Modified microemulsions (MEs), termed by us nanodomains (NDs), seem to be suitable vehicles for dermal drug delivery due to their high surface area and the interface enriched with membrane recognizing agents, penetration enhancers, and other components. However, liquid nanodomains do

The eye is the specialized part of the body and is comprised of numerous physiological ocular barriers that limit the drug absorption at the action site. Regardless of various efforts, efficient topical ophthalmic drug delivery remains unsolved, and thus, it

Transdermal delivery of methotrexate (MTX) was investigated by using the solid-in-oil (S/O) technique. Because MTX was coated with nonionic surfactant molecules, the resulting complex was easy to dissolve in various organic solvents and provided a transparent solution in isopropyl myristate

In principle, maximum transepidermal fluxes of solutes should be similar for different vehicles, except when the solute or vehicle modifies the skin. Here we estimated maximum flux, stratum corneum solubility, diffusivity and permeability coefficient for a range of similarly sized

In this study, microemulsion microstructures, key formulation variables, and their relationship to drug transdermal permeation enhancement were investigated. A microemulsion system with high water soluble capacity was developed, using isopropyl myristate, Labrasol, and Cremophor EL as oil, surfactant, and co-surfactant
