Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
