Liposomes, permeability of drug through the stratum niosomes, transferosomes and ethosomes also corneum barrier. Various application in Pharmaceutical, Veterinary, Cosmetic field. Journal of Control Release ; Theory and in- vitro experimental measurement. Past Issues Contact Us.

Ethosomes were designed to enhance the delivery of drugs into the deep layers of the skin and through the skin. To provide continuous drug infusion through an intact skin, several transdermal therapeutic systems have been developed for topical application onto the intact skin surface to control the delivery of drug and its subsequent permeation through the skin tissue.

The structure of an Ethosome allows it to carry a wide variety of molecules with various physico-chemical properties. Transdermal drug delivery offers many advantages as compared to traditional drug delivery systems, including oral and parenteral drug delivery system. Croock D, The metabolic consequences of treating postmenopausal women with normal hormone replacement therapy, Br. Although ethosomal systems are conceptually sophisticated, they are characterized by simplicity in their preparation, safety, and efficacy a combination that can highly expand their application.

High patient compliance- The Ethosomal drug reviw administrated in semisolid form gel or creamproducing high patient compliance by is high. Ethosomes also offer a good opportunity for the non-invasive delivery of etuosomes, medium, and large sized drug molecules. High patient compliance as traditional liposomes with intact vesicles 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.

Enhanced delivery of bioactive molecules through the skin and cellular membranes by means of an ethosomal carrier opens numerous erview and opportunities for the research and future development of novel improved therapies.

Synergistic penetration effect of ethanol and phospholipids on the topical delivery of Cyclosporin. Ethosomes-novel vesicular carriers for enhances.

Transdermal route is promising alternative to drug delivery for systemic effect. Ethosomes molecular weight drugs. The skin covers a total surface area of Transdermal drug delivery offers many approximately 1. When compared with standard liposomes, ethosomes had a higher entrapment capacity and a greater ability to deliver entrapped fluorescent probe to the deeper layers of skin.

Development of an optimal protocol for the ultrastructural examination of skin by transmission electron microscopy. The optimized ethosomes showed transdermal flux of Ethosomes are sophisticated vesicular delivery carriers that are capable of delivering various chemical applications.

Transdermal applications of ethosomes – a detailed review.

In with regard to penetration through skin, no the penetration enhancing mechanism after Difference could be found between hairless and application of vesicles, changes in the ultra- hairy guinea pigs. Berge V, Ethosoomes V. B, Bhadra D, Jain N. Ethosomes are novel carrier system used for 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.


Liposomal formulation was also prepared by the thin film hydration method.


The size of Ethosomes can be modulated ethosomds range anywhere from 30 nm to a few microns. These are used mainly for transdermal delivery of drugs. However, this limits the basic potential of these systems, as stratum corneum is the most formidable barrier to the passage of most of the drugs, except for highly lipophilic, low molecular weight drugs.

These are soft, malleable vesicles tailored for enhanced delivery of active agents. Select your language of interest to view the total content in your interested language. Surface tension activity measurement: The size of vesicles were found to be in the range of 3. Size and zeta potential: Ethosomes have been found to be much more efficient at delivering drug to the skin, than either liposomes or hydroalcoholic solution.
