Three‑Dimensional Printing of Repaglinide Tablets: Effect of Perforations on Hypromellose‑Based Drug Release

Journal of Pharmaceutical Innovation 2022

Purpose Drug release from hypromellose-based tablets involves the formation of characteristic dry cores surrounded by outer gel layers in aqueous media. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of perforation sizes on the dissolution of repaglinide from three-dimensionally (3D) printed tablets with two viscosity grades of hypromellose as rate-controlling polymer. Methods Printing pastes of appropriate consistency were developed and fed into a bioplotter cartridge to extrude strands/filaments. Tablets were printed in a crisscross pattern with 1.0, 1.3, and 1.6 mm of inter-strand distances. Printed tablets were characterized and repaglinide dissolution data were evaluated mathematically.
