Source: From Ref. 23. 12 Young et al. ethanol solution), the induced surface cavities resulted in a decrease in FPF of blended albuterol sulphate. It is interesting to note, however, that the addition of fine lactose, approximated as 5% (between 5 and 10 mm), rectified this reduction. In other recent studies, the macroscopic etching of commercial grade lactose via mixing in an ethanolic solution (25–27) or via temperature controlled surface dissolution (28) has been shown to improve the aerosolization of various micronized APIs.

The addition of other excipients, such as “blow-out” fluorocarbons, during the spray drying of formulations results in porous particles with reduced density and contact area (81). This approach was used in Nektars Figure 13 AFM topography image of spray-dried bovine serum albumin particles prepared using methodologies described by Chew et al. (A) Smooth particulates and (B) corrugated particulates. Source: From Refs. 79,80. Advances in Pulmonary Therapy 21 PulmoSphereÒ technology. In a recent study, dry powder budesonide PulmoSpheres were reported to exhibit improved in vivo respiratory deposition when compared to a conventional micronized formulation (14).

Again in these studies, it is suggested that a reduced carrier roughness resulted in increased fine particle drug. Furthermore, it is interesting to note that during these investigations, another important factor influencing aerosolization performance was noticed; the presence of fines. Apart from direct morphological and surface roughness parameters, one of the key factors that have been suggested to influence aerosolization performance of adhered drug particulates is the presence of similar sized excipient fines, for example, particles with a volume median diameter <5 mm.
