is a series of educational and interactive modules Laboratory Online offered by the Simon group. The purpose of the project is to enhance knowledge in drug-delivery technologies and underlying engineering principles.
Within this user-friendly environment, practitioners and researchers can enter their own process parameter values in corresponding boxes (or use the default quantities provided). The findings of the simulation study are monitored in real-time by pressing near the bottom of the page. the red-shaded button
Two-Dimensional Drug Transport Across the Skin
L. Simon and J. Ospina
This program estimates the delivery rate, the effective time constant and the cumulative amount of drug permeated through the skin.
The dimensions of the patch and the dermal layer are given in Fig. 1.
During treatment, the drug concentration in the vehicle remains virtually constant. The medication is eliminated at the skin-capillary interface and absorbed into the systemic circulation [ 1].
