ABSTRACT:
The purpose of this study was to formulate and evaluate the solid dispersions of bicalutamide, a non- steroidal anti androgen. The role of various water-soluble carriers was studied for dissolution enhancement of a poorly soluble model drug, bicalutamide, using solid dispersion technique. Diverse carriers viz, Povidone K 30, Poloxamer 407 and Gelucire 50/13 were investigated for this purpose. Solid dispersions with Povidone K 30 were prepared by solvent evaporation technique and the dispersions with Poloxamer 407 and Gelucire 50/13 were prepared by fusion process.The results showed that Gelucire 50/13 based solid dispersions exhibited higher dissolution rate than other dispersions. Dissolution studies showed a significant change in the dissolution profile of bicalutamide when dispersed in hydrophilic carriers at varying concentrations, but the maximum drug release was exhibited by the dispersion made with Gelucire 50/13 containing drug: Gelucire 50/13 1:1.The dispersions were characterized by X-ray diffraction. The diffractions exhibited in PXRD reflected the change in the crystalline structure of the bicalutamide in povidone based dispersion, but not in other carrier dispersions.
