The main object of this current research was to examine transferosomes as a transdermal delivery system for insulin, to overwhelm the difficulties related with its subcutaneous delivery. Transferosomal gel formulations were prepared by rotary evaporation sonication technique. The result revealed that insulin was successfully entrapped (78%) in optimized formulations (2.5 I.U. of the drug and 25% of sodium cholate) with cumulative percent drug release (83.11 ± 3.782). The glucose lowering study revealed that the transferosomal gel with chemical penetration enhancer showed better glucose lowering effect as compared to the control gel. Consequently, this study authenticated that the transferosomal gel can be used as a possible substitute to the conventional formulations of insulin with progressive permeation characteristics for transdermal application.
