The etodolac based modified karaya gum (MKG) gel was developed using 32 factorial design to enhance the therapeutic effect of gel to treat inflammation. Gels were prepared with different concentrations of MKG and arachis oil using 32 factorial design. The percentage of drug content was found in the range of 96 to 99%, viscosity results shown in the range of 842 CPS to 2560 CPS and in vitro drug release was found to be in range of 38% to 98% respectively. Whereas ex-vivo permeation studies of etodolac gel and pure etodolac solution across the burned pig skin were shown 72% and 42% respectively. The drug and excipient compatibility studies by FTIR confirms that, there is no major functional group change was observed. The results concluded that, the combination of MKG and arachis oil were improved the penetration of etodolac through burned pig skin thereby the combination of PE and oil successfully enhanced the therapeutic effect of etodolac.
