Prescription Drug Patches Gaining Ground, Tackling New Therapies
..., the technology is set to make further inroads as transdermal
patches for a host of new conditions wind their way through the development and clinical trial process. Growth in demand for prescription drug patches is being driven by several factors ?factors with strong demographic and population trend underpinn...
...s have been made in the past decade, especially in transdermal
(through the skin) and nasal immunization. "Unfortunately, because of the development costs of new immunization methods, use of needle-free immunization might initially push the direct cost of immunizations higher," says Mitragotri. "But the seconda...
New antimicrobial compound adheres to skin to promote healing
...hat Capomacchia was also working with vitamin E in transdermal
applications, and their collaboration began. Ritchie said that the bioadhesive could have numerous human applications, particularly with swimmers or other athletes and people in military settings. "In high-school athletics especially, getting stap...
Study shows pine bark naturally decreases severe chronic venous insufficiency
... lowering the composite edema score by 32%. The transdermal
oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration in the lower legs was estimated with small sensors attached to the skin. Pycnogenol® treatment was found to significantly increase tissue oxygen and lower CO2, suggesting a considerable improvement in blood cir...
Supercomputing equipment to advance the frontiers of computational biology
...drug delivery systems such as drug eluting stents, transdermal
patches, and inhalers. To be successful, these simulations must run efficiently and effectively on the latest generation of high-performance computing equipment. The project will help researchers develop critical computational biology tools that o...
