Advanced chemical imaging and comparison of human and porcine hair follicles for drug delivery by confocal Raman microscopy.

Abstract

Hair follicles have recently gained a lot of interest for dermal drug delivery. They provide facilitated penetration into the skin and a high potential to serve as a drug depot. In this area of research, excised pig ear is a widely accepted in vitro model to evaluate penetration of drug delivery into hair follicles. However, a comparison of human and… (More)
