Adapalene (ADP), a topically administered antiacne drug, finds limitation due to poor penetration, limited localization, and associated incompatibility of photosensitization and skin irritation. To explicate an innovative and safe method for ADP administration and alleviating the associated limitations, solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) of ADP have been(More)
Tamarind seed xyloglucan is a polymer reported to possess mucoadhesive property. In the present work, role of cysteine derivative of tamarind seed polysaccharide (thiomer) to enhance the mucoadhesion and its influence on drug permeation has been studied. The xyloglucan was first chemically modified to carboxymethyl derivative which was further converted to(More)
