Feasibility of an Electrode-Reservoir Device for Transdermal Drug Delivery by Noninvasive Skin Electroporation

IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2007

Electrical creation of aqueous pathways across the skin's outer layer [stratum corneum (SC)] provides an approach to transdermal delivery of medium-size water-soluble compounds. However, nerve stimulation should be avoided. Here, we show that a microstructured electrode array can significantly confine the electric field to the nerve-free SC. The prototype electrode-reservoir device (ERD) contains field-confining electrodes and a fluorescent drug surrogate ...

  • Feasibility of an Electrode-Reservoir Device for Transdermal Drug Delivery by Noninvasive Skin Electroporation

    Electrical creation of aqueous pathways across the skin's outer layer [stratum corneum (SC)] provides an approach to transdermal delivery of medium-size water-soluble compounds. However, nerve stimulation should be avoided. Here, we show that a microstructured electrode array can significantly confine the electric field to the nerve-free SC. The prototype electrode-reservoir device (ERD) contains field-confining electrodes and a fluorescent drug surrogate [sulphorhodamine (SR)]. In vivo human experiments at the forearm with approximately rectangular voltage pulses up to 500 V and 1-ms duration cause electroporation as measured by skin resistance change but only rarely caused sensation. Human skin in vitro experiments with such pulses up to 300 V transported SR across the SC. Our results are supported by a model's prediction of the field in the ERD and nearby tissue

  • Ligand-conjugated quantum dots for targeted drug delivery to nerve cells

    Increased interest in nanoparticle quantum dots as fluorescent probes possessing extended photostability, multi-color capability, and surface- controllable properties has made apparent their promising potential for biological and therapeutic applications. As an approach towards surface- functionalized nanoparticle drug delivery, here we report the development of quantum dots (QDs) complexed with the small peptide hormone /spl beta/NGF. Surface modification and composition of ligand-conjugated QDs were confirmed using atomic force microscopy. Bioactivity and visual localization of ligand- QD complexes was assayed in live cells. Despite known structural and chemical stringency of ligand-receptor activation, we provide evidence to support activation of cell-surface trkA membrane receptor channels and downstream modulation of neurite sprouting. This QD-based capability bears significance for development of surface-conjugated nanoparticle drug delivery.

  • Capsule-based ultrasound-mediated targeted gastrointestinal drug delivery

    Diseases which are prevalent in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, such as Crohn's disease, are a topic of increasing concern because diagnosis and specific treatment are difficult and may be ineffective. New techniques are therefore sought after and this paper describes a proof-of-concept tethered capsule for targeted drug delivery (TDD) in the GI tract. The capsule consists of a camera, illumination, a drug delivery channel and an ultrasound (US) transducer. The transducer is described in detail, including a comparison of different piezoceramic materials that has been carried out. It was found that PZ54 (Ferroperm Piezoceramics, Kvistgaard, Denmark) was the most suitable material for our application. When driven at 4 V<sub>pp</sub>, the outer diameter 5 mm PZ54 transducer operates at a frequency f = 4.05 MHz providing an acoustic pressure, P<sub>ac</sub> = 125 kPa, with a beam diameter, BD = 0.75 mm at the focus. Pressures in the range 50 - 300 kPa have been previously reported as suitable for sonoporation, a process vital in many TDD applications, so this is a promising result. Basic functional testing of the capsule was performed by supplying glass microbubbles (MBs) through the drug delivery channel into the US focus, monitored via the onboard camera. It was found that the acoustic radiation forces have a clear influence on the MBs, significantly changing their direction at the US focus. This suggests that drugs may be targeted to specific tissue in the GI tract by the new capsule. The results translate into a capsule configuration with the potential to be clinically and biologically useful.

  • Antibody-based molecular communication for targeted drug delivery systems

    Antibody-based drug delivery systems (ADDS) are established as the most promising therapeutic methods for the treatment of human cancers and other diseases. ADDS are composed of small molecules (antibodies) that selectively bind to receptors (antigens) expressed by the diseased cells. In this paper, the Molecular Communication (MC) paradigm, where the delivery of molecules is abstracted as the delivery of information, is extended to be applied to the design and engineering of ADDS. The authors have previously developed a straightforward framework for the modeling of Particulate Drug Delivery Systems (PDDS) using nano-sized molecules. Here, the specificities of antibody molecules are taken into account to provide an analytical model of ADDS transport. The inputs of the MC model of PDDS are the geometric properties of the antibodies and the topology of the blood vessels where they are propagated. Numerical results show that the analytical MC model is in good agreement with finite-element simulations, and that the anisotropy is an important factor influencing ADDS.

