Abstract

An Approach to Enhance the Solubility of Simvastatin by Beta Cyclodextrin

In the present work, studies were carried out on preparation and evaluation of ternary inclusion complexes of Simvastatin with a view to improve its Aqueous solubility, Dissolution rate and Oral Bioavailability. The inclusion complexes of Simvastatin were prepared by kneading method using beta-cyclodextrin and hydrophilic polymers (Polyvinylpyrrolidone, Polyethylene glycol, Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose). The phase solubility studies of Simvastatin with beta-cyclodextrin and hydrophilic polymers were studied per Higuchi and Connor’s method. The prepared inclusion complexes were characterized by FTIR (Fourier transform infra-red) and DSC (Differential scanning calorimetry) studies. The prepared inclusion complexes were also evaluated for uniformity of drug content and in vitro drug release.
