The complexation of the bioactive compound oxyresveratrol (OXY) with a polymer called cyclodextrin-based nanosponge (CD-NS) and its application was studied.A new methodology is used to calculate, an apparent inclusion complex constant (KFapp) between a ligand and CD-NSs. Moreover, the KFapp of resveratrol was also evaluated and compared. The complex of OXY with the nanosponge β-CDI 1:4, was studied in vitro using DSC, TGA and FTIR techniques and its drug loading and release behavior were studied. An in vitro digestion showed higher protection of OXY complexed than free OXY. The bioactivity enhancing capacity of OXY was also studied against prostate (PC-3) and colon (HT-29 and HCT-116) cancer cell lines, where it showed stronger cell viability inhibition than the free drug. The findings as a whole represent a new opportunity for studying the complexation of drugs in CD-NSs and the use of oxyresveratrol as an ingredient in nutraceutical products.
