In current study topical gel formulations of Clarithromycin were formulated by using different concentration of polymers (single or in combination) like hydroxy propyl cellulose, Xanthan Gum, HPMCK4M and Carbopol. Fifteen formulations were prepared and characterized for the different parameter like color, pH, homogeneity, spreadability, drug content, viscosity and invitro drug release. Drug release study was performed with dialysis Franz diffusion. Formulation through good release distinctiveness was further evaluated for stability study for 15 days. Formulation F11 was good in conditions of drug release and physical characteristics. No significant drug defeat occurred later than 15 days when tested on accelerated storage conditions.
