Abstract: In the present study, effect of various concentrations of Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) as an enhancer on transdermal absorption of Diclofenac diethylamine through hairless rabbit skin was evaluated in-vitro. From the data, SLS shows that the smallest lag time gives a picture about its rapid enhancing effect. The permeability co-efficient and flux rate calculated for Diclofenac in the presence of SLS as an enhancer shows that the penetration of drug through hairless rabbit skin has been significantly increased.
Keywords: Diclofenac, enhancer, topically, transdermal.
