Abstract [en]

The release of the hydrophobic cancer drug dasatinib from two mesoporous silica materials as drug delivery vehicles has been studied. One material is a reference 2D-hexagonal SBA-15 with the typical bimodal pore system with ordered primary mesopores and disordered intrawatI pores. The other material is a modified version of the same material where the intrawall porosity in the micropore regime has been selectively removed. Material characterization shows that, with the exception of the difference in intrawall porosity, the materials have identical properties. The drug dasatinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has been loaded, to the same extent, into the pores of both materials. The two materials give rise to very different release profiles of the drug. The presence of micropores leads to desired release properties: a high initial release of the drug, which is maintained over time. The lack of micropores also leads to a high initial release but followed by a rapid drop in the concentration of released drug, a consequence of its low solubility and hence crystallisation. We suggest that the presence of micropores in the carrier material, and the resultant kinetic release profile, leads to a stabilization of dasatinib in solution and to a sustained supersaturated level of the released drug. Our findings suggest that by controlling the mesoporous host with small variation in the textural properties, the kinetic release and crystallization behaviour of a drug can be altered. It is thus potentially possible to influence the drug post-release and thereby its bioavailability.

Abstract [en]

Poor aqueous solubility is one of the greatest barriers for new drug candidates to enter toxicology studies, let alone clinical trials. This thesis focuses on contributing to solving this problem, evaluating the oral toxicity of mesoporous silica particles, and enhancing the apparent solubility and bioavailability of active pharmaceutical ingredients in vitro and in vivo using mesoporous silica particles.

Toxicological studies in rats showed that two types of mesoporous silica particles given by oral administration were well tolerated without showing clinical signs of toxicity. Solubility enhancement, including in vivo bioavailability and in vitro intracellular activity, has been evaluated for selected drug compounds. Mesoporous silica was shown to effectively increase drug solubility by stabilizing the amorphous state of APIs, such as itraconazole (anti-fungal), dasatinib (anti-cancer), atazanavir (anti-HIV) and PA-824 (anti-tuberculosis). Itraconazole was successfully loaded into a variety of porous silica materials showing a distinct improvement in the dissolution properties in comparison to non-porous silica materials (and the free drug). Microporosity in SBA-15 particles has advantages in stabilizing the supersaturation state of dasatinib. Small pore sizes show better confinement of atazanavir, contributing to a higher dissolution of the drug compound. In the in vivo animal studies, NFM-1 loaded with atazanavir shows a four-fold increase in bioavailability compared to free crystalline atazanavir. PA-824 has a higher dissolution rate and solubility after loading into AMS-6 mesoporous particles. The loaded particles show similar antibacterial activity as the free PA-824.

This thesis aims at highlighting some of the important factors enabling the selection of adequate mesoporous structures to enhance the pharmacokinetic profile of poorly water-soluble compounds, and preparing the scientific framework for uncovering the effects of drug confinement within mesopores of varying structural properties.
