Abstract

Nanoemulsions, extensively investigated for curing many ailments, also represent a promising approach for delivering therapeutics to the oral cavity. The inherent advantages of these safe submicron drug delivery systems formulated using generally regarded as safe (GRAS) excipients approved by the Food and Drug Administration include improved bioavailability associated with a reduction of particle size, enhanced solubility, improved penetration and improved stability of the therapeutic entrapped, high loading efficiency, controlled drug release, suitability for laboratory scale and comparatively inexpensive formulation and reduced chances of instabilities such as separation, creaming and flocculation under the influence of gravity.[1,3] Their transparency and fluidity also enhances the esthetic appeal of the product.[4] The nanoemulsions have been reported to have broad biocidal and sporicidal efficacy against a plethora by microorganisms including bacteria, viruses and fungi by disrupting their outer membranes.[5,8] Read more...
