This study investigated the spherical agglomeration of itraconazole for enhanced drug dissolution rate and bioavailability at various polymers percentage like 0.2%, 0.4%and 0.6% with Soluplus®, HPMC and PEG-4000 by simple stirring at 900 r.p.m. (The spherical agglomerates(SA) were dried powdered and with method followed by characterized by differential scanning calorimetry and X-ray powder diffraction. The SAs of itraconazole were also evaluated by drug content study, solubility study and in-vitro dissolution study. The pharmacokinetic studies of the formulations and pure itraconazole were evaluated i.e. Cmax, Tmax and AUC   in vivo study by pharmacokinetic model on wistar rats.

Keywords: Itraconazole, Spherical Agglomeration, Dissolution, Bioavailability.
