Abstract OBJECTIVES: The current studies entail successful formulation of systematically optimized (OPT) nanoparticulate drug delivery system to increase the oral bioavailability using Eudragit RL 100 of trans-resveratrol (t-RVT), and evaluate their in-vitro/in-vivo performance. METHODS: t-RVT-loaded Eudragit RL 100 nanoparticles (t-RVT NPs) were prepared by nanoprecipitation method. The nanoparticles (NPs) were systematically optimized using 3(2) central composite design and the OPT formulation located using overlay plot. The pharmacokinetic and in-vivo biodistribution of t-RVT NPs were investigated in rats, and various levels of in-vitro/in-vivo correlation (IVIVC) were established. KEY FINDINGS: The OPT formulation (mean particle size: 180 nm) indicated marked improvement in drug release profile vis-à-vis pure drug and marketed formulation (MKT). Augmentation in the values of Ka (5.64-fold) and AUC0-24 (7.25-fold) indicated significant enhancement in the rate and extent of bioavailability by the optimized trans-resveratrol-loaded Eudragit RL 100 nanoparticles (OPT-t-RVT NPs) compared with pure drug. Level A of IVIVC was successfully established. OPT-t-RVT NPs showed 4.11-fold rose in the values of t-RVT concentrations in liver. In-situ single pass intestinal perfusion studies construed remarkable enhancement in the absorptivity and permeability parameters of OPT-t-RVT NPs. CONCLUSIONS: The results, therefore, insight into the role of solubility enhancement and trounce enterohepatic recirculation for improving the oral bioavailability of t-RVT. © 2014 Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
