New ways to design safer & more effective topical (transdermal) drug delivery announced in the PNAS
...PEs help drug molecules penetrate into the skin by changing
the structure of the SC. Different CPEs penetrate the skin in unique ways. For example, some make microscopic holes in the SC by removing lipids. Others insert themselves in already-crowded lipid bi-layers to disorganize them. Some can also break ope...
