    Abstract : Drug delivery to the nasal and ocular mucosa faces several obstacles. One of these is from the effective clearance mechanisms present in the nose and eye. Polymer gels with suitable rheological properties can facilitate the absorption of poorly absorbed drugs by increasing the contact time of the drug with the mucosa. READ MORE

  2. 2. Preparation and characterisation of biodegradable microspheres for the delivery of bioactive compounds
