Small volume parenteral .......

  1. 1. Small Volume Parenteral Presented by: Ajit Kumar Jha ASU2014010100024 1st Sem. M. Pharma. (Pharmaceutics) School of Pharmacy Apeejay stya university
  2. 2. Parenteral Parenteral refers injectable route of administration. It derived from Greek words Para (Outside) and enteron (Intestine). So it is a route of administration other than the alimentary canal. This route of administration bypasses the alimentary canal.
  3. 3. PRIMARY PARENTERAL ROUTES Routes Usual volume (mL) Needle commonly used Formulation constraints Types of medication administered SVP Sub cutaneous 0.5-2 5/8 in. , 23 gauge Need to be isotonic Insulin, vaccines Intra muscular 0.5-2 1.5 in. , 23 gauge Can be solutions, emulsions, oils or suspensions Isotonic preferably Nearly all drug classes Intra venous 1-100 Vein puncture 1.5 in. , 20-22 gauge Solutions, emulsions and liposomes Nearly all drug classes LVP 101 and larger (infusion unit) Venoclysis 1.5 in. , 18-19 gauge Solutions and some emulsions Nearly all drug classes
  4. 4. S. No. ADVANTAGES DISVANTAGES 1. Quick onset Wrong dose or over dose can be fatal 2. Vomiting and unconscious patients can take Pain at site 3. Prolonged action by modified formulation ( Depot) Trained person required 4. Nutritive fluids (glucose, electrolytes) can be given Expensive 5. Drugs with poor absorption or instability from GIT NECESSITY OF ASEPTIC CONDITIONS IN PRODUCTION, COMPOUNDING AND ADMINISTRATION
  5. 5. Small Volume Parenteral • According to USP : “ an injection that is packaged in containers labelled as containing 100 ml or less”
  6. 6. INTRODUCTION : • All the sterile products packaged in vials, ampoules, cartridges, syringes, bottles or any other container that is 100ml or less fall under the class of SVP. • Ophthalmic products packaged in squeezable plastic containers, although topically applied to the eye rather than administered by injection, also fall under the classification of Small Volume Injections (SVI) as long as the container size is 100ml or less. • SVP aqueous solutions can be administered by intravenous route because of local irritation. Small volume parenteral products can be formulated and packaged in several ways and include a wide variety of products like :
  7. 7. • Pharmaceutical products, Biological products, Allergenic extracts, Radiopharmaceutical products, Genetically engineered or biotechnology products, Liposome and lipid products. • An injection is a preparation intended for parenteral administration and/or for constituting or diluting a parenteral article prior to administration • Types of preparations :-  Drug injection  Drug for injection  Drug injectable emulsion  Drug injectable suspension  Drug for injectable suspension
  8. 8. Contd……. • Definition:- According to the USP 24/ NF 19 “As those preparations intended for injection through the skin or other external boundary tissue, rather than through the alimentary canal” • so that the active substance they contain are administered using gravity or force directly into a blood vessel,organ,tissue or lesion.
  9. 9. Containers: 1. Glass: • Highly Resistant Borosilicate Glass • Treated Soda lime Glass • Regular Soda Lime Glass • N.P (Non-parenteral) Glass Type 4 is not used for parenteral packaging, others all are used for parenteral packaging.
  10. 10. Contd……. 2. Plastic: Plastic containers are used but they face following problems • Permeation • Sorption • Leaching • Softening 3. Rubber: To provide closure for multiple dose vials, IV fluid bottles, plugs for disposable syringes and bulbs for ophthalmic pipettes, rubber is the material of choice. Problems associated with rubber closures are • Incompatibility • Chemical instability • Physical instability
  11. 11. Closure: • Characteristics of Good Pharmaceutical rubbers • Good ageing qualities • Satisfactory hardness and elasticity • Resistance to sterilization conditions • Impermeable to moisture and air • Examples: • Butyl Rubbers • Natural Rubbers • Neoprene Rubbers • Polyisoprene rubbers • Silicone Rubbers

  13. 13. PROCESSING OF PARENTERALS S.No. STEPS 1. Cleaning of containers, closures and equipments 2. Collection of materials 3. Preparation of parenteral products 4. Filtration 5. Filling the preparation in final containers 6. Sealing the containers 7. Sterilization 8. Evaluation of parenteral preparation 9. Labeling and packaging
  14. 14. Formulation of parenteral products • In the preparation of parenteral products, the following substances are added to make a stable preparation:  The active drug  Vehicles  Aqueous vehicle (e.g. water for injection, water for injection free from CO2 )  Non-aqueous vehicle (e.g. Ethyl alcohol, propylene glycol, almond oil)  Adjuvants  Solubilizing agents (e.g. Tweens & polysorbates)  Stabilizers & antioxidants (e.g. thiourea, ascorbic acid, tocopherol)  Buffering agents (e.g. citric acid, sodium citrate)  Antibacterial agents (e.g. benzyl alcohol, metacresol, phenol)  Chelating agents (e.g. EDTA)  Suspending, emulsifying & wetting agents (e.g. MC, CMC)  Tonicity factor (e.g. sodium chloride, dextrose)
  15. 15. Formulation of SVP : • Aqueous vehicle : • Types :- purified water, WFI, sterile WFI, bacteriostatic WFI, sterile WF Irrigation. • Preparation :- Distillation, ion exchange or reverse osmosis. • Except purified water all are pyrogen free • Non aqueous vehicle : • Because of safety purity biocompatibility  Several SVPs are marketed as oily solutions
  16. 16. The oil must be vegetable in origin (sesame, olive, or cottonseed oil). Product USP Oil Ampicillin(suspension) Vegetable Diethyl stilbestrol Sesame, cotton Epinephrine(suspension) Sesame Penicillin G procaine Vegetable (suspension)  Co solvents :- Are used to increase the stability of poorly soluble drug in water and prevent drug chemical degradation by hydrolysis. Eg. propylene glycol or in combination with ethanol and polyethylene glycol.
