Bioavailability assessment of ketoprofen incorporated in gelled self-emulsifying formulation: A technical note


Based on the results of the present study, it is apparent that the gelled SEF containing KPF did not significantly alter its bioavailability as compared with that of an immediate release solid dosage form when administered to human volunteers by the oral route.