  • A Drug Delivery System Based on Polymer Nanotubes

    A generic drug delivery system based on polymer nanotubes was design. Polymer nanotube bundles were used as drug delivery channels within a device. Because this device is very small and biocompatible, it can be implanted at any specific infectious location. The drug diffusion within the device was analyzed using the finite element method and the diffusion rate was calculated using Fick's law. The results showed the possibility of using this polymer- nanotube device as a drug delivery system that can provide a constant delivery rate and target a specific location.

  • Model drug delivery by transiently stable microbubbles produced by a microfluidic device

    Ultrasound-mediated drug delivery using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and microbubbles holds promise as a potential therapy for diseases of the vasculature. In this work, we evaluate the therapeutic potential of an on- demand microbubble production framework using a flow-focusing microfluidic device to generate microbubbles at the tip of the IVUS catheter for direct administration into the bloodstream. Rat aortic smooth muscle cells were placed in a flow chamber, 8 μm diameter monodisperse microbubbles produced within the flow chamber by a flow-focusing microfluidic device, and ultrasound was applied to enhance uptake of a surrogate drug (calcein). Flow rates up to 18 mL/s and acoustic peak-negative-pressures up to 300 kPa were investigated. Microbubbles produced by the microfluidic device were stabilized with a polyethylene glycol-40-stearate shell and had either a perfluorbutane (PFB) or nitrogen gas core. Calcein delivery was observed at lower acoustic pressures with nitrogen microbubbles than with PFB microbubbles, and maximal delivery occurred at a flow rate of 9 mL/s. These results demonstrate the potential of transiently stable microbubbles produced by a microfluidic device for enhancing localized drug delivery.

  • Out-of-plane cup shaped stainless steel microneedle array for drug delivery

    To improve the transdermal delivery of drug, there are many techniques have been reported (Chemical, Iontophoresis, Sonophoresis and Microneedle). Among these techniques, the microneedle technology gained the more attention in recent years. Mainly, there are two types (Solid and Hollow) of microneedles have been reported for the successful drug delivery application. In this paper, we report on the fabrication of out-of-plane solid Stainless Steel (SS) microneedles and formation of microcup structure within them suitable for drug delivery application. Array of out-of-plane solid SS microneedles were fabricated using Electric Discharge Machining (EDM) method. Subsequently, the microcup structures on the solid SS microneedles were formed using Focused Ion Beam (FIB) technique. The microcup structure on the microneedles acts as a dedicated region to fill the drug, so that the possible drug leakage while inserting the microneedles into the skin can be avoided. The drug filling into the microcup structures was performed using drop coating method. This coating method in combination with cup shaped microneedle array enables to deliver multiple drugs simultaneously in desired proportion.

  • Novel superparamagnetic Core(Shell) nanoparticles for magnetic targeted drug delivery and hyperthermia treatment

    Superparamagnetic /spl gamma/-Fe/sub 2/O/sub 3/(Au) core(shell) nanoparticles with narrow size distribution and different shell thicknesses are synthesized. On conjugation with serum albumin, this set of particles forms an ideal candidate to be used in magnetic targeted drug delivery and hyperthermia treatment. In this contribution, the synthesis and characterizations of their size, optical, and magnetic properties are reported. It has also been shown that using different shell thicknesses, it is possible to tune not only the plasmon response of the gold shell but also the magnetic property of these superparamagnetic nanoparticles.

  • Micro check valve integrated magnetically actuated micropump for implantable drug delivery

    An intraocular implantable magnetically actuated micropump for drug delivery is proposed. A magnetic nanoparticle-PDMS composite membrane assembly in the micropump can be actuated in magnetic field, and it causes drug release. The membrane assembly is composed of thin elastic PDMS membrane and thick magnetic nanoparticle-PDMS composite (MNPC) to obtain maximum deflection of membrane within the confined room of micropump. A micro check valve composed of two PDMS layers is integrated to realize on-demand drug delivery and effectively prevent drug diffusion without magnetic field.

  • An implantable micropump prototype for focal drug delivery

    In this paper, we present a responsive drug delivery system (DDS) that is capable of directly injecting antiepileptic drugs at electrographic seizure onset. This may result in better controlling the epileptic seizures. This miniaturized prototype consists of a preamplifier, a seizure detector, a micro-pump unit and a wireless control module; however in this paper we will only focus on micropump prototype. The proposed micropump is composed of a deflectable membrane which is made of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). An electromagnetic method is used to actuate the PDMS membrane in a frequency of 143 Hz in order to provide a maximum flow rate of 2.9 ml/min. The experimental results demonstrate a high accuracy and low power dissipation suitable for implantable responsive drug delivery.
