Formulation, Optimization and Characterization of Self Nanoemulsifying Drug Delivery System (SNEDDS) of Paclitaxel for Solubility Enhancement
In the present study, self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery systems (SNEDDS) of paclitaxel were developed with the objectives of increasing its bioavailability by enhancing its solubility and diminishing P-glycoprotein drug efflux. Ternary phase diagrams were constructed to identify the efficient nanoemulsification regions. Selected formulations from phase diagram were evaluated for various parameters. Droplet size was found to be less than 20 nm with polydispersity index and zeta potential of 0.176 and –38.1 mV respectively.In vitro release study showed upto 99% drug release from SNEDDS in approximately 3 hour. The drug release from SNEDDS was dramatically enhanced compared with that of the suspension (P < 0.05). Thus the present study indicated great potential for enhancing the solubility of paclitaxel which may lead to enhanced bioavailability through oral administration.
