ABSTRACT:
Objective: Solid self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) of Gefitinib was aimed at overcoming the problems of poor solubility and bioavailability. Methodology: The formulation strategy included selection of oil phase based on saturated solubility studies and surfactant and co-surfactant screening on the basis of their emulsification ability. Ternary phase diagrams were constructed to identify the self-emulsifying region using a dilution method. The prepared formulations of SMEDDS were evaluated for their drug content, loading efficiency, morphology, globule size determination. Results: The formulation containing gefitinib (25 mg), oleic acid (20% w/w), tween 80 (30% w/w), propylene glycol (10% w/w) and water (40% w/w) was concluded to be optimized. The optimized SMEDDS and solid-SMEDDS exhibited 84.4 % in vitro drug release up to 60 min, which was significantly higher than that of the pure drug. Solid-SMEDDS may be considered as a better solid dosage form as solidified formulations are more ideal than liquid ones in terms of its stability. Conclusion: These results suggest the potential use of SMEDDS and solid-SMEDDS to improve the dissolution and hence oral bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drugs like Gefitinib through oral route.
