Skin electroporation has great potential for topical delivery of oligonucleotides. Controled therapeutic levels of an intact phosphorothioate oligonucleotide (PS) can be reached in the viable tissue of the skin. The aim of this work was to investigate the transport mechanisms of a PS in hairless rat skin by electroporation, and hence to allow optimization(More)
Purpose. The aim of this paper was to assess the feasibility of electrically enhanced transdermal delivery of alniditan, a novel 5 HT1D agonist for the treatment of migraine. Methods. An in vitro study was first performed to optimize the different parameters affecting iontophoresis efficiency. The mechanism of alniditan permeation by iontophoresis was(More)
Short high-voltage pulses have recently been shown to dramatically increase and expedite transdermal drug transport via a mechanism hypothesized to involve electroporation. This study addresses tolerance issues of the method in vivo in hairless rat. Chromametry, transepidermal water loss (TEWL), laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) and corneometry were jointly(More)
Theoretically, a positive relation is expected between skin temperature and the percutaneous penetration of topically applied substances. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of the temperature on the in vitro percutaneous penetration of dihydrotestosterone. Hairless rat skin was mounted in static diffusion cells placed in a water bath(More)
Application of high voltage pulses (HVP) to the skin has been shown to promote the transdermal drug delivery by a mechanism involving skin electroporation. The aim of this study was to detect potential changes in lipid phase and ultrastructure induced in human stratum corneum by various HVP protocols, using differential thermal analysis and freeze-fracture(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the transdermal permeation of alniditan by electroporation and to compare with iontophoretic delivery. The influence of the electrical parameters of electroporation was investigated in vitro using a factorial design study. The transdermal flux of alniditan was enhanced by two orders of magnitude by application of high(More)
