To investigate mechanism of microwave enhancing drug permeation transdermally through its action on skin. Hydrophilic pectin-sulphanilamide films, with or without oleic acid (OA), were subjected to drug release and skin permeation studies. The skins were untreated or microwave-treated, and characterized by infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, thermal, electron microscopy and histology techniques. Skin treatment by microwave at 2450 MHz for 5 min promoted drug permeation from OA-free film… CONTINUE READING
