is mathematically valid as the experimental (actual) values and predicted values suggested by the full model were relatively close to each other. This systematic formulation approach will help in understanding the effect of formulation variables
and permits the arbitrary selection of a batch of tablets with improved dissolution profile after oral administration of the
selective COX-2 inhibitor.
