Inclusion complex of ITH12674 with 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin: Preparation, physical characterization and pharmacological effect. Michalska Patrycja,Wojnicz Aneta,Ruiz-Nuño Ana,Abril Sheila,Buendia Izaskun,León Rafael Carbohydrate polymers ITH12674 is a multitarget drug, designed to exert a dual "drug-prodrug" mechanism of action, able to induce the phase II antioxidant and anti-inflammatory response for the treatment of brain ischemia. However, its physicochemical properties limit its potential preclinical development due to its low water solubility and instability towards heat and pH variations. In order to improve its properties, we prepared the inclusion complex of ITH12674 with 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD) by the freeze-drying method. The formation of the inclusion complex was confirmed by FT-IR spectroscopy, PXRD, DSC, H NMR and SEM techniques. Experimental results showed that the inclusion complex enhanced its water solubility and stability against heat, acidic and basic conditions. Furthermore, the inclusion complex, prepared in water solution, exerted the same potency to induce the phase II antioxidant response as the pure ITH12674. Thus the formation of the inclusion complex with HP-β-CD is a very effective method to stabilize and solubilize the active compound for its future preclinical development. 10.1016/j.carbpol.2016.09.072
Formation of inclusion complex of enrofloxacin with 2-hydroxypropyl--cyclodextrin. Ding Yili,Pang Yuchang,Vara Prasad Chamakura V N S,Wang Bingyun Drug delivery Enrofloxacin, a third-generation fluoroquinolone, is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial drug against a lot of veterinary bacterial diseases. However, bactericidal activity of enrofloxacin is concentration-dependent and its poor aqueous solubility and bitter taste limit its development and application. Meanwhile, 2-hydroxypropyl--cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD), a widely used cyclodextrin analog, is a safe and an effective drug carrier. It forms inclusion complexes with its drug substrates and improves their physiochemical and pharmacokinetic properties. Enrofloxacin was also found to form a stable inclusion complex with HP-β-CD and different research groups have shown improved solubility for enrofloxacin by 32.5%, 9.25 and 165-fold. Our own efforts in this direction resulted in manifold improvement (916-fold) in its solubility compared to the previous studies. It was further shown that pharmaceutical properties, absorption and bioavailability, of enrofloxacin have also been significantly improved by complexation with HP-β-CD. 10.1080/10717544.2020.1724210
Liquiritin-Hydroxypropyl-Beta-Cyclodextrin Inclusion Complex: Preparation, Characterization, Bioavailability and Antitumor Activity Evaluation. Journal of pharmaceutical sciences The pharmacological activities of liquiritin (LT) are greatly limited by its insolubility and low oral absorption. The purpose of this study was to prepare LT-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin inclusion complex (LT-HP-β-CD) to increase water solubility, oral bioavailability and antitumor effect of LT. Herein, saturated aqueous solution method was applied to prepare the LT-HP-β-CD prior to characterization via scanning electron microscope (SEM), infrared radiation (IR) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Also, in vitro release and in vivo pharmacokinetics were evaluated. Moreover, the anti-tumor activity of the formulation was investigated in the A549 lung cancer cells. The results of SEM, IR, XRD and DSC showed that LT-HP-β-CD was successfully formulated. In vitro release and oral bioavailability of LT-HP-β-CD compared with the free LT was significantly higher. Successfully, antitumor effect of LT was remarkably enhanced by the preparation of LT-HP-β-CD. Altogether, the LT-HP-β-CD represents a potential carrier for enhancing the water solubility and oral bioavailability of LT coupled with antitumor activity enhancement. 10.1016/j.xphs.2022.03.021
Host-guest complexes as water-soluble high-performance DNP polarizing agents. Mao Jiafei,Akhmetzyanov Dmitry,Ouari Olivier,Denysenkov Vasyl,Corzilius Björn,Plackmeyer Jörn,Tordo Paul,Prisner Thomas F,Glaubitz Clemens Journal of the American Chemical Society Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) enhances the sensitivity of solid-state NMR (SSNMR) spectroscopy by orders of magnitude and, therefore, opens possibilities for novel applications from biology to materials science. This multitude of opportunities implicates a need for high-performance polarizing agents, which integrate specific physical and chemical features tailored for various applications. Here, we demonstrate that for the biradical bTbK in complex with captisol (CAP), a β-cyclodextrin derivative, host-guest assembling offers a new and easily accessible approach for the development of new polarizing agents. In contrast to bTbK, the CAP-bTbK complex is water-soluble and shows significantly improved DNP performance compared to the commonly used DNP agent TOTAPOL. Furthermore, NMR and EPR data reveal improved electron and nuclear spin relaxation properties for bTbK within the host molecule. The numerous possibilities to functionalize host molecules will permit designing novel radical complexes targeting diverse applications. 10.1021/ja409840y
Straightforward self-assembly of porphyrin nanowires in water: harnessing adamantane/beta-cyclodextrin interactions. Fathalla Maher,Neuberger Amelia,Li Shao-Chun,Schmehl Russell,Diebold Ulrike,Jayawickramarajah Janarthanan Journal of the American Chemical Society A convenient approach for the self-assembly of well-defined porphyrin nanowires in water, wherein the individual monomers do not aggregate via pi-pi interactions, is disclosed. These unidirectional and heteromeric assemblies are instead composed of robust beta-CD/adamantane host/guest interactions. A combination of surface microscopies and fluorescence energy transfer experiments were conducted on the nanowires demonstrating their stability and resistance to disassembly. 10.1021/ja1030722
Supramolecular self-assembly of cyclodextrin and higher water soluble guest: thermodynamics and topological studies. De Sousa Frederico B,Denadai Angelo M Leite,Lula Ivana S,Nascimento Clebio S,Fernandes Neto Nathália S G,Lima Ana C,De Almeida Wagner B,Sinisterra Rubén D Journal of the American Chemical Society The supramolecular interactions between Imipramine hydrochloride (IMI), a tricyclic antidepressant, and beta-cyclodextrin (betaCD) have been investigated by experimental techniques and theoretical calculations. The association between these molecules might be lead to a host/guest compound, in which the physical chemistry properties of the guest molecule, such as high solubility, can be decreased. These new properties acquired by the inclusion phenomena are important to develop a strategy for pharmaceutical formulation. Nuclear magnetic resonance and horizontal attenuated total reflectance provided relevant information on the complex stoichiometries and the sites of interactions between the host and guest molecules. Stoichiometries of 1:2, 1:1, and 2:1 betaCD/IMI have been detected in solution. Self-diffusion coefficient and dynamic light scattering analysis provided information on the self-aggregation of the complex. Also, isothermal titration calorimetry studies indicated the existence of equilibrium between different complexes in solution. In order to determine the preferred arrangement for the inclusion complex formed by the IMI molecule and betaCD, theoretical calculations were performed. Of all proposed supramolecular structures, the 2:1 betaCD/IMI complex was calculated to be the most energetically favorable, in both gas and aqueous phases. The calculations indicated that the intermolecular hydrogen bonds involving the hydroxyl groups of betaCD play a major role in stabilizing the supramolecular 2:1 structure, corroborating experimental findings. 10.1021/ja801080v
