    As packaging and delivery system combined products, pre-filled syringes (PFS) are becoming increasingly popular in the field of biopharmaceutical products for their own advantages. However, the development of biopharmaceutical products in PFS presents its own distinctive challenges. The components of the PFS are likely to interact with the drug, in particular, issues involving incompatibility with silicone oil which often be used as a lubricant. Silicone oil will migrate into injection to form droplets, which may induce aggregation of protein, resulting the formation of insoluble particles and other issues. Therefore, this paper reviews the development of PFSs, the siliconization technology for PFSs, the insoluble particles caused by silicone oil and the solutions to this matter.

    Gefitinib (1) is a novel medicament for a targeted tumor therapy. It is used in the treatment for latestage non-small cell lung cancer. The marketed formulation of 1 is tablets with low absorption and oral bioavailability. However, the adverse reactions of 1 are exacerbated with the increasing of dosage. To improve the poor oral bioavailability of 1, its inclusion complexes had been environmental-friendly synthesized by mechanochemical technology with GMS 10-8 roll mill in this study. Arabinogalactan (AG) and hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD) were separately used as inclusion carriers for 1. The synthesized complexes were characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxation technique (T2), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry(DSC), powder X-ray diffraction (P-XRD). Results of in vitro tests showed that the solubility of 1 was increased from 0.77 g/L to 2.16 g/L, and the dissolution at 120 min was increased from 60% to 92% of its mechanochemical treated complexes with HP-β-CD. Similarily, the solubility of 1 in its complex with AG was increased to 1.32 g/L, and the dissolution at 120 min was increased to 75%. Pharmacokinetic behaviors of these inclusion complexes were investigated with male SD rats as the animal models. The rats were divided into 4 groups: injection group with 1 (10 mg/kg), intragastric administration groups with 1, 1/AG inclusion complexes or 1/HP-β-CD inclusion complexes (50 mg/kg). Results showed that the absolute bioavailability of 1 in rats with intragastric administration were 56.94%, 81.63% and 78.48% for 1, 1/AG inclusion complexes and 1/HP-β-CD inclusion complexes, respectively. In conclusion, the two synthesized complexes of 1 were in formation of the inclusion, with increased solubility, dissolution in vitro and absorption in vivo. It indicated that the mechanochemical technology was a promising approach to develop 1 solid oral dosage forms with decreased dosage and improved oral bioavailability.

    The pharmaceutical films are single- or multi-layer sheets with a size of postage stamp, which can be referred as a drug release platform used for both local and system action via oral, buccal, sublingual, ocular, vaginal and dental routes. The study of films in China can be traced back to 1970s, while the contraceptive films for vaginal administration were developed by China State Institute of Pharmaceutical Industry. And the current Chinese Pharmacopoeia on this dosage form was updated on the 1985 edition. Compared with the traditional dosage forms, the pharmaceutical film can be considered as a versatile drug delivery system with several clinical advantages, including convenient administration, high patient compliance and enhanced bioavailability. Furthermore, a prolonged drug release and lowered administration frequency can be achieved by using suitable polymers. This paper focuses on the research and application progress of pharmaceutical films, and aims to provide an overview of their formulation, production progress, particular features, and quality evaluation methods.

    A pharmaceutical cocrystal is a crystalline material comprising an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and a cocrystal coformer (CCF). API and CCF have definite stoichiometric amounts in pharmaceutical cocrystal molecules. Preparation of pharmaceutical cocrystals is an efficient method to improve the physicochemical properties of poorly soluble drugs. Study on dissolution behavior is one of the hot spots in the field of pharmaceutical cocrystal. This paper summarizes the research progress in pharmaceutical cocrystal screening, preparation and dissolution process, and puts emphasis on discussing the research methods and results about dissolution of pharmaceutical cocrystals. The measurement methods of equilibrium solubility (or apparent solubility) and intrinsic dissolution rate are described. UV imaging dissolution system is introduced, which can carry out in situ monitoring of cocrystal dissolution and provide real time UV image about dissolution process. For theoretical studies on dissolution, two functions have been put forward by Rodríguez-Hornedo's research group to calculate intrinsic solubility of pharmaceutical cocrystal and solubility at eutectic point. Solubility obtained theoretically by calculation can provide essential information for cocrystal screening, preparation and formulation. During cocrystal dissolution process, high solubility of pharmaceutical cocrystal results in a supersaturation of poorly soluble APIs and further crystallization of APIs, which is called solution mediated phase transition (SMPT). The advantage of pharmaceutical cocrystal on improving API dissolution rate can be lost if the SMPT phenomenon happens. Research progress on inhibition of SMPT has also been introduced in this paper.

    On the basis of a literature survey, this paper summarizes the characteristics and applications to oral solid preparations of Eudragit, a series of commonly used pharmaceutical excipients. The film forming process of Eudragit depends on its minimum film forming temperature (MFT) and glass transition temperature (Tg). Eudragit polymers can be divided into pH- and osmotic-dependent acrylic resins. pH-Dependent acrylic resins can be dissolved in different
    pH media and with popular applications to the site-specific delivery systems. For example, the Eudragit series E are commonly used in solubilization, taste-masking, moisture-protection. Osmotic-dependent resins can be used as sustainedrelease materials. Moreover, several application technologies, such as EudrapulseTM, EudramodeTM and EudracolTM, based on the combination of insoluble Eudragit and other materials, are developed to regulate the drug release rate. In addition, the applications of Eudragit to novel pharmaceutical technologies (3D printing and electrostatic spinning) are briefly introduced.

    Isolation technology has been widely implemented in the pharmaceutical industry, which is developing rapidly in recent years. Vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) sterilization has become a common option in isolation technology. However, some VHP-sensitive peptides and items (such as stoppers, primary packaging materials, etc) were not suitable for VHP sterilization due to the strong oxidizing property. It was confirmed that VHP could penetrate breathe bags and bioprocess containers. So, the resistance performances of packaging containers with different compositions were investigated by determining VHP concentration changes in bags during the sterilization process. The results showed that four packing containers of ultralow density polyethylene (ULDPE)/ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA)/ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH)/ULDPE, polyethylene (PE)/EVOH/ULDPE, polyester/EVOH/PE and polyamide/EVOH/PE/PE/ ULDPE could prevent VHP penetration.
