Abstract

Objective: Much attention has been given to lipid-based formulation with particular emphasis on self-micro emulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) to improve the solubility and oral bioavailability of lipophilic as well as hydrophilic drugs.

Method: Various reports were taken from review or research articles published in journals, data from various books and other online available literature.

Conclusion: This method is suitable for all BCS class drugs where resulting emulsification gives faster dissolution and absorption rate.

Keywords: SMEDDS, solubility, bioavailability, lipid-based formulation, emulsification.
