Adequate aqueous solubility has been one of the desired properties while selecting drug molecules and other bio-actives for product development. Often solubility of a drug determines its pharmaceutical and therapeutic performance. Majority of newly synthesized drug molecules fail or are rejected during the early phases of drug discovery and development due(More)
Almost all breast cancers originate from epithelial cells lining the milk ducts in the breast. To this end, the study investigated the feasibility of localized transdermal delivery of α-santalol, a natural chemopreventive agent to the breast. Different α-santalol formulations (cream, solution and microemulsion) were developed and the in vitro permeability(More)
Majority of breast cancers originate from epithelial cells in the duct and lobules in the breast. Current systemic treatments for breast cancer are associated with significant systemic side effects, thus warranting localized drug delivery approaches. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of hydroalcoholic vehicle on topical delivery of(More)
The study was aimed at investigating localized topical drug delivery to the breast via mammary papilla (nipple). 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and estradiol (EST) were used as model hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds respectively. Porcine and human nipple were used for in-vitro penetration studies. The removal of keratin plug enhanced the drug transport through(More)
Localized drug delivery to the breast can maximize drug concentration at the target site and minimize systemic drug distribution. To this end, the study explored the feasibility of delivering macromolecules to the breast through mammary papilla (nipple). The in vitro penetration of model macromolecules (inulin, dextran, ovalbumin, and bovine serum albumin)(More)
