The objective of the present investigation was to study the effect of presence of choline dichloride (CDC) in β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) on in vitro dissolution of Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) from molecular inclusion complexes. The molecular inclusion complexes of UDCA with β-CD coprecipitated with CDC were prepared using kneading method. In vitro dissolution of pure drug, physical mixtures and cyclodextrin inclusion complexes (UDCA-β-CD- CDC) were carried out. Molecular inclusion complexes of Ursodeoxycholic acid with coprecipitated β-CD showed considerable increase in the dissolution rate in comparison with physical mixture and pure drug in 0.1 N HCl, pH1.2 and phosphate buffer, pH 7.4. Inclusion complexes with 1:2M ratio showed maximum dissolution rate in comparison to other ratios. FT-IR spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry studies indicated no interaction between UDCA and β-CD-CDC in complexes in solid state. Dissolution enhancement was attributed to the formation of water soluble inclusion complexes with the precipitated form of β-CD. The in vitro release from all the formulations was best described by first order kinetics followed by Higuchi release model. In conclusion, dissolution of Ursodeoxycholic acid can be enhanced by using the β-CD-CDC coprecipitate as a host st molecolec.
