ABSTRACT

The objective of the present research work is to formulate and evaluate itraconazole antifungal gel. Itraconazole is an imidazole derivative and used for the treatment of local and systemic fungal infection. The oral activity of Itraconazole is not much proven to be efficient as it has many side effects. This formulation is made for better patient compliance and to reduce the dose of the drug. The gel was formulated by changing the polymer ratio. Various formulation (F1, F2, F3, F4) were developed by using a suitable polymer (carbopol 971p and noveonAA1). The formulation was evaluated for, spreadability, extrudability and viscosity in vitro drug release study. Viscosity studies of various formulations revealed that formulation F4 was better to compare to others. From among all the developed formulation, F4 shows better drug diffusion, did good Rheological properties. pH of the F4 formulation is sufficient enough to treat the skin infections. Results indicated that the concentration of carbopol 971p and noveon AA1 significantly affects drug release and rheological properties of the gel. It was concluded that formulation F4 was the best formulation among this formulation. Hence formulation F4 has shown the better results compared to other batches.

Keywords: Itraconazole, carbopol 971 p, noveon AA1, antifungal.
