Furosemide is a diuretic - and antihypertensive - drug which acts primarily by inhibiting electrolyte absorption in the loop of Henle. It is official in Pharmacopoeia Hungarica. It is a lightsensitive drug and practically insoluble in water. Its chemical structure permits the formation of inclusion complexes with β-CD-derivatives. Authors give a summary of preparation, in-vitro and in vivo, further instrumental investigation of furosemide and its inclusion complexes in detail. A discussion is also given in which the most important phenomena are presented.
