This communication is intended to address the question: How can one determine, with minimum experimentation, if cyclodextrins (CDs) might be the right choice as solubilization enhancers for a given poorly water-soluble drug? The cyclodextrin utility number, U(CD), a dimensionless number, is introduced to assess the feasibility of the use of CDs in dosage forms. U(CD) is a lumped-parameter consisting of the dose of the drug, the workable amount of CD, the binding constant, and the drug… CONTINUE READING
