Abstract: The effect of solubilization by complexation with povidone on the oral bioavailability of three anthelmintic benzimidazole carbamate drugs: mebendazole (MBZ), albendazole (ABZ) and ricobendazole (RBZ), was studied in mice. The following in vitro characteristics of the initial raw materials and the drug-povidone complexes were evaluated: melting point (MP); mean dissolution time (MDT); solubility constants (Cs) in n-octanol, acid (pH 1.2) and neutral (pH 7.4) aqueous media; apparent partition coefficients (P) a…
