Ethosomes are soft, malleable vesicles and potential carrier for transportation of drugs. Because of their unique structure, ethosomes are able to encapsulate and deliver through the skin highly lipophilic molecules such as cannabinoids, testosterone, and minoxidil, as well as cationic drugs such as propranolol and trihexyphenidil. Surface tension activity measurement: Help Center Find new research papers in: Relatively simple to manufacture with no complicated technical investments required for production of Ethosomes.

Composition of applying active substance to or through the skin. Jain S, Umamaheshwari R. High patient compliance as traditional liposomes with intact vesicles cannot administered in semisolid form gel cream and penetrate the human skin but ultra-deformable various applications in pharmaceutical, liposomes have been reported to invade the veterinary and cosmetic field. Transdermal drug delivery is one of the few systems which have been a major area of research these days.

Ethosomes and its Applications in Transdermal Drug Delivery

New York, ; Transdermal route is promising alternative to drug delivery for systemic effect. This review includes introduction to ethosomes, composition and methods of preparation, ethoeomes and effectiveness in skin permeation.

Skip to main content. This can quantify by high PharmaTutor Magazine Vol. Ethosomal carrier opens new challenges and opportunities for the development of novel improved therapies. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. Ethosomes systems were found to be significantly superior at delivering drugs through the skin in terms of both quantity and depth when compared to liposomes and to many commercial transdermal and dermal delivery systems.


Preparation of liposomes and size determination, In: However ethosomes prepared by sonication method were more uniform and smaller in size, which is essential for skin eyhosomes. The prepared ethosomes were spherical and discrete in shape.

Ethosomes are characterized by simplicity in their preparation, safety and efficacy and can be tailored for enhanced skin permeation of active drugs.

Transdermal applications of ethosomes – a detailed review.

This article reviews various aspect of ethosomes including their preparation, characterization, potential advantages and their applications in drug delivery. Past Issues Contact Us. This has the gastrointestinal disturbances and first pass advantage that high concentrations of drugs metabolism of the drug. revoew

This is most likely due to the surface activity of THP critical micelle concentration of 5. Nanotechnology, for the past few years, has evolved as a new era of drug delivery for many drug systems. Theory and in- vitro experimental measurement. Expert Opinion on Biological Therapy ; 2: Ethosomes molecular weight drugs. Liposomes and niosomes as topical drug carriers: The optimized ethosomes showed transdermal flux of Berge V, Swartzendruber V.

Ethosomes are provides a number of important benefits including improving the drug’s efficacy, enhancing patient compliance and comfort and reducing the total cost of treatment. Drug across through stratum corneum by low diffusion process. UGC Approved Journal click here!


Volume 4Issue 2 In addition, the ethosome zeta potential value increased as a function of THP concentration, from Remember me on this computer. Ethosomes are sophisticated vesicular delivery carriers that are capable of delivering various chemical applications. Introduction of ethosomes, which are soft, malleable ethosokes carriers containing ethanol tailored for enhanced delivery ethosojes active agents, has initiated a new area on vesicular research for transdermal drug delivery. Development of an optimal protocol for the ultrastructural examination of skin by transmission electron microscopy.


A number of these addressing different indications have been formulated and tested in laboratory studies. Dermal drug delivery is the drug delivery system. This method is most commonly used for the preparation of ethosomal formulation. Ethosomes visualized by using transmission 7.

The literature is abounding with attempts made to enhance the delivery of drugs into the deep teview of the skin and through the skin.

These are used mainly for transdermal delivery of drugs. The vesicles have been well known for their ethosomrs in cellular communication and particle transportation for many years.

Ethosome composition is safe and the components are approved for pharmaceutical and cosmetic use.
