Psoriasis is a chronic condition that is caused by the negative signals given by immune system, which leads to hyperproliferation and other inflammatory reactions on the skin. These conditions may adversely affect the quality of the patient's life leading to psychological stress. Topical delivery of drug is always preferred for Psoriasis because other treatments may lead to systemic intoxication and other adverse reactions. Triamcinolone is a topical corticosteroid belonging to BCS class IV (low solubility and permeability) used to treat Psoriasis. The limitations with transdermal delivery is that only a small amount of the drug can be transferred through the skin tissue due to the barrier effects of the Stratum corneum. Therefore, Novel transdermal delivery system, Cubosomes belonging to Nanostructured lipid carriers were chosen to overcome the issues of solubility and permeability. Twelve formulations were prepared with various ratios of Glyceryl monooleate (2.5 to 5%) & Poloxamer 407 (0.5 to 2%) and the formulations were evaluated for particle size, PDI, zeta potential, entrapment efficacy, drug content and in-vitro release. The best composition of Cubosomes was selected and incorporated into transdermal patch and the formulated patches were evaluated.
