    Abstract

    The aim of this work is to: (1) Determine the viable processing window of HPMC-Affinisol polymer to use in hot melt extrusion. (2) Use this polymer for oral formulations with Paracetamol over a wide range of physical grades and determine the effect of API particle size on the nature of the resulting formulated mixtures. (3) Assess if HME can be used to produce a consistent output with wide ranges in physical input API properties.
