Enhancing anti-inflammation activity of curcumin through O/W nanoemulsions

High-speed and high-pressure homogenized O/W emulsions using medium chain triacylglycerols as oil and Tween 20 as emulsifier, with mean droplet sizes ranging from 618.6 nm to 79.5 nm, have been successfully prepared

Scholarcy highlights

  • High-speed and high-pressure homogenized O/W emulsions using medium chain triacylglycerols as oil and Tween 20 as emulsifier, with mean droplet sizes ranging from 618.6 nm to 79.5 nm, have been successfully prepared
  • The enhanced anti-inflammation activity of curcumin encapsulated in O/W emulsions is evidenced by the mouse ear inflammation model
  • There is a 43% or 85% inhibition effect of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate-induced edema of mouse ear for 618.6 nm and 79.5 nm 1% curcumin O/W emulsions, respectively, but a negligible effect is found for 1% curcumin in 10% Tween 20 water solution
