Cutaneous delivery of α‐tocopherol and lipoic acid using microemulsions: influence of composition and charge
To assess whether the composition and charge of microemulsions affect their ability to simultaneously deliver α‐tocopherol and lipoic acid into viable skin layers.

Food deprivation alters thermoregulatory responses to lipopolysaccharide by enhancing cryogenic inflammatory signaling via prostaglandin D2.
We tested the hypothesis that food deprivation alters body temperature (T(b)) responses to bacterial LPS by enhancing inflammatory signaling that decreases T(b) (cryogenic signaling) rather than byExpand

Topical delivery of lycopene using microemulsions: enhanced skin penetration and tissue antioxidant activity.
Topical delivery of lycopene is a convenient way to supplement cutaneous levels of antioxidants. In this study, lycopene was incorporated (0.05%, w/w) in two microemulsions containing BRIJ-propyleneExpand

Decylglucoside-based microemulsions for cutaneous localization of lycopene and ascorbic acid.
Cutaneous delivery of combinations of antioxidants offers the possibility of enhanced protection against UV-radiation. In this study, we investigated the potential of sugar-based microemulsionsExpand

Stability, cutaneous delivery, and antioxidant potential of a lipoic acid and α-tocopherol codrug incorporated in microemulsions.
The aim of this study was to assess the skin penetration, stability, and antioxidant effects of a α-tocopherol-lipoic acid codrug. To enhance penetration, we evaluated three microemulsions varying inExpand

Obstructive Bladder Dysfunction: Morphological, Biochemical and Molecular Changes
Abstract Obstruction can cause changes in bladder structure and function, which may at a certain point in time become irreversible. Both the rabbit and the rat have proven to be excellent models toExpand

Oxidative Stress and Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunctions Primarily Found in Women
The incidence of lower urinary tract dysfunctions (LUTDs) in women increases with age. These dysfunctions include incontinence, recurrent urinary bladder infection, and poor bladder and urethralExpand

The effect of partial outlet obstruction on prostaglandin generation in the rabbit urinary bladder.
Partial outlet obstruction of the urinary bladder has been demonstrated to induce specific dysfunctions in cellular and sub-cellular membrane structures within the bladder's smooth muscle and mucosalExpand

Fatty acid profiles in normal and obstructed rabbit bladder smooth muscle and mucosa
Partial bladder outlet obstruction results in progressive loss in contractile and specific cellular and subcellular membrane functions. There is evidence that ischemic activation of proteolytic andExpand

Effect of oral Tadenan treatment on rabbit bladder structure and function after partial outlet obstruction.
PURPOSE There is increasing evidence that the progressive dysfunction induced by partial outlet obstruction is mediated by ischemia-reperfusion, and bladder decompensation results fromExpand
