Physical and chemical permeation enhancers in transdermal delivery of terbutaline sulphate


The efficacy of a magnetic field to act as a permeation enhancer was demonstrated. Because in vitro and in vivo performance of F1 and F2 were comparable, the substitution of chemical enhancers by magnetic field in transdermal delivery systems appears to be possible.

Keywords: Magnetophoresis, Terbutaline sulphate, Transdermal drug delivery system
