Background: Felodipine being a poor soluble drug exhibits irregular absorption in the gastrointestinal tract and low bioavailability. Poor bioavailability leads to frequent dosing and poor patient compliance. To overcome the problem of poor bioavailability, felodipine is made into nanoparticles using biodegradable carrier poly lactic-co-glycolic.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
