Lipid nanoparticles as vehicles for topical psoralen delivery: solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) versus nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC).
Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) were developed by using Precirol ATO 5 as the solid core of the particles for topical psoralen delivery. Nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) consisting of Precirol andExpand

Urban particulate matter down-regulates filaggrin via COX2 expression/PGE2 production leading to skin barrier dysfunction
We explored the regulation of filaggrin, cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) expression induced by urban particulate matter (PM) in human keratinocytes. In addition, we investigatedExpand

Antibacterial activities of bacteriocins: application in foods and pharmaceuticals
Bacteriocins are a kind of ribosomal synthesized antimicrobial peptides produced by bacteria, which can kill or inhibit bacterial strains closely-related or non-related to produced bacteria, but willExpand

Lasers and microdermabrasion enhance and control topical delivery of vitamin C.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of lasers and microdermabrasion, both of which are skin resurfacing modalities, to enhance and control the in vitro skin permeation andExpand

Recent advances in oral delivery of drugs and bioactive natural products using solid lipid nanoparticles as the carriers.
Chemical and enzymatic barriers in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract hamper the oral delivery of many labile drugs. The GI epithelium also contributes to poor permeability for numerous drugs. DrugsExpand

Chrysin protects epidermal keratinocytes from UVA- and UVB-induced damage.
Chrysin (5,7-dihydroxyflavone), a natural flavonoid occurring in various plants and foods such as propolis and honey, reportedly opposes inflammation and carcinogenesis, but has rarely been appliedExpand

The effect of laser treatment on skin to enhance and control transdermal delivery of 5-fluorouracil.
The effect of three lasers (i.e., the ruby, erbium:YAG, and CO2) on the ability to enhance and control skin permeation of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) was studied in vitro. Light microscopic andExpand

Transdermal iontophoresis of 5-fluorouracil combined with electroporation and laser treatment.
The influence of iontophoresis and other physical enhancement methods such as electroporation and erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (YAG) laser on the skin permeation of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) wasExpand

Effects of lipophilic emulsifiers on the oral administration of lovastatin from nanostructured lipid carriers: physicochemical characterization and pharmacokinetics.
Nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) made from mixtures of Precirol and squalene were prepared to investigate whether the bioavailability of lovastatin can be improved by oral delivery. The size,Expand
