Description Oral drug delivery is the most widely utilized route of administration among all the routes that have been explored for systemic delivery of drugs via pharmaceutical products of different dosage form. Oral route is considered most natural, uncomplicated, convenient and safe due to its ease of administration, patient acceptance and cost-effective manufacturing process. Gastroretentive drug delivery system was developed in pharmacy field and drug retention for a prolonged time has been achieved. The goal of this study was to formulate and in-vitro evaluate Ciprofloxacin HCl controlled release matrix floating tablets. Ciprofloxacin HCl floating matrix tablets were prepared by wet granulation method using two polymers such as HPMC K100M (hydrophilic polymer) and HPMC K15M. All the Evaluation parameters were within the acceptable limits. FTIR spectral analysis showed that there was no interaction between the drug and polymers. In-vitro dissolution study was carried out using USP dissolution test apparatus (paddle type) at 50 rpm. The test was carried out at 37 ± 0.5 0C in 900ml of the 0.1 N HCl buffer as the medium for eight hours. HPMC K100M shows a prolonged release when compared to HPMC K15M. These findings indicated that HPMC K100M can be used to develop novel gastroretentive controlled release drug delivery systems with the double advantage of controlled drug release at GIT pH. On comparing the major criteria in evaluation such as preformulation and in vitro drug release characteristics, the formulation F8 was selected as the best formulation, as it showed the drug content as 99±0.4% and swelling index ratio was 107.14, and in-vitro drug released 61.31±0.65% up to 8 hours. Results indicated that controlled Ciprofloxacin HCl release was directly proportional to the concentration of HPMC K100M and the release of drug followed non-Fickian diffusion. Based on all the above evaluation parameters it was concluded that the formulation batch F8 was found to be best formulation among the formulations F1 to F8 were prepared.
