PARENTERAL DRUG DELIVERY :  PARENTERAL DRUG DELIVERY Mr. Prashant L. Pingale School of Pharmacy & Technology Management, NMIMS, Shirpur Campus Mail ID: Slide 2: Definitions related to the topic: Parenteral Products Sterilization & Sterile Product Pyrogen SVP LVP Light Resistant Containers Well closed containers Tightly closed containers Single dose container Multiple dose container Hermetically sealed container Slide 3: PARENTERALS para: outside enteron: intestine (i.e. beside the intestine) These are the preparations which are given other than oral routes. Injections: These are Sterile, Pyrogen free preparations intended to be administered parenterally (outside alimentary tract). Slide 4: Why Parenteral? Parenteral Route Is Used bcoz 1) Rapid action 2) Oral route can not be used 3) Not effective except as injection 4) Many new drugs particularly those derived from new development in biotechnologically can only be given by parenteral coz they are inactivated in GIT if given orally. 5) New drugs require to maintain potency & specificity so that they are given by parenteral. Slide 5: Advantages: Quick onset of action Suitable for the drugs which are not administered by oral route Useful for unconscious or vomiting patients. Duration of action can be prolonged by modifying formulation. Suitable for nutritive like glucose & electrolyte. Suitable for the drugs which are inactivated in GIT or HCl (GI fluid) Slide 6: Disadvantages: Once injected cannot be controlled (retreat) Injections may cause pain at the site of injection Only trained person is required If given by wrong route, difficult to control adverse effect Difficult to save patient if overdose Sensitivity or allergic reaction at the site of injection Requires strict control of sterility & non pyrogenicity than other formulation. Slide 7: Necessities of Parenteral preparations: Sterility (must) Pyrogen (must) Free from particulate matter (must) Clarity (must) Stability (must) Isotonicity (should) Solvents or vehicles used must meet special purity and other standards.

Information for the formulation skills to the pharmacist. Slide 55: TPN stands for Total Parenteral Nutrition. This is a complete form of nutrition, containing protein, sugar, fat and added vitamins and minerals as needed for each individual. Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) may be defined as provision of nutrition for metabolic requirements and growth through the parenteral route. Total Parenteral Nutrition Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN)(Intravenous Nutrition) : Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN)(Intravenous Nutrition) TPN refers to the provision of all required nutrients, exclusively by the Intravenous route. Parenteral Nutrition (PN)can be used to supplement ordinary or tube feeding. Slide 57: Components of TPN solutions: (1) Protein as crystalline amino acids. (2) Fats as lipids. (3) Carbohydrate as glucose. (4) Electrolytes–Sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium. (5) Metals/Trace elements–Zinc, copper, manganese, chromium, selenium. (6) Vitamins A, C, D, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, biotin, choline and folic acid. Slide 58: TPN might be necessary if: a patient is severely undernourished, and needs to have surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy; a patient suffers from chronic diarrhea and vomiting; a baby's gut is too immature; a patient's (their "gastrointestinal tract") is paralysed, for example after major surgery. Why it is necessary? Slide 59: Normal Diet TPN Protein…………Amino Acids Carbohydrates…Dextrose Fat……………..Lipid Emulsion Vitamins………Multivitamin Infusion Minerals………Electrolytes & Trace Elements Nutritional Requirements : Nutritional Requirements Amino acids Glucose Lipid Minerals Vitamins Water and electrolytes Trace elements Total