Transdermal Drug Delivery using a Specialized Cavitation Seed for Ultrasound.

08:00 EDT 1st April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Transdermal Drug Delivery using a Specialized Cavitation Seed for Ultrasound."

The Sonophoresis, which utilizes ultrasound for transdermal drug delivery (TDD), can improve the efficiency of drug delivery for a variety of drugs predominantly due to caviation effect. In order to increase the efficacy of sonophoresis, we propose an alternative cavitation seed specialized for sonophoresis, which can be concentrated on the skin surface by gravity adapting perfluorohexane as core.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.

Systems for the delivery of drugs to target sites of pharmacological actions. Technologies employed include those concerning drug preparation, route of administration, site targeting, metabolism, and toxicity.

Poisonous animal secretions forming fluid mixtures of many different enzymes, toxins, and other substances. These substances are produced in specialized glands and secreted through specialized delivery systems (nematocysts, spines, fangs, etc.) for disabling prey or predator.

Artificial, single or multilaminar vesicles (made from lecithins or other lipids) that are used for the delivery of a variety of biological molecules or molecular complexes to cells, for example, drug delivery and gene transfer. They are also used to study membranes and membrane proteins.

A standardized nomenclature for clinical drugs and drug delivery devices. It links its names to many of the drug vocabularies commonly used in pharmacy management.