  17. 17. Ingredients or added substances • Antimicrobial preservatives : • Maintain the stability of the product during storage. • Phenylmercuric nitrate and Thimerosal 0.001% , Benzethonium chloride 0.01%, Benzyl alcohol 0.5- 10.0%, Phenol or cresol 0.5%, chlorobutanol 0.5%. • Buffers : • Added to maintain pH Results in stability of drug against hydrolytic degradation or enhance the solubility of drug in solution.
  18. 18. • Common buffers used in SVPs pH Buffer system Conc. % 3.5-5.7 Acetic acid-acetate 0.22 2.5-6.0 Citric acid-citrate 0.5 6.0-8.2 Phosphoric acid- 0.8-2 phosphate 8.2-10.2 Glutamic acid- 1-2 glutamate  Antioxidants : Antioxidants function by preferentially with molecular oxygen and minimizing or terminating the free radical auto-oxidation reaction. eg. Reducing agents: Ascorbic acid 0.02-0.1%, Sodium Bisulfite 0.1-0.15%, Thiourea 0.005% Blocking agents: Ascorbic acid esters 0.01-0.015%, Tocopherols 0.05-0.075%
  19. 19. • Tonicity adjusters : • Electrolytes: Nacl • Non electrolytes: Glucose, Mannitol, Glycerine • Eg. Of isotonic: Dextrose injection 5% & Nacl injection 0.9% • Some solutions are iso-osmotic but not isotonic this is because the physiology of the cell membranes must be considered. • For eg. the cell membrane of the RBC is not semi- permeable to all drugs it allows ammonium chloride, alcohol, boric acid, glycerin, propylene glycol, and urea to diffuse freely. • In the eye the cell membrane is semi permeable to boric acid and a 2% solution is an isotonic ophthalmic solution.
  20. 20. • But even though a 2% solution of boric acid is an isotonic with the eye and is iso-osmotic, it is not isotonic with blood since boric acid can freely diffuse through the RBC– and it may cause HEMOLYSIS. • Tonicity can be measurement by: osmometer • Other ingredients : • Bulking agents – for freeze dried preparations(solids) eg mannitol, lactose sucrose, dextrose. • Suspending agents – Carboxy methyl cellulose, sorbitol. • Emulsifying agents – lecithin, polysorbate 80 • Ophthalmic ointments bases – petrolatum.
  21. 21. Production facilities of parenterals • The production area where the parenteral preparation are manufactured can be divided into five sections: Clean-up area Preparation area Aseptic area Quarantine area Finishing & packaging area
  22. 22. Contd……. Clean-up area:  It is not aseptic area.  All the parenteral products must be free from foreign particles & microorganism.  Clean-up area should be withstand moisture, dust & detergent.  This area should be kept clean so that contaminants may not be carried out into aseptic area. Preparation area:  In this area the ingredients of the parenteral preparation are mixed & preparation is made for filling operation.  It is not essentially aseptic area but strict precautions are required to prevent any contamination from outside.
  23. 23. Contd……. Aseptic area:  The parenteral preparations are filtered, filled into final container & sealed should be in aseptic area.  The entry of personnel into aseptic area should be limited & through an air lock.  Ceiling, wall & floor of that area should be sealed & painted.  The air in the aseptic area should be free from fibers, dust and microorganism.  The High efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) is used for air.  UV lamps are fitted in order to maintain sterility.
