The objectives of this study were to investigate a novel laser microporation technology ( P.L.E.A.S.E. Painless Laser Epidermal System) and to determine the effect of pore number and depth on the rate and extent of drug delivery across the skin. In addition, the micropores were visualized by confocal laser scanning microscopy and histological studies were(More)
The aim of the study was (i) to investigate the feasibility of using fractional laser ablation to create micropore arrays in order to deliver proteins into and across the skin and (ii) to demonstrate how transport rates could be controlled by variation of poration and formulation conditions. Four proteins with very different structures and properties were(More)
The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of laser microporation, using P.L.E.A.S.E.® technology, on diclofenac delivery kinetics. Skin transport of diclofenac was studied from aqueous solution, propylene glycol and marketed formulations across intact and laser-porated porcine and human skins; cumulative permeation and skin deposition were(More)
The objective of the present investigation was to develop and evaluate microemulsion based gel for the vaginal delivery of fluconazole (FLZ). The solubility of FLZ in oils and surfactants was evaluated to identify components of the microemulsion. The ternary diagram was plotted to identify the area of microemulsion existence. Various gelling agents were(More)
Efficient topical drug administration for the treatment of superficial fungal infections would deliver the therapeutic agent to the target compartment and reduce the risk of systemic side effects. However, the physicochemical properties of the commonly used azole antifungals make their formulation a considerable challenge. The objective of the present(More)
An important issue with respect to the transdermal delivery of peptides is their stability during transit through the epidermis and dermis before entry into the systemic circulation. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of epidermal and dermal tissue on the stability of the luteinizing hormone releasing hormone superagonist,(More)
The objective of the present investigation was to develop and evaluate self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) for improving the delivery of a BCS class II antidiabetic agent, glyburide (GLY). The solubility of GLY in oils, cosurfactants, and surfactants was evaluated to identify the components of the microemulsion. The ternary diagram was(More)
The effect of N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) on the phase behavior of two ternary systems, viz. PEG-35-castor oil (CremophoreEL)-glyceryl caprylate/caprate (Capmul MCM)-water and PEG-35-castor oil (CremophoreEL)-isopropyl myristate-water was studied. The study indicated that NMP has considerable influence on the phase behavior of both the systems. NMP increased(More)
The objective of the present investigation was to develop and evaluate microemulsion-based gel for the vaginal delivery of clotrimazole (CMZ). The solubility of CMZ in oils and surfactants was evaluated to identify components of the microemulsion. The ternary diagram was plotted to identify the area of microemulsion existence. Various gelling agents were(More)
