1.The potential use of novel chitosan-coated deformable liposomes in an ocular drug delivery system.
Chen H1, Pan H2, Li P1, Wang H3, Wang X1, Pan W1, Yuan Y4. Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. 2016 Mar 22;143:455-462. doi: 10.1016/j.colsurfb.2016.03.061. [Epub ahead of print]
In this study, novel chitosan-coated deformable liposomes (DL-CS) were proposed as an ocular drug delivery system to prolong pre-corneal retention, and improve transcorneal penetration and absorption. Flurbiprofen-loaded deformable liposomes (FP-DL) were prepared by a modified ethanol injection method and then coated with chitosan. Both DL and DL-CS exhibited a homogeneous particle size distribution, high encapsulation efficiency and good stability. After coating with 0.1% CS, the zeta potential was shifted from negative to positive. The apparent permeability coefficient of FP-DL-0.1% CS evaluated using isolated rabbit corneas was 1.29-, 1.95- and 4.59- fold greater than that of uncoated FP-DL, conventional liposomes and FP solution (P<0.01), respectively. The in vivo pre-corneal retention time and elimination dynamics were assessed using gamma scintigraphy technology. The area under the remaining activity-time of FP-DL-0.1% CS was prolonged 2.

Background Viral infections cause most cases of pharyngitis (sore throat); consequently, antibiotics are generally not warranted. However, a treatment targeting pain and inflammation, e.g. a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory spray, may be helpful for patients. Objective To evaluate the efficacy and safety of flurbiprofen 8.75 mg spray. Methods This randomised, double-blind, parallel group study was conducted at six community-based clinical research centres in Australia and two in New Zealand. Adults with sore throat due to upper respiratory tract infection (onset ≤ four days) took one dose of flurbiprofen (n = 249) or placebo spray (n = 256); after six hours, they could re-dose every three-six hours as required, for three days (max. five doses/day). The primary endpoint was the area under the change from baseline curve in throat soreness from zero-two hours (AUC0-2h). The change from baseline in other sore throat symptoms also assessed efficacy.
3.Evaluation of Mutual Drug-Drug Interaction within Geneva Cocktail for Cytochrome P450 Phenotyping using Innovative Dried Blood Sampling Method.

Cytochrome P450 (CYP) activity can be assessed using a 'cocktail' phenotyping approach. Recently, we have developed a cocktail (Geneva cocktail) which combines the use of low-dose probes with a low-invasiveness dried blood spots (DBS) sampling technique and a single analytical method for the phenotyping of six major CYP isoforms. We have previously demonstrated that modulation of CYP activity after pre-treatment with CYP inhibitors/inducer could be reliably predicted using Geneva cocktail. In order to further validate this cocktail, in this study we have verified whether probe drugs contained in the latter cause mutual drug-drug interactions. In a randomized, 4-way, Latin-square cross-over study, 30 healthy volunteers received low-dose caffeine, flurbiprofen, omeprazole, dextromethorphan and midazolam (a previously validated combination with no mutual drug-drug interactions); fexofenadine alone; bupropion alone or all 7 drugs simultaneously (Geneva cocktail).

The study can be useful for understanding the interaction of camptothecin with human serum albu- min. There are two forms of camptothecin (the carboxylate form (CPT-C) and the lactone form (CPT-L)) but only the lactone one is pharmacologically active. It was reported earlier that in the presence of HSA, the active lactone form of camptothecin changes to inactive carboxylate form and it reduces the antitumor activities of camptothecin. However, those studies were performed at physiological pH (7.4) and with non-oxidized and non-glycosylated albumin. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of oxidative stress, glycosylation, pH changes and competitor drugs on inactivation of lactone form of camptothecin in albumin solution using measurements of fluorescence anisotropy spectroscopy. It was tried to prove that in vivo camptothecin may be present in higher amount in lactone form than previously thought. Due to a reduction of pH value, a decreased rate of hydrolysis from CPT-L to CPT-C was observed.