  24. 24. Contd……. Quarantine area:  After filling, sealing & sterilization the parenteral product are held up in quarantine area.  Randomly samples were kept foe evaluation.  The batch or product pass the evaluation tests are transfer in to finishing or packaging area. Finishing & packaging area:  Parenteral products are properly labelled and packed.  Properly packing is essential to provide protection against physical damage.  The labelled container should be packed in cardboard or plastic container.  Ampoules should be packed in partitioned boxes
  25. 25. EVALUATION OF PARENTERAL PREPARATIONS • The finished parenteral products are subjected to the following tests, in order to maintain quality control: • A) sterility test • B)clarity test • C)leakage test • D)pyrogen test • E)assay
  26. 26. A) sterility test • It is a procedure carried out to detect and conform absence of any viable form of microbes in or on pharmacopeia preparation or product. 1) Method of sterility testing i ) METHOD 1 Membrane filtration method ii) METHOD 2 Direct inoculation method
  27. 27. Membrane filtration method (METHOD 1):  Membrane filtration Appropriate for : (advantage) • Filterable aqueous preparations • Alcoholic preparations • Oily preparations • Preparations miscible with or soluble in aqueous or oily (solvents with no antimicrobial effect)  All steps of this procedure are performed aseptically in a Class 100 Laminar Flow Hood
  28. 28. Composition of culture medium for sterility testing Fluid Thioglycollate Soybean- casein digest L- cystine 0.5gm - Sodium chloride 2.5gm 5.0gm Dextrose 5.0/5.5gm 2.3/2.5gm Pancreatic digest of casein 15.0gm 17.0gm Papaic digest of soya bean - 3.0gm Dibasic potassium phosphate - 2.5gm Granular agar (moisture<15%) 0.75gm - Yeast extract (water soluble) 5.0gm - Sodium thioglycollate or thioglycolic acid 0.5gm or 0.3ml - Resazurin (0.10%w/v fresh solution) 1.0ml - Purified water 1000ml 1000ml Components Culture medium
  29. 29. Membrane filter 0.45μ porosity Filter the test solution After filtration remove the filter Cut the filter in to two halves First halves (For Bacteria) Second halves (For Fungi) Transfer in 100 ml culture media (Fluid Thioglycollate medium) Incubate at 30-350 C for not less then 7 days Transfer in 100 ml culture media (Soyabeans-Casein Digest medium) Incubate at 20-250 C for not less then 14 days Observe the growth in the media Observe the growth in the media
  30. 30. Direct inoculation method (METHOD 2):  Suitable for samples with small volumes  volume of the product is not more than 10% of the volume of the medium  suitable method for aqueous solutions, oily liquids, ointments and creams  Direct inoculation of the culture medium suitable quantity of the preparation to be examined is transferred directly into the appropriate culture medium & incubate for not less than 14 days.
  31. 31. B)clarity test • Particulate matter is defined as unwanted mobile insoluble matter other than gas bubble present in the product. • If the particle size of foreign matter is larger than the size of R.B.C.. It can block the blood vessel. • The permit limits of particulate matter as per I.P. are follows:
  32. 32. Methods for monitoring particulate matter contamination: 1) Visual method 2) Coulter counter method 3) Filtration method 4) Light blockage method
  33. 33. C)leakage test • The sealed ampoules are subjected to small cracks which occur due to rapid temperature changes or due to mechanical shocks. Filled & sealed ampoules Dipped in 1% Methylene blue solution Under negative pressure in vacuum chamber Vacuum released colored solution enter into the ampoule Defective sealing Vials & bottles are not suitable for this test because the sealing material used is not rigid
  34. 34. D)pyrogen test  Pyrogen = “Pyro” (Greek = Fire) + “gen” (Greek = beginning).  Fever producing, metabolic by-products of microbial growth and death.  Bacterial pyrogens are called “Endotoxins”. Gram negative bacteria produce more potent endotoxins than gram + bacteria and fungi.  Endotoxins are heat stable lipopolysaccharides (LPS) present in bacterial cell walls, not present in cell-free bacterial filtrates
  35. 35. Method  Dissolve the subs being examined in, or dilute it with a pyrogen free saline solution  Warm the liquid being examined to approx. 38.5o C temp before injection  The volume of injection is NLT 0.5ml/kg & NMT 10ml/kg of body weight  Withhold water during test  Clinical thermometer is inserted into the rectum of rabbit to record body temp  2 normal reading of rectal temp are should be taken prior to the test injection at an interval of half an hr & its mean is calculated- initial temp  The solution under test is injected through an ear vein  Record the temp of each rabbit in an interval of 30 min for 3 hrs  The difference between initial temp & maximum temp is recorded- taken as response
  36. 36. Limulus amebocyte lysate [LAL] test • Limulus amebocyte lysate [LAL] test another method for the determination of pyrogenic endotoxins • In this method the test solution is combined with a cell lysate from the ameabocyte [blood cells] of horse shoe crab • Any endo toxin that might be present will be coagulated with protien fraction of the ameabocytes and results in the formation of a gel • This consider to be simple,rapid and of greater sensitivity that the rabbit test
  37. 37. E)assay • Assay is performed according to method given In the monograph of that parental preperation in the pharmacopoeia • Assay is done to check the quantity of medicament present in the parenteral preperation
