Example text

Crestar is a small cylindrical shaped ear implant containing 3 mg norgestomet homogeneously dispersed throughout a silicone matrix. a. a. Drug release from dispersed matrix systems For a better understanding of the manner in which a drug is released from a dispersed matrix system (in which it is dispersed within the matrix above its solubility limit) one must assume the following: 1. The drug present is in excess of its solubility (the total amount of drug per unit volume of polymer is substantially greater than the solubility of the drug per unit volume of the polymer) and is uniformly suspended throughout the polymer matrix.

This need was met through the development of the 'Push-Melt' ruminal bolus^'^^'^^'^"^ by scientists at ALZA and Merck. The product comprises a membrane cup that is extruded from cellulose acetate and various plasticizers which is filled with an osmotic hydrogel tablet. Placed above the tablet is a partition layer, a drug containing layer and a densifier. The densifier is made of sintered ironfilingsdesigned such that it has a crush strength similar to that of bone^^ to ensure that it will not harm the equipment used in rendering plants following slaughter of the animal.

The drug release rate was controlled via the properties of the erodible tablet formulation. An alternate method for encasement involves the application of a moisture resistant coating over the drug reservoir. A simple but effective formulation which utilizes this approach is the TimeCapsule which comprises a drug reservoir of compressed zinc oxide covered on all surfaces except one by a moisture resistant waxy coating. The zinc oxide erodes from the open end (it is prevented from eroding on all surfaces by the coating) while simultaneously the coating splits off as it becomes unsupported by the zinc oxide reservoir.
