Loading hydrophobic drugs into hydrogels is problematic,
because water is the main loading medium. Even if hydrophobic
drugs are loaded into hydrogels, they are not easily released.
The poster investigates the solubility of fluconazole in solvents
with and without HPBCD or SBECD. Loading and release of
fluconazole in cross-linked polymers was also studied using different loading media . 3. EXPERIMENTAL METHODS
Solubility of fluconazole was determined by adding drug to
water or water, ethanol and cyclodextrins. Solubility was assessed visually at room temperature. Soluble samples were
incubated at 4°C, 25°C and 37°C overnight and their solubility was re-examined.

dissolution (USP paddle method), using the following parameters:
