Members don't see this ad.

Im a pharmacist , currently pursuing Doctorate in Drug delivery systems. My topic of interest being Non Invasive Drug Delivery across Blood Brain Barrier.

Could anyone suggest me plausible non invasive routes to deliver the drug to the brain...

Besides this, provide some insights in the utility of the Transdermal patch (TDP) for brain disorders and the apt skin site for TDP to facilitate rapid drug absorption, minimal metabolism and localized delivery to the brain in shortest period.


Please do reply...:)

Huh? This isn't a pharmacy basic science forum. However, I did have a patient that had a neuropathy, and treated it by rubbing a salve containing baclofen, amitriptyline, and some other medication he couldn't remember, on his feet.

For someone "pursuing a doctorate," your approach to research is pretty lame. Ever heard of Medline? Try it some time; it's usually much higher yield than asking a bunch of premeds to do your work for you.

Are you sure this was a salve and not a balm?

He called it a salve. Last I checked, they're the same thing -- thick oil-based topicals. Anyway, he said it worked. Go figure.

Impregnate the medication into lead and deliver with gun.

Ohh... You said NON-invasive.

Some people say violence is never the answer. I say that it just depends on how you phrase the question.
