Polymers have been recognized to have the function of sustaining the supersaturated state of drugs. This function has been widely studied because it will improve the absorption of poorly water-soluble drugs. However, clarifying the mechanism of this sustaining pharmaceutical effect (parachute effect) on the supersaturated state as a result of polymers is remains a task. We have found that oxybuprocaine, which is a small molecule, has a parachute effect on the supersaturated state (due to an anhydrate-to-hydrate transformation) of piroxicam-anhydrate in the aqueous phase. We consider that oxybuprocaine controls the environment of the solution and the network of polymers is unnecessary. Therefore, oxybuprocaine not only becomes a clue for elucidating the essential mechanism of the parachute effect of polymers but also enables us to rationally propose a new type of solubilizer.
