Charged drug delivery systems are interesting candidates for the delivery of drugs through skin. In the present study, it was possible to create negatively and positively charged oil/water nanoemulsions by using sucrose laureate and polysorbate 80 as non-ionic surfactants. The positively charged nanoemulsions were generated by adding cationic(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the influence of different drugs exhibiting different solubility on the viscoelastic properties and on the skin diffusion profile of a ringing gel. In a preliminary rheology study with the placebo gel predominating elastic properties were confirmed and a temperature influence was indicated. Fluconazole,(More)
The present study evaluated the effect of different commercially available soybean lecithins in microemulsion systems in terms of microstructure transformation, physicochemical properties and transport of selected entrapped fluorinated drugs through skin. Physicochemical characterisations by particle size and polydispersity index (PDI) measurements were(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate skin-compatible drug delivery systems for fluconazole. Pseudoternary phase diagrams were constructed, composed of different soybean lecithins/oil/isopropanol and water. The role of the various lecithin compositions was expressed in the different resulting isotropic areas. Based on these phase diagrams, two(More)
BACKGROUND Chitosan-EDTA is an interesting matrix for dermal delivery; however, the adhesiveness is too small. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate chitosan-glycolic acid as possible dermal matrix for progesterone in comparison to chitosan-EDTA and carrageenan. METHOD After preparation of the chitosan-glycolic acid salt and(More)
Phytosphingosine (PS) is a promising compound in skin formulations, considering its application in the treatment of acne and different inflammations as well as in the 'anti age' cosmetics. PS, as an active substance was incorporated in DPPC liposomes intended to standard diffusion experiments, where dermatomed porcine skin was mounted in FRANZ cells. The(More)
