This review aimed to find information about the solubility of the fenofibrate solid dispersion system using PEG 6000. Fenofibrate is an antihyperlipidemic drug that belongs to the Biopharmaceutical Classification System Class II (BCS II) with low solubility. To find information was by conducting a literature search in national and international journals in the last ten years (2010-2020) through websites, namely Google Scholar, Science Direct, NCBI, ResearchGate, and other trusted journals. Several keywords were used as follows: fenofibrate, solid dispersion, PEG 6000, and dissolution rate. The results of several research journals showed that the solid dispersion of fenofibrate using PEG 6000 made by various methods causes a reduction in particle size to increase the solubility and dissolution rate of fenofibrate. The solid dispersions system was made using several methods, namely fusion (melting), solvent evaporation, dropping, and cogrinding, which is a technique used to increase the solubility of a drug. PEG 6000 was chosen as the carrier because it has high hydrophilicity, is non-toxic, inert, economical, has a low melting point, and is dense at melting temperature to withstand crystallization. Thus it can be concluded that the manufacture of solid dispersion of fenofibrate using PEG 6000 and several methods showed the same results, namely an increase in solubility and dissolution rate.
