Development of Silica Release Model for Intraocular Injections

Authors: Mullin JM
Conference: CRS
Software: DDDPlus™
Division: Simulations Plus


This poster reviews the development of a numerical framework within DDDPlus™ (Version 6.0, Simulations Plus, Inc.) to simulate the degradation and drug dissolution/release from silica matrix formulations within a flow-through apparatus that simulates physiologically relevant flow and volume of the vitreous. The proposed mathematical model is then used to describe the degradation of silica particles as well as drug release from vancomycin and bupivacaine.
