Iontophoresis - possibilities begin to be realised

Abstract

Delivering peptides across the skin is a tall order due to the large molecule sizes involved. However, with the aid of low levels of electric current, such delivery may be possible. Although the idea of iontophoresis is now being taken seriously, there are still few studies that provide hard evidence of its efficacy. To help make up this shortfall, some of the recent work was presented at the IBC conference, Drug Delivery and Targeting Systems, which was held in London, UK, at the end of last year.
