a Department of Pharmaceutics and Industrial Pharmacy Faculty of Pharmacy , University of Beni-Suef , Beni-Suef , Egypt.

The oral administration of celecoxib (CLX) is a real problem because of its low aqueous solubility that results in high variability in absorption and its severe adverse effect such as cardiotoxic effects and gastrointestinal toxicity. Self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery systems (SNEDDS) can enhance the poor dissolution and erratic absorption of poorly water-soluble drugs such as CLX. This study was conducted to investigate the potential of SNEDDS to enhance the efficacy of CLX on inflamed mucous tissue and reduce systemic adverse effects by increasing its poor dissolution properties.

Skin is considered the most accessible organ of the body because of its underlying capillary network. However, stratum corneum (SC), the upper most layer of skin, represents major diffusional barrier for most drugs. Hence, the use of edge activators (EAs) in designing novel elastic vesicles is hypothesized to impart their lipid bilayer with ultra-flexibility to trespass SC by high self-optimizing deformability.
