To develop in-silico model for predicting percutaneous absorption and disposition kinetics of chemicals in skin layers so as to facilitate the design of transdermal drug delivery systems and skin care products, and risk assessment of occupational or consumer exposure. A general-purpose computer model for simulating skin permeation, absorption and(More)
Models of the outer epithelia of the human body - namely the skin, the intestine and the lung - have found valid applications in both research and industrial settings as attractive alternatives to animal testing. A variety of approaches to model these barriers are currently employed in such fields, ranging from the utilization of ex vivo tissue to(More)
Free energy prediction of ligand binding to macromolecules using explicit solvent molecular dynamics (MD) simulations is computationally very expensive. Recently, we reported a linear correlation between the binding free energy obtained via umbrella sampling (US) versus the rupture force from steered molecular dynamics (SMD) simulations for(More)
The purpose was to develop a mechanistic mathematical model for predicting the pharmacokinetics of topically applied solutes penetrating through the skin and into the blood circulation. The model could be used to support the design of transdermal drug delivery systems and skin care products, and risk assessment of occupational or consumer exposure. A(More)
The uptake kinetics of five molecules by hair has been measured and the effects of pH and physical chemical properties of molecules were investigated. A theoretical model is proposed to analyze the experimental data. The results indicate that the binding affinity of solute to hair, as characterized by hair–water partition coefficient, scales to the(More)
