Effects of substituting Fructose by Mannitol in a pharmaceutical formulation

Schmidt, E. and Ford, S. and Dooley, N. and Elliot, M. and Halbert, G. (2010) Effects of substituting Fructose by Mannitol in a pharmaceutical formulation. Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, 62 (10). pp. 1428-1429. ISSN 0022-3573

Abstract

Pharmaceutical formulations can increase the solubility and stability of drug molecules. L-p-10 Boronphenylalanine (BPA) has previously been formulated with Fructose. Here we present a novel BPA formulation with Mannitol resulting in improved kinetic solubility along with the removal of possible Fructose related intolerance reactions.
