Abstract

FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF BALSALAZIDE COLON TARGETED SUSTAINED RELEASE MATRIX TABLETS

Nampelly Karnakar*, Anil Middha and Reddy Sunil

ABSTRACT

In the present research work sustained release matrix formulation of Balsalazide targeted to colon by using various polymers developed. To achieve pH-independent drug release of Balsalazide, pH modifying agents (buffering agents) were used. Colon targeted tablets were prepared in two steps. Initially core tablets were prepared and then the tablets were coated by using different pH dependent polymers. Ethyl cellulose, Eudragit RLPO and S100 were used as enteric coating polymers. The pre-compression blend of all formulations was subjected to various flow property tests and all the formulations were passed the tests. The tablets were coated by using polymers and the coated tablets were subjected to various evaluation techniques. The tablets were passed all the tests. Among all the formulations F6 formulation was found to be optimized as it was retarded the drug release up to 12 hours and showed maximum of 98.45% drug release. It followed zero order kinetics mechanism.

Keywords: Balsalazide, Colon targeteddrug delivery system, Ethyl cellulose, Eudragit RLPO, Eudragit S 100.
