The objective of this study was to investigate the duration of biological effects of modified insulin glargine released from a novel biodegradable injectable gel in type II diabetic Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats. Modified insulin glargine was purified from the marketed formulation by process of dialysis followed by freeze-drying, and the purity was… (More)
The objective of this study was to develop a water-in-oil (w/o) microemulsion which can be utilized as a transdermal delivery for iodide ions. Several w/o microemulsion formulations were prepared utilizing Span 20, ethanol, Capryol 90®, and water. The selected formulations had 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, and a maximum of 23% w/w water content. Potassium iodide (KI)… (More)
Facial angiofibromas are dermatological manifestations of tuberous sclerosis complex, a neurocutaneous disorder characterized by excess cell growth and proliferation. Oral rapamycin has been used to treat visceral tuberous sclerosis-related tumors; however, the side effect profile of this medicine precludes its routine use in patients lacking significant… (More)
The purpose of this study is to enhance the dissolution rate of prednisone by co-grinding with Neusilin to form a complex that can be incorporated into a mini-tablet formulation for pediatrics. Prednisone–Neusilin complex was co-grinded at various ratios (1:1, 1:3, 1:5, and 1:7). The physicochemical properties of the complex were characterized by various… (More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the transdermal efficiency of iodide microemulsion in treating iodine deficiency using rats as an animal model. Animals were fed either iodine-deficient diet (20 μg/kg iodide) or control diet (200 μg/kg iodide) over a 17-month period. At month 14, iodide microemulsion was applied topically in iodine-deficient… (More)
