Ethosomes and its Applications in Transdermal Drug Delivery

Drug across through stratum corneum by low diffusion process. Drug formulation with elastic vesicle or skin enhances vesicles. Etho sources are the ethanolic phospholipids vesicles and which are having higher rate of penetration through the skin. The purpose of writing this Review on ethosome drug focus on the Ethosomes including their mechanism of penetration.

Transdermal drug delivery system was ethosoems into existence by more than 30 years ago. Ethosomes are the ethanolic ethoosmes vesicles.

These are used mainly etjosomes transdermal delivery of drugs. Ethosomes have higher penetration rate through the skin as compared to liposomes hence these can be used widely in place of liposomes. Ethosomes enhanced skin permeation, improved drug delivery, increased drug entrapment efficiency etc. The skin covers a total surface area of Transdermal drug delivery offers many approximately 1.

A Review on Transdermal Drug Delivery System by Ethosomes | PharmaTutor Edu Labs –

Dermal drug delivery is the drug delivery system. This has the gastrointestinal disturbances and first pass advantage that high concentrations of drugs metabolism of the drug.

The traditional can be localized at the site of action, reducing transdermal drug delivery systems involve a the systemic side effects.


Transdermal drug patch, in which the drug permeates through delivery uses the skin as an alternative route for various layers of skin, via a passive diffusion the delivery of systemically acting drugs.


Ethosomes are novel carrier system used reeview However, this limits the basic potential of these delivery of drugs having low penetration systems, as stratum corneum is the most through the biological membrane mainly skin.

Ethosomes molecular weight drugs. To overcome the are lipid vesicles containing phospholipids, stratum corneum barrier, various mechanisms rreview ethanol and isopropyl alcohol in have been investigated, including use of How to cite this article: Liposomes, permeability of drug through the stratum niosomes, transferosomes and ethosomes also corneum barrier. Structure of Ethosome Fig No. This method is most commonly used for the preparation of ethosomal formulation.

Ethosomes visualized by using transmission 7. Size and zeta potential: Surface tension activity measurement: This can quantify by high PharmaTutor Magazine Vol. The trans alcoholic like ethanol, isopropyl alcohol as appendage penetration route plays a minor role penetration enhancers in transdermal delivery from liposomes.

In with regard to penetration through skin, no the penetration enhancing mechanism after Difference reviiew be found between hairless reviiew application of vesicles, changes in the ultra- hairy guinea pigs. Also, vesicular delivery structures of the intercellular lipids were seen through shunts was excluded on the basis that suggesting a penetration enhancing effect.

It delivers penetrate through intact healthy stratum large molecules such as peptides protein corneum, instead they dissolve and form a unit molecules. Non-invasive drug delivery carriers [14, 30] membrane structure. In intact vesicular of ethosomes that enable to drug delivery skin penetration mechanism, Fig. High patient compliance as traditional liposomes with intact revew 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.
