The tissue distribution and percutaneous drug absorption of indomethacin (IND) patches were studied using commercial IND as a comparison. The concentration of IND in skin, plasma, and muscle in mice was measured by LC-MS/MS, and the IND concentration in the dermis of rats was also monitored by microdialysis. After percutaneous administration, the "double-peak" phenomenon occurred in different tissues, and the IND concentration was ranked as skin first, followed by plasma and then muscle. In particular, skin acted as a reservoir for drug release, and the "secondary hump" in tissue distribution was attributed to the subsequent release of lipophilic IND in skin...

Bovine mastitis caused by bacterial infections of the mammary gland (udder) of dairy cows is a costly pathology for the dairy industry due to direct and indirect losses in production. Penethamate, a pro-drug of benzylpenicillin, is used by intramuscular injection (IM). The existing products are powders which must be reconstituted in water-for-injection and this presents difficulties in the field. Penethamate is too unstable to be formulated as an aqueous formulation but a chemically stable suspension formulation was possible in certain oils; however, some literature suggests that such formulations would have unacceptable prolonged release...

Umberto M Musazzi, Silvia Franzè, Paola Minghetti, Antonella Casiraghi
The use of nanoemulsions in cosmetic products has been enlarged in the last decades because of several formulative advantages (e.g., the improved self-life stability, better texture properties). In addition, nanoemulsions seemed to improve the penetration of active ingredients through the human skin, comparing to conventional emulsion. In this contest, the risk of a higher systemic exposure of consumer to active ingredients, due to the ability of nanoemulsion to enhance permeation, results a critical attribute that should be evaluated for assuring the consumer safety...

Microneedles (MNs) are a novel transdermal drug delivery platform, rapidly progressing from a substantive evidence base, towards commercialisation. As part of this transition, it is important to consider the future use of MNs by older people in order to ensure optimal therapeutic outcomes for this unique and increasing population group. This paper, therefore, considers the use of MNs by those aged over 65 years, investigating insertion parameters in ageing skin, alongside the feasibility and acceptability of the technology...

Here, we present the current challenges in women's reproductive health and the current state-of-the-art treatment and prevention options for STI prevention, contraception, and treatment of infections. We discuss how the versatile platform of electrospun fibers can be applied to each challenge, and postulate at how these technologies could be improved. The void of approved electrospun fiber-based products yields the potential to apply this useful technology to a number of medical applications, many of which are relevant to women's reproductive health...

Doxorubicin is an effective anticancer drug; however, it is cardiotoxic and has poor oral bioavazilability. Quercetin is a plant-based flavonoid with inhibitory effects on P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and CYP3A4 and also antioxidant properties. To mitigate these therapeutic barriers, DoxQ, a novel derivative of doxorubicin, was synthesized by conjugating quercetin to doxorubicin. The purpose of this study is to mechanistically elucidate the in vitro safety and efficacy of DoxQ. Drug release in vitro and cellular uptake by multidrug-resistant canine kidney (MDCK-MDR) cells were quantified by HPLC...

The sense of hearing is essential for permitting human beings to interact with the environment, and its dysfunctions can strongly impact on the quality of life. In this context, the cochlea plays a fundamental role in the transformation of the airborne sound waves into electrical signals, which can be processed by the brain. However, several diseases and external stimuli (e.g., noise, drugs) can damage the sensorineural structures of cochlea, inducing progressive hearing dysfunctions until deafness. In clinical practice, the current pharmacological approaches to treat cochlear diseases are based on the almost exclusive use of systemic steroids...

Lipid-based drug delivery systems, a well-tolerated class of formulations, have been evaluated extensively to enhance the bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs. However, it has been difficult to predict the in vivo performance of lipid dosage forms based on conventional in vitro techniques such as cell monolayer permeability studies because of the complexity of the gastrointestinal processing of lipid formulations. In the current study, we explored the feasibility of coupling Caco-2 and Madin-Darby canine kidney monolayer permeability studies with lipolysis, a promising in vitro technique to evaluate lipid systems...

Needle-free jet injections constitute a crucial method for drug delivery. A novel liquid drug delivery system has been proposed recently, in which pressure atomizes liquid before delivering that atomized liquid to the patient's body; however, the mechanism and efficiency of the system are unclear. This study explored the shot delivery pressure, penetration depth, and cumulative amount of permeation of this system. This system was used to deliver 0.5% (w/v) methylene blue to agarose phantoms at various shot delivery pressures...

Topotecan is a drug that is under investigation for the treatment of neuroblastoma and has been encapsulated into liposomes to improve its therapeutic efficacy. However, liposomal formulations still need to be optimized for drug retention and new techniques to measure drug release are required to better understand this process. Here, a novel in vitro method based on fluorescence de-quenching and an automated microscopy imaging platform were developed for monitoring, in real time, the release of topotecan from a liposomal formulation...

