Methods to simulate rubbing of topical formulation for in vitro skin permeation studies

Publication date: 15 March 2017 Source:International Journal of Pharmaceutics, Volume 519, Issues 1–2 Author(s): Hiep X. Nguyen, Ashana Puri, Ajay K. Banga Rubbing a topical formulation on skin is generally assumed to enhance drug penetration. The aim of this study was to demonstrate different techniques such as using glass rod, rheometer, and gloved finger for rubbing a 2% salicylic acid gel on skin and investigate their effect on in vitro permeation of salicylic acid through dermatomed porcine ear skin. The studies included evaluation of the gel’s rheological properties, gel distribution on skin surface, in vitro permeability, drug distribution in skin, skin extraction recovery, and mass balance. Rubbing with a gloved finger resulted in a uniform gel layer with a thickness of 49.61±15.33μm on the skin surface. No significant difference between the different test groups was observed in terms of the cumulative amount of drug that permeated in 24h (p> 0.05). Drug levels in stratum corneum, epidermis, and dermis were also analyzed. Rubbing with gloved finger delivered significantly higher amount of drug into the skin layers as compared to other test groups (p< 0.05). Amount of drug extracted from skin was reliably correlated to the actual drug levels in skin (R2 =0.99). Considering drug amounts in different compartments, mass balance ranged from 75.86±2.90% to 80.44±2.99%. Graphical abstract

Authors: Veličković J, Palibrk I, Miličić B, Veličković D, Jovanović B, Rakić G, Petrović M, Bumbaširević V Abstract Lactate levels are widely used as an indicator of outcome in critically ill patients. We investigated the prognostic value of postoperative lactate levels for postoperative complications (POC), mortality and length of hospital stay after elective major abdominal surgery. A total of 195 patients were prospectively evaluated. Lactate levels were assessed on admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) [L0], 4 hours (L4), 12 hours (L12), and 24 hours (L24) after the operation. Demographic...

Authors: Ahued-Ortega JA, León-García PE, Hernández-Pérez E Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Natriuretic peptide type B (BNP) is a marker of myocardium injury. This peptide has been associated with metabolic risk markers, although controversy exists in this regard. The aim of the present study was to determine the correlation of plasma BNP levels with metabolic risk parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective, observational study that included 152 patients, who were classified according to their clinical diagnosis as patients with metabolic syndrome. Plasma BNP levels and cl...

The aim of this study was to investigate how carvedilol therapy influences the survival rate, ejection fraction and NYHA class in these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted study on heart failure patients with preserved systolic function from the Croatian heart failure registry who were hospitalized in the period between 2005 and 2010. We enrolled patients with carvedil...
