An Introduction to Transdermal Drug Delivery Systems

In the first part of this article in the Autumn 2001 issue of PMPS, we analysed the varieties, the structure and the basic components of patches. This 'promenade' was important in order to better understand how these drug delivery systems are composed. In this second part we will follow the processes involved in the production of the two major classes, matrix and liquid reservoir patches. We will then finish with a detailed description of the whole production chain for the most popular class at present - the matrix systems.

PROTEIN:PROTEIN INTERACTION ANALYSIS

IBA GmbH

Groth et al., 2007 and Jasencakova et al., 2010 Protein:protein-interactions (PPI) govern almost all important processes in living organisms. Thus, their rapid and accurate determination and investigation is a major challenge in life sciences. The extremely efficient and fast One-STrEP (Twin-Strep) system is suitable for the isolation of functional protein complexes and subsequent mass spectrometry analysis leads to the identification of protein complex components (Junttila et al., 2005) as it is shown in the following studies.
