Evaluation in vitro and in vivo of dimethicone transdermal therapeutic systems. Influence of propylene glycol on drug release.

Coumarin-containing transdermal drug delivery systems were studied in vitro for drug release and in vivo in rats for drug absorption. The matrix of the transdermal delivery system, dimethicone, was a commercially available silicone elastomer. The devices containing 1, 3 and 5% coumarin released in vitro 8.8 (87.4%), 23.4 (74.5%) and 31.6 mg (63.3%) of drug… CONTINUE READING
