Ethosomes are phospholipid nanovesicles used for dermal and transdermal delivery of molecules. They. Structure and composition[edit]. Ethosomes are mainly. 8 Oct Now a days liposomes, niosomes, transferosomes and ethosomes (vesicular and non invasive drug delivery)are used to increase the. The objective of work was to formulate, evaluate and compare the transdermal potential of novel vesicular nanocarriers: ethosomes and ultradeformable.

Depending on the formulation, delivery can be targeted for local delivery or for systemic use.


Many environmental pathogens attempt to enter the body through the skin. The main disadvantage of transdermal drug etgosomes is the poor penetration of most compounds into the human skin.

Phospholipon 90 and drug should be dissolved in ethanol. Ethosomes were developed by Touitou et al.

Topical administration of ethosojes antioxidants is one of the several approaches to diminish oxidative injury in the skin for cosmetic and cosmeceutical applications.

In general, the epidermis specifically the stratum corneum provides the major control element; most small, water-soluble, and non-electrolytes diffuse into the systemic circulation a thousand times more rapidly when the horny layer is present.

The ethosomee of THP remaining in the skin at the end of 18 hours was significantly higher after the application of ethosomes than after the application of liposome or hydroethanolic solution control.


Novel Therapeutic technology Inc. The in vitro permeation study was carried out by using modified Franz diffusion cell with egg membrane. Ethosomes were designed to enhance the delivery of drugs into the deep layers of the skin and through the skin. A novel vesicular carriers for enhanced transdermal delivery of an anti HIV agent. In the present work, ethosomal formulation to enhance transdermal permeation of aceclofenac, was prepared and evaluated.

It was observed that the topically applied ethosome-GFP-CMV-driven transfecting construct enabled efficient delivery and expression of genes in the skin cells. It was found that the quantity of minoxidil accumulated into nude mice skin after application of its ethosomal formulation was 2.


Nanoparticles aiming at specific targets — dermal and transdermal delivery. High market attractiveness for products with proprietary technology. Effect of enhancers and retarders on percutaneous absorption of flurbiprofen from hydrogel.

Bhushan Ed Encyclopedia of Nanotechnology, pp. In addition along with these side effects, oral hormonal preparations rely highly on patient compliance. Different reports show a promising future of ethosomes in making transdermal delivery of various agents more effective.

Enhanced transdermal delivery of sulbutamol sulfate via ethosomes. Comparision of 5-aminolevulinic acid-encapsulated liposomes versus ethosomes for skin delivery for photodynamic therapy. Melatonin loaded ethanolic liposomes: THP has a short biological half-life 3 hours and its oral administration is difficult due to motor disorders and neurogical manifestations associated with parkinsonian syndrome.

Amount of aceclofenac in supernatant and sediment gave a total amount of aceclofenac in 1 ml dispersion. Ethosomes have been found to be much more efficient at delivering drug to the skin, than either liposomes or hydroalcoholic solution.

The effect of different formulation variables on skin permeation of zidovudine was studied using locally fabricated Keshry-Chien type of diffusion cell. In vitro percutaneous permeation sthosomes human skin and in vivo anti-inflammatory activity on human volunteers. This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.

It helps in reducing the dose of drug applied topically. Ethosomes are sophisticated vesicular delivery carriers that are capable of delivering various chemical applications. In vitro characterization and In vivo evaluation of anti gout activity. Due to ethosmoes amphiphilic nature, lipid vesicles may serve as non-toxic penetration enhancers for drugs.

It is thought that the first part of the mechanism is due to the? The cumulative amount of drug permeated was maximum formulation ETP2 0.

Hence, both in vitro and in vivo studies demonstrated improved skin permeation and bioavailability of testosterone from the ethosomal formulation. Several technological advances have been made in the recent decades to overcome skin barrier properties. In the past decade, topical delivery of drugs by liposomal formulation has evoked considerable interest. Mechanism of Action of the Ethosomal Drug Delivery System A synergistic mechanism was suggested between ethanol, vesicles, and skin lipids.


This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Ethospmes Alike 3. The absence of electrostatic repulsion is likely to account for the tendency of the neutral liposome to aggregate, but in case of ethosomes, ethanol causes a modification of the ethosoomes charge of the system and confers it some degree of steric stabilization leading to increased stability of the dispersion against agglomeration that may also lead to a decrease in the mean vesicle size.

Methods of Preparation of Ethosomes The literature reports various methods for the preparation of ethosomes and some commonly used methods have been compiled in the preceeding text. The optimized developed elastic vesicular formulations, by adjusting their compositions and sizes, can be a promising means for not only cosmeceutical applications, but also for the topical non-invasive treatment of local and systemic disorders of many pharmaceuticals as well.

In contrast, Iontophoresis and Phonophoresis are relatively complicated to use which will affect patient compliance. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

Therapeutic and cosmeceutical potential of ethosomes: An overview

Systemic and mucosal immune response induced by transcutaneous immunization using Ethoxomes B surface antigen-loaded modified liposomes. A significant increase in amount permeated from ethosomal system was observed as compared to marketed formulation which could be due to sustained release behavior of system.

Elastic liposomal formulations for sustained delivery of Colchicine: Chiang Mai J Sci.

The transcutaneous delivery potential of the antigen-loaded antigen system, using human cadaver skin, demonstrated a much higher skin permeation of the antigen in comparision to the conventional liposomes and soluble antigen preparation. High patient compliance—The ethosome drugs are administrated in a semisolid form gel ethosomees creamproducing high patient compliance.
