RECENT DEVELOPMENT AND ACHIEVEMENTS IN SOLUBILITY AND DISSOLUTION ENHANCEMENT OF ITRACONAZOLE: A REVIEW

A drug should be available in accessible in disintegrated state before producing its therapeutic effect however; in current market more than 40%, drugs are poorly soluble in water. In view of their low aqueous solubility, those new chemical entities fail to reach market in spite of revealing potential pharmacodynamics activities. Poorly aqueous soluble drugs are connected with moderate drug absor...
