The objective and quantitative application of tape stripping in pharmaceutics and dermatopharmacokinetics requires the determination of the exact position of each removed tape strip inside the stratum corneum (SC) and/or the determination of the relative SC thickness. In this study, transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and the optical spectroscopic data of the(More)
The direct solidification process of a melt into a particulate solid is studied to achieve the desired size and shape of the product and to predict the required crystallization time. For an example, a Bisacodyl melt is chosen. The role of the contact angle of the droplet is investigated as a function of Reynolds number, degree of subcooling and(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The tape stripping procedure is a suitable minimal invasive tool to study, e.g. the penetration and dermatopharmacokinetics of topically applied substances. In the present study, this procedure was used to remove the stratum corneum (SC) completely and to study the penetration of the UVA filter substance butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane(More)
Nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared from succinylated gelatin (s-GL) cross-linked with aldehyde heparin (a-HEP) and used subsequently as a nano-template for the mineralization of hydroxyapatite (HAP). Gelatin was functionalized with succinyl groups that made it soluble at room temperature. Heparin was oxidized to generate aldehyde groups and then used as a(More)
In this study, the influence of microwave irradiation on some physico-chemical properties and several pharmaceutical technological parameters of potato and maize starches was investigated. Changes in their habits were observed and decrease in moisture contents caused by the electromagnetic irradiation was determined. The crystalline structures and the(More)
The effect of lauric acid and low-HLB sucrose esters (L-195, S170) on the isothermal crystallization of coconut oil was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry. The fundamental crystallization parameters, such as induction time of nucleation and crystallization rate, were obtained by using the Gompertz equation. The Gibb's free energy of(More)
The pore in pastilles was investigated which are produced by a pastillation technology. Mercury intrusion porosimeter and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) techniques were used for the investigation. The formation of micro-pores and cracks were in dependence of the manufacturing conditions of the pastilles (final impacting velocity, degree of subcooling(More)
The improvement of pharmaceutical dosage forms, such as tablets, towards drug delivery control and cost efficiency is of great importance in formulation technologies. Here, three examples: in situ coating, freeze casting and protein-based biocomposites are presented that address the above mentioned issues and contribute to further developments in(More)
