Hydrogels in Drug Delivery Mallikarjunayadav m.pharm2nd sem Vagdevi college of pharmacy department of Pharmaceutics


Definition Three-dimensional networks of hydrophilic polymer chains that do not dissolve but can swell in water both solid like and liquid like properties high biocompatibility environmental stimuli respondent (temperature, pH, light, specific molecules) Ideal for controlled drug delivery


Classification - various criteria for the classification of hydrogels Origin Natural Synthetic Water content or degree of swelling Low swelling Medium swelling High swelling Superabsorbent Porosity Nonporous Microporous Macroporous Superporous Cross-linking Chemical (covalent bonding) Physical (noncovalent bonding) Biodegradability Biodegradable Nondegradable

Properties and Structures of Hydrogels:

Properties and Structures of Hydrogels R s = (W s -W d ) / W d R s = swelling ratio W s = weight of swollen hydrogels W d = weight of dried hydrogels Swelling property is influenced by: type and composition of monomers other environmental factors such as : temperature, pH, ionic strength cross-linking Mechanical strength and permeability Cross-linking and/or copolymerization with hydrophobic comonomers density↑, mechanical strength↑, swelling property ↓

Hydrogel Fabrication:

Hydrogel Fabrication Chemical hydrogels Physical hydrogels ▪ Hydrogen bonding ▪ hydrophobic interaction ▪ crystallinity ▪ stereocomplex formation ▪ ionic complexation Covalently crosslinked Noncovalently crosslinked Thermoset hydrogels Thermoplastic hydrogels Volume phase transition Sol-gel phase transition Reliable shape stability and memory Limited shape stability and memory

Applications of Hydrogels in Drug Delivery:

Applications of Hydrogels in Drug Delivery - Benefits of controlled drug delivery more effective therapies with reduced side effects the maintenance of effective drug concentration levels in the blood patient’s convenience as medicines hence increased patient compliance - Release mechanisms of drug molecules : diffusion, dissolution, osmosis, ion exchange

Applications of Hydrogels in Drug Delivery:

Applications of Hydrogels in Drug Delivery - Diffusion controlled Drug Delivery (1) Polymer matrix Water-insoluble Polymer matrices (2) Reservoir system time Water-insoluble Polymer membrane time

Applications of Hydrogels in Drug Delivery:

Applications of Hydrogels in Drug Delivery Environment-Sensitive Hydrogels respond to environmental change : temperature, pH, specific molecule reversible volume phase transition or sol-gel phase transition “ intelligent ” or “ smart ” hydrogel Drug-loaded gel Change in pH for gel swelling Drug release through the swollen network Drug release by the squeezing action Change in temperature for gel collapse

Specific applications of Hydrogels in Oral Drug Delivery

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fast-disintegrating tablet formulations fast swelling and superabsorbent properties microparticles of superporous hydrogels mucoadhesive hydrogels buccal drug delivery Gastric emptying of oral dosage forms The physical properties (size and density) of the oral dosage form The presence of food in the stomach Intragastric floating system low density float on top of the gastric juice Specific applications of Hydrogels in Oral Drug Delivery

PowerPoint Presentation:

Mucoadhesive system cross-linked PAA highly mucoadhesive at pH (1-3) of the stomach (∵ hydrogen bonding) Superporous hydrogels Swell to a very large size High swelling ratio ( > a few hundreds) Fast swelling property - avoid premature emptying by the housekeeper waves Gastric retention device (ex. Dogs-from several hours to a day) Ac-Di-Sol (cross-linked carboxymethylcellulose sodium) Specific applications of Hydrogels in Oral Drug Delivery

PowerPoint Presentation:

Hydrotropic Hydrogels for delivery of poorly soluble drug Hydrotropic agent : Diverse class of water soluble compounds at high concentration, enhance water solubilities of poorly soluble solutes ex) N,N- dimethylnicotinamide (3.5M), N,N- diethylnicotinamide - Many drugs : poorly soluble in water : low absorption and low bioavailability - Low-molecular-weight hydrotropes : high concentration - Polymeric forms of hydrotropes (e.g., hydrotropic hydrogels) Specific applications of Hydrogels in Oral Drug Delivery


Summary Hydrogels have played role in the development of various controlled-release formulation biocompatible and increasing the solubility of poorly soluble drug Hydrogels with novel properties will continue to play important role in drug delivery smart hydrogels and new controlled-release formulation
