An Overview of Disintegrants

An Overview of Disintegrants

药品活性成分被人体吸收的能力取决于它的生物利用率。而生物利用度取决于药品通过肠道时,活性成分在消化液中的溶解程度。而溶解程度取决于药品的物理形态和化学成分。药片的崩解能力关系到它在体液内的溶解程度。对于大多数片剂而言,需要打破压片过程所致的颗粒凝聚力才能有效崩解。在压片之前,某些片剂产品为了将粉料结合而加入粘合剂,那么它们的崩解过程将比较困难。还有一些片剂的活性成分包裹在不能崩解的外壳内,以防止活性成分接触胃液,让药片溶解的过程难上加难。为确保片剂在人体内的分解速度足够快,每制作一批片剂前,都需要对配方进行一次例行测试。 

崩散剂片剂配方胶囊中的一种赋形剂。它提升片剂或胶囊接触液体时的崩解能力。多年来广泛应用的崩散剂有多种,它们的作用机制各不相同:(a)提升毛血管作用力,从而加强吸水能力(b)遇水后膨胀促进药片崩解(c)释放气体直接加快片剂的崩解。在产品配方中加入一种或多种崩散剂是为了提升产品的表面积,减弱固体微粒之间的凝聚力。这样起到的效果是,当片剂接触水媒介时,先崩解成颗粒,然后崩解成微粒。如图所示,片剂或胶囊在水媒介中的溶解率随着颗粒变小而上升,当片剂或胶囊崩解成微粒时,溶解率达到最高。1.快速溶解提升活性成分在人体内的吸收率,从而得到期望的治疗效果。需注意,咀嚼式的片剂产品不需要再配方中加入崩解剂。
