Mutual Impact of Phase Separation/Crystallization and Water Sorption in Amorphous Solid Dispersions

The molecular integration of poorly water soluble active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in a suitable polymeric matrix is a possible approach to enhance the dissolution behavior and solubility of these APIs. Like all newly developed pharmaceutical formulations, these formulations (often denoted as amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs)) need to undergo storage stability tests at defined relative humidity (RH) and temperature conditions. In a previous work (Int. J. Pharm. 2017; 532, 635−646), it was shown that thermodynamic modeling can be successfully used to predict the long-term stability of ASDs against API crystallization and moisture-induced amorphous–amorphous phase separation (MIAPS). This work in turn demonstrates the prediction of water sorption in ASDs accounting for the potential occurrence of API crystallization and MIAPS. The water sorption and phase behavior of ASDs containing the APIs felodipine and ibuprofen incorporated in three different hydrophilic polymers poly(vinylpyrrolidone), poly(v...
