Development and Optimization of Self-emulsifying Drug Delivery Systems (SEDDS) for Enhanced Dissolution and Permeability of Rosuvastatin
Rosuvastatin calcium is commonly used statin for treatment of dyslipidemia. It has low bioavailability. The aim of this study was to develop new rosuvastatin calcium self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS) as an alternative formulation and to evaluate the permeability of rosuvastatin calcium SEDDS by using Caco-2 cells. Rosuvastatin calcium SEDDSs were developed by using pseudo ternary phase diagram and characterized by using heating cooling cycle, robustness to dilution, stability and in vitro drug release and permeability. The permeability studies of rosuvastatin calcium SEDDS (Papp (A→B) for F1-RS=1.492×10-5±0.413×10-5 and Papp (A→B) for F2-RS=1.254×10-5±0.19×10-5) across Caco-2 cells showed that permeability value from apical to basolateral was higher than permeability value of commercial formulation (Papp (A→B) =7.13×10-5±0.668×10-5). In conclusion, SEDDS as a drug carrier may be used as an effective and alternative hyperlipidemia therapy for oral delivery of rosuvastatin calcium.

More about this publication?
- The aim of Current Drug Delivery is to publish peer-reviewed articles, short communications, short and in-depth reviews in the rapidly developing field of drug delivery. Modern drug research aims to build in delivery properties of a drug at the design phase, however in many cases this ideal cannot be met and the development of delivery systems becomes as important as the development as the drugs themselves.
The journal aims to cover the latest outstanding developments in drug and vaccine delivery employing physical, physico-chemical and chemical methods. The drugs include a wide range of bioactive compounds from simple pharmaceuticals to peptides, proteins, nucleotides, nucleosides and sugars. The journal will also report progress in the fields of transport routes and mechanisms including efflux proteins and multi-drug resistance.
The journal is essential for all pharmaceutical scientists involved in drug design, development and delivery.
