. The aim of the presented work was to evaluate the effect of sodium alginate (SA)/chitosan (CH) ratio and CH molecular weight on drug release and swelling kinetics of SA-CH directly compressed matrices.
. Matrices containing 200 mg of naproxen were prepared by direct compression of mixtures of the drug, SA and one of the following types The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
