The mechanism of skin penetration enhancement by ultrasound under sonophoresis (US) or by an electrical field under iontophoresis (IP) was investigated using hairless mouse skin in vitro. The seven model chemicals with different molecular weights (122-1485) were dissolved in a...
Acoustic cavitation as an enhancing mechanism of low-frequency sonophoresis for transdermal drug delivery.December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Biol Pharm Bull | Comments
We investigated the role of acoustic cavitation on sonophoretic skin permeation of calcein, a model permeant, across excised hairless rat skin. Three different frequencies (41, 158, 445 kHz) and various intensities (60 to 300 mW/cm(2)) of ultrasound were applied. Cavitation...
Beyond transcription, gene expression is potently controlled through processes that affect pre-mRNA splicing and maturation, as well as mRNA transport, turnover, storage, and translation. These events are tightly regulated by two main classes of trans-binding factors,...
Educational intervention to improve physician reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in a primary care setting in complementary and alternative medicine.December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by BMC Public Health | Comments
BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown that adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are underreported. This may be particularly true of ADRs associated with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Data on CAM-related ADRs, however, are sparse.Objective was to evaluate the impact of...
