The incidence of genetic lipoprotein disorders, or hyperlipoproteinaemia, is currently increasing. Examinations were carried out on the hyperlipoproteinaemic drug fenofibrate and various cyclodextrin derivatives were applied to increase the solubility of this drug. Numerous products with several compositions (drug: CD mole ratio=2:1, 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3) were studied and three preparation methods (powder mixing, kneading and precipitation) were used. In vitro drug liberation and membrane diffusion examinations revealed compositions suitable for the preparation of a capsule dosage form (1:2 and 1:3 physical mixtures).
