Abstract In the present study, the possible interactions between celecoxib and some excipients (colloidal silicon dioxide (Aerosil), microcrystalline cellulose (Avicel PH 102), lactose anhydrous, magnesium stearate, cross-povidone and talc) were evaluated by examining the pure drug or drug-excipient powder mixtures which were stored under different conditions (25 +/- 2 degrees C, 60\% RH +/- 5\% RH or 40 + 2 degrees C, 75\% RH +/- 5\% RH) and different period (30 or 60 days) using DSC, FT-IR and HPLC. In order to investigate the possibility of celecoxib-excipient interaction in aqueous medium, dispersions of the pure drug or drug in physical powder mixture (1:1 w/w) in water (1\%, w/v) were also prepared and evaluated by FT-IR and HPLC at day 0 and day 7 (40 +/- 2 degrees C). The interaction between celecoxib and magnesium stearate or colloidal silicon dioxide were determined in the aqueous dispersions by FT-IR. Different tablet formulations with or without excipients tested were prepared, and assessed for drug dissolution and permeability.
