Films orodispersibles de tétrabénazine pour l’administration pédiatrique

Abstract : During the last decade, various strategies to develop innovating oral dosage forms for pediatric population were investigated in order to improve treatment efficiency, safety and acceptability. Among these new delivery systems, orodispersible films (ODF) present a great potential to enhance patient compliance. In ODF, drug is dissolved or dispersed in a hydrophilic film-forming polymer. Once the ODF is in the mouth, polymeric matrix disintegrates releasing the drug for local or systemic action. In this study, ODF, produced with the solvent casting/evaporation method, were developed to administer a drug of interest for pediatric population, the tetrabetazine (TBZ). Physicochemical and biopharmaceutic characterizations showed that ODF allowed a major improvement of TBZ dissolution profile in simulated saliva, mainly due to the amorphous state of the drug in ODF. ODF were identified as amorphous solid dispersion (SD) composed of both amorphous TBZ and polymer matrix. We demonstrated that the choice of the polymer plays an important role to maintain initial properties of the system and amorphous state stability over the time. H-bonding formation between TBZ and polymer is essential to assure the preservation of TBZ amorphous state. Moreover, the incorporation of cyclodextrins (CD), by generating H-bonding with TBZ, has extended its stability. By synergic effect, this association produces an improvement of drug release leading to promote bioavailability. As they are easy to swallow and allow enhancing treatment efficiency, ODF appear as suitable delivery forms for pediatric patients
