Gelatin or a non-gelatin polymeric material such as hypromellose
, water, starch, and plasticizer is used in manufacturing hard or soft gelatin capsule shells.
At the show, the team will showcase Lonza's vegetarian Vcaps Plus capsules, made from hypromellose
(HPMC) and water only.
The placebo controls contained calcium hydrogen phosphate, cellulose microcyrstalline, sodium starch glycolate, magnesium stearate, hypromellose
and coating colour.
(HPMC) capsules are made from acid-resistant polymers to protect probiotics in the low pH stomach environment, as well as providing a modified release to allow for complete dissolution in the intestine."
HPMC, also known as hypromellose
, is propylene glycol ether of methyl cellulose.
For the validation of the analytical method aiming to quantify the PAR in tablet formulations a selectivity study was carried out by analyzing the UV spectra (Figure 3) obtained for PAR and the excipients (stearic acid, starch, hypromellose
, macrogol and povidone).
"Patients who suffer from dry eyes have been around for a long time, but historically they would have been sent off with hypromellose
eye drops," independent practice owner Mr Sohal (pictured above), told OT.

Antibiotic moxifloxacin (Vigamox 0.05%, Alcon) and lubricants hypromellose
, (Tear Naturale II, Alcon) were advised for one week.
EyeMo comes in two variants: EyeMo Red Eyes Formula contains tetrahydrozoline HCI (for red eyes, watery eyes, sore eyes, and itchy eyes) for quick relief of eye redness and minor discomforts caused by irritants; and EyeMo Moisturizing Formula that contains hypromellose
(for dry eyes) that lubricates and soothes the eyes, easing eye strain and dryness.
From literature search, six different carriers possessing P-gp inhibiting activity like Poloxamer 188, Kolliphor TPGS, Tween 80, Soluplus, Povidone (PVP K30), and Hypromellose
(HPMC E5) were selected and were screened out by phase solubility study to determine the most appropriate and suitable carrier.
