Similarly, to date, all the drug delivery approaches reported including self-emulsifying drug delivery (SEDDS) [8], solid dispersion [9], and complexation with cyclodextrin [10] were aimed at improving the dissolution or use of alkalizers [4] to modulate the microenvironmental pH so that dissolution can be improved.
They have a direct effect on rumen fluid pH through chemical changes in the rumen because they neutralize acidity through H+ sequestration and increase buffering capacity of ruminal fluid, but some experiences have suggested that the potential benefits of controlling ruminal pH with buffers and alkalizers are limited, and they cannot prevent ruminal acidosis alone.
Tokyo, Japan, Mar 13, 2006 - (JCN) - Nippon Chemiphar and Torii Pharmaceutical have agreed to terminate their existing partnership for Uralyt-U and Uralyt Tablets, two urinary alkalizers that they are jointly marketing in Japan, on the expiration date, September 30.
