bacteria in the genus Streptomyces and its close relatives are prolific producers of secondary metabolites with antibiotic activity. Genome sequencing of these bacteria has revealed a rich source of potentially new antibiotic pathways, whose products have never been observed. Moreover, these new pathways can provide novel genes that could be used in combinatorial biosynthesis approaches to generate unnatural analogues of existing antibiotics. We explore here the use of multiple orthologous integrating plasmid systems, based on the int/attP loci from phages TG1, SV1, and ϕBT1, to express the polyketide synthase (PKS) for erythromycin in a heterologous Streptomyces host...

Valsartan is a specific angiotensin II antagonist used for the treatment of hypertension. It suffers from low aqueous solubility and high variability in its absorption after oral administration. The aim of this study was to improve the dissolution and thereby the bioavailability of Valsartan through the development of self nano-emulsifying drug delivery systems. Four ternary phase diagrams were constructed to identify the self-emulsification region of Capmul® MCM, Labrafil® M1944, Capryol™ 90 and Labrafac® PG together with Cremophore® RH 40 and Transcutol™ HP as oil, surfactant and co-surfactant, respectively...

Gastro retentive drug delivery system techniques were adopted to deliver drugs having narrow absorption window from a particular site in the GIT. Therefore, gastro retentive dosage forms were retained in the stomach, thus improving absorption and bioavailability would be improved consequently. In this study, cinnarizine (CNZ) was employed as the model drug. CNZ is a poorly soluble basic drug, suffering from low and erratic bioavailability. This is attributed to its pH-dependant solubility (highly soluble at pH < 4)...

Tizanidine HCl is a skeletal muscle relaxant that suffers from extensive hepatic metabolism resulting in 34-40% oral bioavailability. It also suffers from short half-life (2.1-4.2h) that necessitates frequent administration thus reducing patient compliance. In addition, tizanidine HCl is water soluble, so it is a challenging candidate for controlled drug delivery. In our study, tizanidine was encapsulated in chitosan lactate beads cross-linked with sodium tripolyphosphate. The beads were further incorporated into chitosan lactate wafer to be easily applied to buccal mucosa, aiming to bypass the hepatic metabolism...

Pentoxifylline-controlled release tablets were prepared using xanthan gum. The effects of polymer concentration, rotation speed, ionic strength, and pH of the dissolution medium on the release of the water-soluble pentoxifylline were studied. The release rate decreased with increasing polymer concentration in the tablet, which was reflected in the increase in the mean dissolution time. A higher rotation speed and increased ionic strength of the dissolution medium resulted in a higher rate of drug release of xanthan-based tablets...
