    The aim of the present study was to investigate the applicability of liquisolid technique in improving the dissolution properties and solubility of olmesartan medoxomil (OLM) in a solid dosage form. This study was designed to optimize and evaluate the effects of different formulation variables: ratio of carrier to coating material (X1) and drug concentration (X2)  on angle of repose (Y1), hardness(Y2), saturation solubility study (Y3) and cumulative percentage release at 10 min (CPR 10min)(Y4) of formulation using five  level two factor central composite design. The quadratic model generated by the design is of the form: Y = A0 + A1X1 + A2X2 + A3X1X2 + A4X12 + A5X22 + E, where Y is the measured response associated with each factor level combination. Contour and response surface plots were depicted based on the equation given by the model. The optimized formula yields observed values close to the predicted values. The liquisolid tablets were formulated with liquid vehicles, poly ethylene glycol 400 (PEG400) at five drug concentrations, 10% w/w, 15% w/w, 20% w/w, 25% w/w and 30% w/w. Avicel PH102 was used as a carrier material, Aerosil 200 as a coating material and cross carmellose sodium as a disintegrant.In-vitro drug dissolution profiles of the liquisolid formulations were studied and compared with conventional formulation (olmezest), in simulated intestinal fluid (pH 6.8). The drug release rates of LS compacts were higher as compared to directly compressed tablets, which show significant benefit of LS in increasing wetting properties and surface area of drug available for dissolution. From this study it concludes that the LS technique is a promising alternative for improvement of dissolution property.

    Today estimate that about 80% of people in developing countries still relays on traditional medicine based largely on species of plants and animals for their primary health care. India has one of the richest plant traditions in the world. These are estimated to by around 25,000 effect plant based formulations, used in folk medicine and known to rural communities in India. Indias share in the export of herbals is USD 63 billion which is just 0.2% of the global herbal market. So there is obviously vast scope for Indian manufacturers for entering the growing worldwide opportunity of business in herbal pharmaceutical field. We also have to focus on standardization of herbal products. Pharmaceutical export promotion council i.e PHARMEXCIL is ready to play a key role in this regards. Currently, a majority of the adverse events related to the use of herbal products and herbal medicines that are reported are attributable either to poor product quality or to improper use. Inadequate regulatory measures, weak quality control systems and largely uncontrolled distribution channels may have been contribution to the occurrence of such events. So Pharmacovigilance of herbal medicines is required.