Parenteral NutritionElectrolytes : Total Parenteral NutritionElectrolytes Slide 62: TPN is normally used following surgery, when feeding by mouth or using the gut is not possible, When a person's digestive system cannot absorb nutrients due to chronic disease, or, alternatively, if a person's nutrient requirement cannot be met by enteral feeding (tube feeding) and supplementation. When is it necessary? Slide 63: Short-term TPN may be used if a person's digestive system has shut down (for instance by Peritonitis), and they are at a low enough weight to cause concerns about nutrition during an extended hospital stay. Long-term TPN is occasionally used to treat people suffering the extended consequences of an accident or surgery. Most controversially, TPN has extended the life of a small number of children born with nonexistent or severely birth-deformed guts. Slide 64: GENERAL INDICATIONS Patient who can’t eat Patient who won’t eat Patient who shouldn’t eat Patient who can’t eat enough “If the gut works, use it.” Slide 65: NOMENCLATURE TPN: Total Parenteral Nutrition IVH: Intravenous Hyperalimentation TNA: Total Nutrient Admixture TPN: Total Parenteral Nutrition 3-In-1 Admixture All-In-One Admixture PPN: Peripheral Parenteral Admixture Indications for TPN : Indications for TPN Short-term use Bowel injury /surgery Bowel disease Severe malnutrition Nutritional preparation prior to surgery. Malabsorption - bowel cancer Long-term use Prolonged Intestinal Failure Crohn’s Disease Bowel resection Slide 67: The preferred method of delivering TPN is with a medical infusion pump. A sterile bag of nutrient solution, between 500 mL and 4 L is provided. The pump infuses a small amount (0.1 to 10 mL/hr) continuously in order to keep the vein open. Feeding schedules vary, but one common regimen ramps up the nutrition over a few hours, levels off the rate for a few hours, and then ramps it down over a few more hours, in order to simulate a normal set of meal times. Slide 68: The nutrient solution consists of water, glucose, salts, amino acids, vitamins and (more controversially) sometimes emulsified fats. Long term TPN patients sometimes suffer from lack of trace nutrients or electrolyte imbalances. Because increased blood sugar commonly occurs with TPN, insulin may also be added to the infusion. Often though, an insignificant amount of insulin is added, sometimes 10 units or less in 2 liters of TPN. In actuality, the patient will probably get less than that. Occasionally, other drugs are added as well, sometimes unnecessarily. Complications of TPN : Complications of TPN Sepsis Air embolism Clotted catheter line Catheter displacement Fluid overload Hyperglycaemia Rebound Hypoglycaemia Slide 70: Dialysis is the process in which substances are separated from one another due to their difference in diffusibility (distribution) thr’ membrane. The fluids used in dialysis are known as dialysis fluids. DIALYSIS FLUIDS Slide 71: General uses : Renal failure waste product is removed Maintain electrolytes Also called as haemodialysis or intraperitoneal dialysis Transplantation of kidney Poisoning cases Slide 72: Haemodialysis: To remove toxins from blood In haemodialysis, the blood from artery is passed thr’ artificial dialysis membrane, bathed in dialysis fluid. The dialysis membrane is permeable to urea, electrolytes & dextrose but not to plasma proteins & lipids So excess of urea is passed out from blood thr’ dialysis fluid. Slide 73: After dialysis blood is returned back to the body circulation thr’ vein. A kidney unit may require more than 1200 litres of solution / week. So haemodialysis fluid is prepared in conc. Form then it is diluted with deionised water or dist. water before use. Slide 74: Composition of Concentrated Haemodialysis Fluid BPC Dilute 1 liter of conc. solution with 39 liters of water to make 40 litres.