Development of highly concentrated formulations of protein and peptide drugs is a major challenge due to increased susceptibility to aggregation and precipitation. Numerous drug delivery systems including implantable and wearable controlled-release devices require thermally stable formulations with high concentrations due to limited device sizes and long-term use. Herein we report a highly concentrated insulin gel formulation (up to 80 mg/mL, corresponding to 2200 IU/mL), stabilized with a non-ionic amphiphilic triblock copolymer (i...

Curcumin has shown promising inhibitory activity against HER-2-positive tumor cells in vitro but suffers from poor oral bioavailability in vivo. Our lab has previously developed a polymeric microparticle formulation for sustained delivery of curcumin for chemoprevention. The goal of this study was to examine the anticancer efficacy of curcumin-loaded polymeric microparticles in a transgenic mouse model of HER-2 cancer, Balb-neuT. Microparticles were injected monthly, and mice were examined for tumor appearance and growth...

Poly(N-acryloyl glycinamide) polymers are soluble in hot aqueous media that gel rapidly on cooling. This gelatin-like behavior was previously compared with drug delivery requirements. Slow releases were demonstrated in vitro using different model molecules and macromolecules and in vivo using methylene blue. Risperidone is a weak basic drug sparingly soluble in water frequently used to treat patients suffering of schizophrenia. A standard risperidone-poly(N-acryloyl glycinamide) hydrogel formulation was selected from which the drug was allowed to release comparatively in buffered and non-buffered isotonic media at 37 °C under pseudo sink conditions...

Most of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) including ibuprofen at more than 1200 mg/day may generate gastrointestinal and cardiovascular side effects. Bilayer or multiparticulate devices have been developed for controlled release in order to prevent undesired side effects. A new "two release rate (2RR) monolithic tablets" approach is now proposed for controlled release of poorly soluble drugs, particularly NSAIDs. Ibuprofen was used as model drug. This concept is based on a calcium carboxymethyl-starch (CaCMS) complex as a novel, low-cost excipient for monolithic dosage forms easy to manufacture by direct compaction...

Since its inception more than a decade ago, gene silencing mediated by double-stranded small interfering RNA (siRNA) has been widely investigated as a potential therapeutic approach for a variety of diseases. However, the use of siRNA is hampered by its rapid degradation and poor cellular uptake in vitro and in vivo. Recently, peptide-based carriers have been applied to siRNA delivery, as an alternative to the traditional delivery systems. Here, a histidine-containing amphipathic amino acid pairing peptide, C6M3, which can form complexes with siRNA, was used as a new siRNA delivery system...

Gemcitabine is used as a first-line drug for treating many solid tumours. However, it suffers from a major drawback of strong side effects and short plasma half-life because of degradation by enzyme when administered intravenously. Polyesters and copolyesters are the most widely used and preferred class of biodegradable polymer. In the present work, efforts have been made to prepare poly(ethylene glycol) monomethoxy ether-poly(L-lactide) (mPEG-PLLA), a biodegradable amphiphilic copolymer with a view to improve the entrapment and tuned release of hydrophilic drug gemcitabine...

The epidermal skin barrier plays an important role in protecting underlying structures. It allows the passage of low molecular weight lipophilic molecules, but restricts the passage of hydrophilic molecules and macromolecules. The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of transdermal delivery of human growth hormone (hGH) through laser-microporated dermatomed porcine ear skin. The permeation of hGH was evaluated at different laser fluences and micropore densities. In vitro permeation studies were performed on vertical Franz diffusion cells using dermatomed porcine ear skin treated with ablative laser (2940 nm; P...

RNA interference (RNAi)-mediated gene silencing offers a novel treatment and prevention strategy for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. HIV was found to infect and replicate in human brain cells and can cause neuroinfections and neurological deterioration. We designed dual-antibody-modified chitosan/small interfering RNA (siRNA) nanoparticles to deliver siRNA across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) targeting HIV-infected brain astrocytes as a strategy for inhibiting HIV replication. We hypothesized that transferrin antibody and bradykinin B2 antibody could specifically bind to the transferrin receptor (TfR) and bradykinin B2 receptor (B2R), respectively, and deliver siRNA across the BBB into astrocytes as potential targeting ligands...

In search of an effective and less toxic absorption enhancer, we synthesized primary amine acetylation of generation 2 polyamidoamine (G2 PAMAM) dendrimer (Ac-G2) by the reaction of G2 PAMAM dendrimer with acetic anhydride, and evaluated the effects of Ac-G2 on the intestinal absorption of poorly absorbable water-soluble drugs using an in situ closed-loop method in rats. The results indicated that Ac50-G2 had a greatest absorption enhancing effect for 5(6)-carboxyfluorescein (CF) in various acetylation levels of G2 PAMAM dendrimers...
