The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of Sucro Ester 7 (sucrose distearate) as additive for preparing sustained release suppositories of tiaprofenic acid. Suppocire AIM (semi-synthetic glycerides) was used as suppository base and formulations were prepared containing different ratios of sugar ester: Suppocire AIM. Content uniformity, disintegration time and in vitro release characteristics of suppositories were investigated. Significant decrease in the extent of drug release was observed with the increase in the content of sugar ester, which was due to the longer disintegration time of suppositories.
