  OMiconazole nitrate is widely used as an antifungal drug with a poor aqueous solubility, which requires the development of new delivery systems to improve its therapeutic activity. Fungal infections are caused by the microscopic organisms that invade the epithelial tissue. However, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are known as potent antioxidants with antimicrobial properties. In an attempt to develop a better formulation with an antifungal profile, a surfactant aided micellar system was dispersed within miconazole nitrate gel formulation. In the proposed study, the prepared gel was evaluated for its physiochemical properties, in vitro drug release profile. It can be concluded that the addition of antioxidants and surfactants gives more promised effect in the release of miconazole nitrate.
