This is in agreement with the study of Perfect and Kay (1994) who used air-dry aggregates and the Weibull model to estimate friability. Munkholm and Kay (2002) also found higher values of [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] using aggregates with different moisture status and scaling of aggregate strength with aggregate size to estimate friability.
Therefore, MPFs structure is difficult to be damaged during the friability test process.
Friability Test: Friability measures the sand's surface brittleness and abrasion resistance on mold edges, corners, parting lines and abraded mold surfaces developed during molding, core setting and handling.
In our case surgical management with for example pneumonectomy was deemed unsuitable owing to the expected dense adhesion and pulmonary vasculature friability after CCRT and the high risk of vascular and bronchial stump rupture even after successful surgery outweighs any potential benefits.
Ten tablets were weighed and placed into a tablet friability tester (Model CS-1, Vanguard Pharmaceutical Machinery Inc., USA).
The mechanical and release properties of paracetamol tablets containing the extracted celluloses and two standard disintegrants- corn starch B.P and microcrystalline cellulose - were determined using crushing strength friability disintegration time the time taken for 50% (T50) and 90% (T90) drug dissolution as assessment parameter.
