An oil-in-water solvent evaporation method was used to prepare cyclosporin A (CyA)-loaded particles varying in size (nanoparticles, 'small-sized' microparticles, 'large-sized' microparticles), polymer compositions [poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) 50/50, PLGA 85/15, poly(D,L-lactic acid) (PLA)] and additive fatty acid ester (ethyl myristate; EM)....

Interactions of phenolic compounds 4-hexylresorcinol and 3,4-dimethylphenol with esters were studied using hexane-ester cosolvent systems by both phase solubility and partitioning methods. The data obtained by the phase solubility method were variable and could not be analyzed by any mathematical...

In a variety of clinical and forensic situations long term use of alcohol must be monitored. In this project we explore the utility of fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEE) in this regard. Additionally, we propose a cut-off value of FAEE...
