PURPOSE In this study, we developed a self-assembling micellar system to deliver cyclosporine A (CsA) in an aqueous solution to the cornea. METHODS Two nonionic surfactants of the poly(ethylene glycol)-fatty alcohol ether type (Sympatens AS and Sympatens ACS) were characterized in terms of micelle size, shape, and charge, and their encapsulation(More)
For highly potent but poorly water-soluble drugs like cyclosporine A, the development of aqueous formulations providing an increase of corneal drug tissue levels, and thus of bioavailability, to increase patient compliance is still a challenge. Therefore, we designed two water-based liquid application systems, an in-situ nanosuspension (INS) and a micellar(More)
With about 50-60 million cases in the US alone, dry eye disease represents a severe health care problem. Cyclosporin A (CsA) would be a potent candidate for a causal therapy. However, CsA is not sufficiently water soluble to be administrated via simple eye drops. We developed an in situ nanosuspension (INS) as a novel approach towards the administration of(More)