Semi-quantitative test (method B) quantification of bacterial endotoxins in the test solution by titration to an end-point. procedure is similar as in the limit test The results are expressed as concentration of endotoxin as less, equal or greater than  (labeled lysate sensitivity). Turbidimetric technique (Methods C, F) : Turbidimetric technique (Methods C, F) photometric test to measure the increase in turbidity end-point test (Method F): quantitative relationship between the endotoxin concentration and the turbidity (absorbance or transmission) of the reaction mixture at the end of an incubation period. kinetic test (Method C): a method to measure either the time (onset time) needed for the reaction mixture to reach a predetermined absorbance, or the rate of turbidity development. Chromogenic technique (Methods D, E) : Chromogenic technique (Methods D, E) measuring the chromophore released from a suitable chromogenic peptide by the reaction of endotoxins with the lysate end-point test (Method E): is based on the quantitative relationship between the endotoxin concentration and the quantity of chromophore released at the end of an incubation period kinetic test (Method D): a method to measure either the time (onset time) needed for the reaction mixture to reach a predetermined absorbance, or the rate of color development Instead of the conclusion - Guidelines for test for bacterial endotoxins : Instead of the conclusion - Guidelines for test for bacterial endotoxins the absence of bacterial endotoxins in a product implies the absence of pyrogenic component if you wish to replace rabbit test you should prove that you don’t have interfering factors if rabbit pyrogen test is replaced by endotoxin test, the last one should be validated methods from C to F require more instrumentation, but they are easier to automate test for bacterial endotoxins is preferred over the test for pyrogens Advantages of LAL test : Advantages of LAL test Fast - 60 minutes vs. 180 minutes Greater Sensitivity Less Variability Much Less False Positives Much Less Expensive Alternative to Animal Model cheaper, more accurate than other is performed in the pharmaceutical laboratory specific for endotoxins of gram-negative origin particularly useful for: Radiopharmaceuticals and cytotoxic agents Products with marked pharmacological or toxicological activity in the rabbit (e.g. insulin) Blood products which sometime give misleading results in the rabbit Water for injection where LAL test is potentially more stringent and readily applied Particulate Matter Monitoring : Particulate Matter Monitoring Definition: : Definition: Unwanted mobile insoluble matter other than gas bubbles present in the given product. It may be dangerous when the particle size is larger than R.B.C. & may block the blood vessel. This type of products are immediately rejected from the batch. Slide 141: The limit test for particulate matter is prescribed in I.P. 1996 (A- 125) Applicable for: 100 ml or more volume containers of single dose LV given by IV infusion Not applicable for: Multidose injections Single dose SVP Injectable solutions constituted from sterile solids Permitted limits of particulate matter : Permitted limits of particulate matter Particle size in micrometer Max.No.of particles (equal to or larger than) per ml 50 25 5 50 Nil Sources of particulate matter : Sources of particulate matter Contamination Contaminant Intrinsic contamination: Originally present in products e.g. Barium ions may react or leach with Sulphur ion which are already present in formulation may produce barium sulphate crystals. Slide 144: Extrinsic contamination: Material comes from outside or environment e.g. coming off the material from body & cloths of person Entry of particle from ceiling , walls & furniture May be in the form of cotton, glass rubber, plastics, tissues, insect fragments, bacterial contamination, dust, papers etc… Methods of monitoring particulate matter contamination : Methods of monitoring particulate matter contamination Visual method Coulter counter method Filtration method Light blockage method Slide 146: Visual method: Simple method Filled container are examined against strong illuminated screen by holding neck & rotating it slowly or inverted it to keep out the foreign matter. Coulter counter method: It is used for detection of particles less than 0.1 micrometer in diameter. Based on electrode resistance. Sample is evaluated between two electrode & if particle found the resistance of electrode is increased. Slide 147: Filtration method: It is used for counting the particles in hydraulic fluids. Sample passed thr’ filter Material is collected on filter Evaluated under microscope. Disadvantage: Skilled & trained person is required Light blockage method: Used for hydraulic oils Allows stream of fluid under test to pass between a bright white light source & photoiodide sensor. Identification of Particulate Matter : Identification of Particulate Matter Microscopy X- ray powder diffraction Mass microscopy Microchemical tests Electron microscopy etc… Significance of Particulate Matter monitoring : Significance of Particulate Matter monitoring Its presence may causes: Septicemia Fever & blockage of blood vessels Quality of product may affect Slide 150: As per USP LVP : NMT 50 particles/ ml (size 10 or more than 10 micrometer) & 5 particles/ ml (size more than 25 micrometer) SVP: 10,000 particles/ container of size 10 micrometer or greater & NMT 1000 particles/ container greater than 25 micrometer.
