ABSTRACT- The objective of our present study was to develop multiparticulate gastro retentive drug delivery system of Curcumin. The gastro retentive drug delivery system can be formulated to improve the absorption and bio-availability of curcumin by retaining the system into the stomach for prolonged period of time. The floating drug delivery system of curcumin was prepared by emulsion solvent diffusion method by using ethyl cellulose, Eudragit L100, HPMC, Phyllium husk polymers in varying concentration. Formulations were evaluated for percent yield, particle size, entrapment efficiency, in vitro buoyancy as well as in vitro release studies. The optimized formulations show good buoyancy and in vitro controlled release of Curcumin.
Key-words- Floating microsphere, Ethyl cellulose, Hydroxypropyl Methyl cellulose (HPMC), Eudragit L 100, Phyllium Husk
