Enhanced solubility and intestinal absorption of candesartan cilexetil solid dispersions using everted rat intestinal sacs.


OBJECTIVE Candesartan cilexetil (CAN) is a poor aqueous soluble compound and a P-glycoprotein (P-gp) efflux pump substrate. These key factors are responsible for its incomplete intestinal absorption. METHODS In this study, we investigated to enhance the absorption of CAN by improving its solubility and inhibiting intestinal P-gp activity. A phase… (More)
