A controlled porosity osmotic pump system for poorly water soluble drugs has been developed using sulfobutyl ether-beta-cyclodextrin sodium salt, (SBE)7m-beta-CD, which can act as both a solubilizing and an osmotic agent. The release of testosterone, a poorly water soluble drug (0.039 mg/ml at 37 degrees C), was evaluated using a new model device. The effect of (SBE)7m-beta-CD as the solubilizing and osmotic pump agent was compared with hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HP-beta-CD), a neutral cyclodextrin, and a sugar mixture (osmotic agent only). Testosterone release from the device was significantly faster with (SBE)7m-beta-CD than with HP-beta-CD or the sugar mixture. The solubility of testosterone in the device increased to 76.7 mg/ml through complexation with (SBE)7m-beta-CD in the imbibed water. It appears that testosterone release from the device in the presence of (SBE)7m-beta-CD was mainly due to osmotic pumping while for HP-beta-CD the major contribution appears to be due to diffusion. In the case of the sugar mixture, testosterone was poorly released, presumably due to the absence of a solubilizer. Therefore, it was concluded that (SBE)7m-beta-CD provides novel properties for the development of controlled- porosity osmotic pump tablets for poor solubility drugs.
