|Title:||Evaluation of carrier properties for dry powder inhalation applications||Authors:||Nguyen, Thi Quynh Ngoc||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Bioengineering||Issue Date:||2017||Abstract:||Dry powder inhalation (DPI) formulations have been playing a critical part to increase the effectiveness of dry-powder delivery for inhalation. Most DPI formulations are composed of micron-size drug mixed with larger carrier particles, which are capable of diminishing aggregation, and aid in dispersion. Moreover, the performance of carrier-based DPI formulations is highly dependent upon interactions between the drug and the carrier particles. A combination of many factors such as particle size, shape, surface area, and morphology give an influence to the drug-carrier interaction forces and aerodynamic properties. In addition to those above factors, carrier surface properties play a key part in the dispersion and deposition of DPI formulations. This dissertation mainly focuses on investigating the effect of carrier surface characteristics in vitro deposition and drug-carrier particles interaction.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/72365||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
