The pharmaceutical sector continues to face difficulties with poorly soluble drug solubility. Insufficiently soluble drugs have low bioavailability, and their effectiveness is frequently affected. Numerous approaches have been developed in response to this challenge, including using various dosage forms, solid dispersions, nano-suspensions, self-emulsifying drug delivery systems, and cyclodextrin complexes. By improving drug dissolving, decreasing drug particle size, and increasing drug dispersion, these dosage forms seek to increase drug solubility. Nanotechnology is one of the latest advances that has the potential to revolutionize the delivery of drugs and significantly improve the solubility of drugs that are now poorly soluble. Since they have a larger surface area and can pass through biological barriers, nanoparticles are particularly well suited for the delivery of drugs. These technologies can potentially enable the development of more effective and efficient drug formulations for the treatment of various diseases. In addition, the review highlights recent advances in the field, including emerging technologies such as nanotechnology, which can revolutionize drug delivery and significantly improve the solubility of poorly soluble drugs with their potential applications.

Keywords: Bioavailability, cyclodextrin, liposomes, nanoparticles, solubility, suspension.
