Abstract

Various powder mixtures were used to administer insulin via the nasal route: a co-spray dried mixture of Amioca® starch and Carbopol® 974 P (1/3), drum dried waxy maize starch and Carbopol® 974 P (9/1), maltodextrin DE38/Carbopol® 974 P (9/1) and pure drum dried waxy maize starch. Oscillatory rheology is performed to study and compare the viscosity, elasticity and mucoadhesivity of these powder formulations. There was no rheological synergism detectable with the co-spray dried mixture of Amioca® starch and Carbopol® 974 P (1/3), drum dried waxy maize starch and Carbopol® 974 P (9/1) and maltodextrin DE38/Carbopol® 974 P (9/1). Interaction due to entanglements was seen with drum dried waxy maize starch (100%). The differences in nasal bioavailability between the different carriers could be explained by differences in G′ (storage modulus, elasticity) and G″ (loss modulus, viscosity) values. The formulation giving the highest bioavailability, provided also the highest G′ and G″ values. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
