Abstract: Intravenously injectable o/w emulsions of drugs being poorly soluble in water and simultaneously in oils need to be produced by locating the drug in the interfacial lecithin layer, e.g. amphotericin B. For achieving this, up to now organic solvents were required. The objective was to develop a solvent-free production method for such emulsions. Drug and the pre-formed parenteral emulsion Lipofundin were mixed and subjected to high pressure homogenisation. Drug powder and emulsions were characterised regarding s…
