ABSTRACT:
The objective of the present study was to formulate solid dispersions (SDs) of simvastatin (SIM) to improve the aqueous solubility, dissolution rate and to facilitate faster onset of action. Simvastatin is a BCS class II drug having low solubility and therefore low oral bioavailability. In the present study, SDs of simvastatin different drug-carrier ratios was prepared by kneading method. The results showed that simvastatin solubility and dissolution rate was enhanced with polymer PEG4000 in the ratio 1:10 due to increase in wetting property (or) may be due to change in crystallinity of the drug.
