Cyclodextrins are useful functional excipients that have enjoyed widespread attention and use.

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 cycloxextrins drug solubilization by cyclodextrins. The mechanism for this solubilization is rooted in the ability of cyclodextrin to form non-covalent dynamic inclusion complexes in solution.


Considerations In Using Cyclodextrins As Solubilizers For Early Toxicology Studies

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

Crandall, MS, Velesco Pharma Early stage drug development can frequently be hindered by compound solubility and the need to deliver large doses to animals with as little vehicle toxicity as possible. Modified Cyclodextrins are highly water-soluble themselves.

A number of cyclodextrin-based products have reached the market based on their ability to camouflage undesirable physicochemical properties. This pharmaceutica and the exposure of the hydrophilic outer Cyclodextrin surface allow CD molecules to solubilize some poorly soluble lipophilic compounds.

For early toxicology studies, this is an added bonus to using CDs, but usually not a pivotal reason for their use. I agree to the Terms and Privacy Statement.

Considerations In Using Cyclodextrins As Solubilizers For Early Toxicology Studies

Company Name Velesco Pharmaceutical Services. Cyclodextris have a powerful tool in the Cyclodextrin CD molecules; however there are several complicating factors that must be considered. Substitutions are typically hydroxypropyl, although many other options are available. Cyclodextrins are cyclic oligosaccharide molecules of at least 6 subunits derived from starch, which form structures with lipophilic inner cavities and hydrophilic outer surfaces.
