Solid dispersion technique has been developed many years for improving solubility of water-insoluble drugs, aiming to achieve a better oral bioavailability. However, this technique exhibits many inconveniences when used for large-scale tableting procedures. The objective of current research work was to develop cilnidipine solid dispersions (SDs) to improve the dissolution behaviors of this water-insoluble drug. Moreover, an innovative granulation method was designed to simplify the traditional tableting technology used in solid dispersion technique. Three different kinds of polymers, polyethylene glycol (PEG), polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and poloxamer, were used as carriers to prepare solid dispersions. The interactions in the solid state were characterized by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and FT-IR spectroscopy. The designed granulation method was employed to prepare solid dispersion tablets and the formulation was optimized through investigating the dissolution behaviors. The results indicated PEG solid dispersion showed the best effect both on physical characterizations and dissolution studies. Furthermore, all type of solid dispersions significantly improved the dissolution rates when compared to pure drug and its corresponding physical mixture (PM). The solid dispersion tablets prepared in simplified tableting method exhibited better operability, stability and dissolution behavior than the tablets prepared in traditional ways, which brought more opportunities to solid dispersion technique for industrial production.

The objective of the present study was to formulate a microemulsion system for oral administration to improve the solubility and bioavailability of fenofibrate. Various formulations were prepared using different ratios of oils, surfactants and co-surfactants (S&CoS). Pseudo-ternary phase diagrams were constructed to evaluate the microemulsification existence area. The formulations were characterized by solubility of the drug in the vehicles, mean droplet size, and drug content. The stability was also investigated by store for 3 months under 4 °C, 25 °C and 40 °C and diluted 100 times for 3 days. The optimal formulation consists of 25% Capryol 90, 27.75% Cremophore EL, 9.25% Transcutol P and 38% water (w/w), with a maximum solubility of fenofibrate up to ∼40.96 mg/mL. The microemulsion was physicochemical stable and mean droplet size was about 32.5-41.7 nm. The pharmacokinetic study was performed in dogs and compared with Lipanthy® capsule. The result showed that microemulsion has significantly increased the C max and AUC compared to that of Lipanthy® capsule (p < 0.05). The oral bioavailability of fenofibrate microemulsions (FEN-MEs) in ME-3 and ME-4 were 1.63 and 1.30-fold higher than that of the capsule. Our results indicated that the microemulsions could be used as an effective formulation for enhancing the oral bioavailability of fenofibrate. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

A new microemulsions system of curcumin (CUR-MEs) was successfully developed to improve the solubility and bioavailability of curcumin. Several formulations of the microemulsions system were prepared and evaluated using different ratios of oils, surfactants, and co-surfactants (S&CoS). The optimal formulation, which consists of Capryol 90 (oil), Cremophor RH40 (surfactant), and Transcutol P aqueous solution (co-surfactant), could enhance the solubility of curcumin up to 32.5 mg/mL. The pharmacokinetic study of microemulsions was performed in rats compared to the corresponding suspension. The stability of microemulsions after dilution was excellence. Microemulsions have significantly increased the Cmax and area under the curve (AUC) in comparison to that in suspension (p < 0.05). The relative bioavailability of curcumin in microemulsions was 22.6-fold higher than that in suspension. The results indicated that the CUR-MEs could be used as an effective formulation for enhancing the oral bioavailability of curcumin. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

Objective(s): The objective of this study was to find a stable microemulsion vehicle for transdermal delivery of ibuprofen to improve the skin permeability.Materials and Methods: Microemulsion was prepared using different sorts of oils, surfactants and co-surfactants. Pseudo-ternary phase diagrams were used to evaluate the microemulsion domain. The effects of oleic acid and surfactant mixture on skin permeation of ibuprofen were evaluated with excised skins.Results: The optimum formulation F3 consisting of 6% oleic acid, 30% Cremophor RH40/Transcutol P (2:1, w/w) and 59% water phase, showed a high permeation rate of 42.98 μg/cm2/hr. The mean droplet size of microemulsion was about 43 nm and no skin irritation signs were observed on the skin of rabbits.Conclusion: These results indicated that this novel microemulsion is a useful formulation for the transdermal delivery of ibuprofen. © 2014, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences.
