We prepared polypseudorotaxanes (PPRXs) composed of cyclodextrin (CyD) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) inside microspheres (MSs) by an emulsifying process using polypropylene glycol (PPG) that shows temperature-dependent hydrophilicity changes; PPG is hydrophobic at high temperatures but hydrophilic at low temperatures. An aqueous solution of CyD and PEG was(More)
Transdermal Drug Delivery Systems (TDDS), where active drugs must be absorbed into the systemic circulation after penetrating the skin barrier, were first launched in 1979, and about 10 TDDS containing different kinds of drugs were developed during the initial decade. Interestingly, a developmental rush has come again in the present century. Various(More)
We studied that the morphological and histological characteristics, and the content (%DW) of saikosaponins on the root of Bupleurum falcatum cultivated in an Ebb & Flood system (E & F), a kind of soilless culture system, by both the direct sowing and the transplanting methods, and that effects of pinching on the root growth and the content (%DW) of(More)
A generic drug is defined as a drug product that is comparable to a brand name drug in terms of dosage, form, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics, and indicated use. Generic drugs for topical use, in the case of sheet-like products, are required to be the same as the original drug in terms of application area and dosage(More)
BACKGROUND The use of acetaminophen as a drug for pain control is expected to increase in the neonatal field. The displacement factor of acetaminophen in the reaction in the glucose oxidase peroxidase method is very high, but is also considered to be inaccurate based on physicochemical properties. METHOD Unbound bilirubin was measured using the(More)
Phthalates, known as reproductive toxicants and endocrine disruptors, are widely used as plasticizers in polyvinyl chloride products. The present study was conducted for risk identification of dermal exposure to phthalates. When dibutyl phthalate was applied to the skin of hairless rats and humans, only monobutyl phthalate appeared through the skin, and the(More)
Advances in the synthesis and utilization of new chemical compounds have led to improvements in our daily lives. However, new chemicals may be both beneficial and toxic. Thus, exposure to these new compounds should be restricted in an attempt to limit their potential toxicities. We predicted the safety of three biocides (p-cresol, diazinon and resmethrin)(More)
