Ezetimibe, the antihyperlipidemic drug of poor bioavailability was complexed with native and derivatized cyclodextrins.The complexes were characterized in terms stability, stoichiometry and structure using various 1D and 2D solution NMR spectroscopic techniques. The complexes were found to be of moderate stability (logK<3). The least stable inclusion complex is formed with ?-cyclodextrin, while the ezetimibe-methylated- ?-cyclodextrin has a 7-fold higher stability. The results can be useful to improve the poor water-solubility and the concomitant bioavailability of ezetimibe.
