Abstract: Chitosan and its glutamate and hydrochloride salts were evaluated for their efficacy in improving the dissolution behaviour of naproxen (a poorly water-soluble antiinflammatory drug) and its transport in vitro across Caco-2 cell monolayers. Drug-polymer physical mixtures and coground products, prepared at two different w/w ratios (30/70 and 10/90), were characterized by differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray powder diffractometry, scanning electron microscopy, and tested for dissolution properties. Coground …
