Permeation-Enhancing Effects and Mechanisms of Borneol and Menthol on Ligustrazine: A Multiscale Study using In Vitro and Coarse-Grained Molecular Dynamics Simulation Methods.

Borneol (BO) and menthol (MEN) are two widely used natural permeation enhancers in the transdermal drug delivery system. In previous studies, their permeation enhancement effects and mechanisms of action on the hydrophobic drug osthole (logP=3.8) and hydrophilic drug 5-fluorouracil (logP=-0.9) have been studied. In this study, ligustrazine (LTZ), whose logP… CONTINUE READING
