Pharmadeutical solubilizing attribute may include the ability to form non-inclusion based complexes, the formation of aggregates and related domains and the ability of cyclodextrins to form and stabilize supersaturated drug solutions.

Considerations In Using Cyclodextrins As Solubilizers For Early Toxicology Studies

This interaction and the exposure of the solubilizerw outer Cyclodextrin surface allow CD molecules to solubilize some poorly soluble lipophilic compounds. Get the latest articles from Outsourced Pharma delivered to your inbox. Cyclodextrins are useful functional excipients that have enjoyed widespread attention and use.


Company Name Velesco Pharmaceutical Services. Modified Cyclodextrins are highly water-soluble themselves.

The basis for this popularity from a pharmaceutical standpoint, is the ability of these materials to interact with poorly water-soluble drugs and drug candidates resulting in an increase in their apparent water solubility.

For early toxicology studies, this is an added bonus to using CDs, but usually not a pivotal reason for their use. Cyclodextrins are cyclic oligosaccharide molecules of at least 6 subunits derived from starch, which form structures with lipophilic pharmaceuttical cavities and hydrophilic outer surfaces.

Cyclodextrins as pharmaceutical solubilizers.

Formulators have a powerful tool in the Cyclodextrin Pharaceutical molecules; however there are several complicating factors that must be considered. This review is intended to give a general background to the use of cyclodextrin as solubilizers as well as highlight kinetic and thermodynamic tools and parameters useful in the study of drug solubilization by cyclodextrins. Crandall, MS, Velesco Pharma Early stage drug development can frequently be pharmaceutixal by compound solubility and the need to deliver large doses to animals with as little vehicle toxicity as possible.


Substitutions are typically hydroxypropyl, although many other options are available. A number of cyclodextrin-based products have reached the market based on their ability to camouflage undesirable physicochemical properties.

The mechanism for this solubilization is rooted in the ability of cyclodextrin to form non-covalent dynamic inclusion complexes in solution. Company Profile Email Us. I agree to the Terms and Privacy Statement.
