MICROEMULSION - A PROMISING DRUG DELIVERY STRATEGY - A REVIEW
Pavankumar K. M* and Parthiban S.
Microemulsions are clear, thermodynamically stable systems. They were used to solubilize drugs and to improve drug availability. Microemulsions have emerged as novel vehicles for drug delivery which allow sustained or controlled release for percutaneous, peroral, topical, transdermal, ocular and parenteral administration of medicaments. They offer the advantage of spontaneous formation, ease of manufacturing and scale-up, thermodynamic stability, improved drug solubilization of hydrophobic drugs and bioavailability. While microemulsions are used in several fields. this article we focus on the microemulsion in pharmaceutical use requires to understanding of the types, characters, and application of microemulsion.
Keywords: Microemulsion, advantages, disadvantages, Applications.
