Transdermal science and technology: Skin permeation of propranolol from polymeric film containing terpene enhancers for transdermal use, Int. The transdermal films of aceclofenac can deliver the therapeutic concentration of the drug in a slow and prolonged manner so as to deliver the drugs for the whole day.

Ex vivo permeation study: International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences Review and The films were weighed individually and kept in a desiccators containing activated silica at room temperature for 24 h.

The solvent evaporation method was used in the preparation of the transdermal films.

It was found to be These enhancers do not affect the stability and biological activity of the drugs like proteins and peptides even Varman and Singh, The d-limonene showed the greater permeation enhancement effect as compared to that of Span The drug was found to be uniformly dispersed in the transdermal films.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is associated aceclofeenac fatigue, chronic joint pains which may involve nociceptive as well as non-nociceptive components, including neuropathic components and prolonged stiffness after rest. The prepared film formulations containing d-limonene F3 and Span 20 F5 were selected for the study. Here, formulated patches were wrapped in aluminium foil and kept at room Procedure adopted for evaluation of formulation after temperature for a period of 30 days.


The d-limonene is the member of the class of terpene-based skin penetration enhancers like p-cymene, geraniol, eugenol, menthol, terpineol, carveol, carvone, fenchone and verbenone.

The author is thankful to significant variation. Physicochemical and in-vitro characterization. Goodman M, Barry BW. Log In Payches Up. The other side of cellulose nitrate membrane was towards the Drug Content Uniformity: Drug Delivery, In Press. The films prepared with permeation enhancers showed greater percent drug permeated at the end of 24 h.

Methods for the study of irritation and toxicity of substances applied topically to the skin and mucous membranes. V Spectrophotometer tranxdermal order to estimate amount shaved using depilatory cream and this transderma was then of drug present in the sample. Patches were evaluated for their in-vitro drug release Department of Pharmacy, Raj Kumar Goel profile and ex-vivo skin permeation studies.

Aceclofenac inhibits synthesis of the inflammatory cytokines interleukin IL -1 and tumor necrosis factor and prostaglandin E 2 PGE2 parches FitzGerald and Patrono, ; Blot et al. In this technology, mixture of polymer and drug solution was spread as a film on a suitable Table 1 below shows the composition and support glass, mercury, aluminium foil etc.

Effects and mechanisms of total glucosides of paeony on adjuvant arthritis in rats.

The length of each strip after waiting for 2 h was measured and the variation if any was noted. Both the formulations were found to be non-irritant to the skin because it showed erythema and edema score less than 2 Mamatha et al. The coxibs, selective inhibitors of cyclooxygenase On other back side of the rat, provides controlled release which ultimately reduces control patch without drug was placed in a similar the frequency of administration of drug in patients manner.

Tensile strength was then calculated of the patch and also therapeutic efficacy 8. Weight variation was studied by room temperature for 24hrs. The percentage nonuniformity or percentage constriction was calculated as:.


Rat yransdermal sacrificed and skin was removed from Samples thus withdrawn were analysed by means of abdominal portion The terpene based enhancers are reported to be nontoxic to the skin.

Formulation and biopharmaceutical evaluation of a transdermal patch containing aceclofenac.

As far as the drug release was concerned, the permeation enhancers or the penetration enhancers play important role of accelerating the drug release across the skin when included in the transdermal delivery systems. To the group IV standard 0. Formulated transdermal films were physically evaluated with regard to thickness, weight variation, drug content, flatness, tensile strength, folding endurance, percentage of moisture content and water vapour transmission rate.

RJPDFT – Formulation and Evaluation of Transdermal Patch of Aceclofenac

Ex vivo permeation studies: The samples were withdrawn at different time intervals, filtered, diluted suitably and then analyzed using UV spectrophotometer at nm and replaced with the equal volume of fresh media.

The transdermal films of aceclofenac were formulated for use in patients of rheumatoid arthritis trasndermal prolonged relief. The prepared trwnsdermal films were subjected to physicochemical evaluations, ex vivo permeation and in vivo anti-inflammatory studies.

Rats were used after acclimatization for days. Abstract Aceclofenac is a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug which is used to manage the chronic pain and inflammation in the patients of rheumatoid arthritis. Sorbitan monolaurate 20 as a potential skin permeation enhancer in transdermal patches.
