The buccal administration of ergotamine tartrate (ET) combined with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) gel brought about higher plasma concentration of ET compared with that of oral administration of capsules in guinea-pigs. T(max) of ET in plasma of buccal administration was significantly smaller than that of oral administration. For the buccal dosage form of ET, the(More)
The hamster cheek pouch mucosa was selected as a substitute for the human buccal mucosa in an in vitro permeation study. Considering that a keratinized layer is not present in the human buccal mucosa, keratinized epithelial-free hamster cheek pouch (KEF-membrane) was prepared by chemical splitting. To confirm the usefulness of the KEF-membrane, a permeation(More)
In situ and in vitro intestinal absorption in the rat ileum was systematically studied and mechanistically quantified in terms of permeability coefficients (P) of a series of [(3)H]steroids as model transcellular permeants, [(3)H]taurocholate utilizing the active membrane transport systems to define the aqueous boundary layer (ABL), and [(14)C]urea and(More)
The objective of this study was to mechanistically and quantitatively analyze chenodeoxycholate-enhanced paracellular transport of polar permeants and oligonucleotides in the rat jejunum and ileum. Micellar chenodeoxycholate solutions were used to perturbate the tight junctions. Supporting studies included assessment of the aqueous boundary layer (ABL) with(More)
Ergotamine tartrate (ET) is used clinically in the treatment of migraines. However, the bioavailability of ET is rather poor following oral administration. Therefore, we tried to improve ET delivery using buccal administration. The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of the permeation of ET through the hamster cheek pouch in vitro(More)
