Critical Criteria for Assessing the Permeation Performance of Topical Formulas on Animal Skin: Standardization of IVPT Protocols

E. Dauphin-Chanard; A. Forest; C. Deleglise; D. Hoste; P. Caisse

Poster PBP 2022

To assess the performance of dermal/transdermal formulation, in vitro permeation test (IVPT) with Franz cells is a reliable, reproducible, and widely used technique1. Due to its histological similarity, pig skin is a common model used as an alternative to human skin2. However, careful consideration should be given to the pig skin preparation, as both permeability and lag time can be greatly affected. The main variation sources are pig skin storage time, skin integrity and thickness, sample quantity and methodology to apply the formulation on the membrane. This study aims to investigate the critical parameters affecting the data’s accuracy by evaluating the permeation of a lidocaine hydrochloride-based gel (LID HCl) on pig skin.

Investigation of the permeation enhancer strategy on benzoylaconitine transdermal patch: the relationship between transdermal enhancement strength and physicochemical properties of permeation enhancer

Liu C, Farah N, Weng W, Jiao B, Shen M, Fang L

Eur J Pharm Sci. 2019 Oct 1;138:105009. doi: 10.1016/j.ejps.2019.105009. Epub 2019 Jul 12.

In this study several permeation enhancers are evaluated for their ability to permeate high molecular weight benzoylaconitine. The results showed that Plurol® Oleique CC 497 enabled the highest permeation. FT-IR studies demonstrated that the enhancer had strong interactions with the Stratum corneum, both in the hydrophilic and lipophilic regions. The optimized patch formulation showed excellent analgesic and antiinflammatory effect.

Synergising excipients to boost skin delivery. A case study with lidocaine hydrochloride

E. Dauphin-Chanard; A. Forest; C. Deleglise; M. Ducros; D. Marchaud

Poster Skin Forum 2019

In this study the authors showed that combining an efficient solubilizer  and  penetration enhancer achieves a synergic effect which enhances the passive diffusion of LID HCl through the Strat-M membrane in this Franz cell model.

Development of a daphnetin transdermal patch using chemical enhancer strategy: insights of the  enhancement effect of Transcutol P and the assessment of pharmacodynamics.

Shen M, Liu C, Wan X, Farah N, Fang L.

Drug Dev Ind Pharm. 2018 Oct;44(10):1642-1649. doi: 10.1080/03639045.2018.1483391. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

A patch for transdermal delivery of daphnetin was developped using Transcutol® P as permeation enhancer.

The study showed:

  • 10% Transcutol® P led to a significant increase in drug release from the patch.
  • Patch exhibited analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity
