Introduction: The microemulsion concept was introduced in 1943 by Hoar and Schulman. Self-microemulsifying drug delivery systems (S(M)EDDS) are much more recent and can be described as isotropic solutions of oils and surfactants that form oil-in-water O/W microemulsions when they are poured into an aqueous medium. When they are presented as soft capsules for oral delivery, S(M)EDDS have the ability to considerably improve the intestinal absorption of agents that are incorporated into the S(M… Expand
