Entandophragma angolense (WELW) CDC GUM AS A NOVEL BINDER AND MUCOADHESIVE COMPONENT IN ORAL TABLETS

ABSTRACT

Mucoadhesive drug delivery systems are designed to prolong drug retention, thus offering advantages over conventional dosages through reduced dosage regimen and improved patient compliance. Natural polymers have gained importance over synthetic materials as excipients in such systems because they are less expensive, biocompatible and biodegradable. Entandophragma angolense gum (ENTA) is used in traditional medicine as a febrifuge, but its excipient properties have not been exploited. This study was carried out to evaluate ENTA as a novel polymer-binder and mucoadhesive component in oral tablets. Entandophragma angolense gum, obtained as dried exudates from the incised trunk of the tree, was characterised using material properties, rheological studies, Fourier-Transform Infrared spectrometer and X-ray diffractometer. Tablets were prepared by Wet Granulation (WG) and Direct Compression (DC) techniques using 2.5 - 10.0 %w/w polymer as binder and 60.0 - 90.0 %w/w polymer as matrix system for controlled release tablets containing ENTA (or official gelatin or hydroxypropylcellulose) with chlorpheniramine maleate (CPM) and ibuprofen as model drugs. Compressional characteristics of the tablets were determined using density measurements, and the Heckel and Kawakita plots. Mechanical and release properties of the tablet formulations were determined by standard methods. Mucoadhesive time (MT) of the tablets were determined ex-vivo in phosphate buffer (pH 7.4) and 0.1M hydrochloric acid (HCl, pH 1.2) using the rotating cylinder method containing excised pig ileum. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics, ANOVA and regression at p = 0.05.
