The effective use of catanionic drug-surfactant a combination was shown to be a proficient novel manner of obtaining prolonged drug release from gels. It was basically revealed that several regularly used drug compounds have the ability to form catanionic mixtures along with oppositely charged surfactants. These mixtures exhibited unique phase behaviour, where, among different structures, vesicles and huge worm-like or branched micelles put together. The length of these aggregates brings about a prospective way of prolonging the drug release from gels, as only monomer drugs in equilibrium with larger aggregates were readily capable to diffuse throughout the gel. Once the diffusion coefficient for drug release out of the formulation based on a catanionic mixture was opposed for that obtained to the drug substance and gel alone, the coefficient was some 10 to 100 times smaller.The impact of modifications in the pH and ionic strength for the catanionic aggregates seemed to be investigated…
