This study aims to develop scaffold for transdermal drug delivery method (TDDM) using electrospinning technique from polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and hydroxyethylcellulose (HEC). The fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) loaded on ethosomes (FITC@Eth) was used as a drug model. The prepared PVA/HEC/FITC@Eth scaffold was characterized via scanning electron microscope (SEM) that show morphology change by adding FITC@Eth. Also, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), mechanical properties, X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermal gravimetric (TGA) analysis show that the addition of FITC@Eth to PVA/HEC does not change the scaffold properties. Franz diffusion cells were used for in vitro skin permeation experiments using rat dorsal skins. The FITC@Eth penetration was better than that of free FITC due to the presence of ethosome which enhance the potential skin targeting. In conclusion, the prepared PVA/HEC/FITC@Eth scaffold can serve as a promising transdermal scaffold for sustained FITC release.

A polymer prepared from polyvinyl acetates by replacement of the acetate groups with hydroxyl groups. It is used as a pharmaceutic aid and ophthalmic lubricant as well as in the manufacture of surface coatings artificial sponges, cosmetics, and other products.
A polyvinyl resin used extensively in the manufacture of plastics, including medical devices, tubing, and other packaging. It is also used as a rubber substitute.
A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.
