Classification Of Lipidbased Formulations

The various categories of lipid formulations have been previously classified with respect to composition, content of hydrophilic cosolvents, dispersion droplet size, impact of aqueous dilution, and digestibility in vivo (13).

In this chapter, we will classify lipid formulations based on the miscibility of the system components (e.g., single phase or isotropic lipid solutions or two-phase systems, such as lipid suspensions or lipid semi-solid dispersions). Case-studies of lipid formulations used to address issues pertaining to poor bio-availability will be presented.
