Intestinal absorption and bioavailability of taxol are limited by its low solubility and P-glycoprotein (Pgp) activity. Methylated β-cyclodextrins (CDs) effectively form complexes with paclitaxel but randomly methylated β-cyclodextrin (RAMEB) is cytotoxic in high concentrations. Second-generation derivatives containing monoamino (MaRAMEB) and succinylated(More)
Plants with high amounts of antioxidants may be a promising therapy for preventing and curing UV-induced oxidative skin damage. The objective of this study was to verify the efficacy of topical formulations containing dissolved and suspended Silybum marianum extract against UVB-induced oxidative stress in guinea pig and HaCaT keratinocytes. Herbal extract(More)
The contribution of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) treatment, an active fragment of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), to the recovery of postischemic cardiac function, infarct size, the incidence of reperfusion-induced ventricular fibrillation and apoptotic cell death was studied in ischemic/reperfused isolated rat hearts. Rats were(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the cellular effects of the members of two non-ionic amphiphilic tenside groups and their mixtures on human Caco-2 cell monolayers as dependent upon their chemical structures and physicochemical properties. The first group of polyethylene glycol esters is represented by Polysorbates and Labrasol alone and in(More)
Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) is processed to adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and beta-lipotropin in corticotropes of the anterior lobe, and to alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) and beta-endorphin in melanotropes of the intermediate lobe (IL) of the pituitary gland. While ACTH secretion is predominantly under the stimulatory influence of the(More)
The main purpose of this study was to certify the effect of native silymarin oil (SM-oil) formulated in a self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS). The optimal formulation was 25% of SM-oil, 33.3 % of Cremophor RH40, 20% of Transcutol HP, 16.6% of Labrasol and 5% of Capryol 90. In this novel formulation the SM-oil was the active substance and the(More)
Cyclodextrins are widely used excipients for increasing the bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drugs. Their effect on drug absorption in the gastrointestinal tract is explained by their solubility- and permeability-enhancement. The aims of this study were to investigate penetration properties of fluorescently labeled randomly(More)
Cyclodextrins (CDs) are widely used materials and still in the focus of drug development. In spite of the extensive studies, there is limited information about the cytotoxic effect of different derivatives. This study compares the cytotoxic effect of methylated beta-CDs and some ionic derivatives. The methylated CDs involved in this study differ in the(More)
Cyclodextrins, even the 6-membered α-cyclodextrin, are approved in the various pharmacopoeias as pharmaceutical excipients for solubilizing and stabilizing drugs as well as for controlling drug release. Recently α-cyclodextrin has also been marketed as health food with beneficial effects on blood lipid profiles. However, the concentration of α-cyclodextrin(More)
The hemolytic activity and the cytotoxicity of PEG-based solubilizing agents on Caco-2 monolayer were investigated. In vitro tests can predict the irritancy potential and the delayed toxicity of the surfactants. There were significant concentration dependent differences between the result of the MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl))-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium(More)
