Criteria for the bioanalytical method and its application in dermatopharmacokinetic (DPK) study in pig skin (ex vivo) using metronidazole

Conventional pharmacokinetic profiles of drugs are described mainly by plotting drug plasma concentration versus time. However, topical drugs are designed to target local tissue and, as such, have limited systemic absorption. For these drugs, the pharmacokinetic measurements in the local tissue (skin) are of more importance than systemic measurements. In this context, this study aims to develop and discuss the...
