In an attempt to optimize the anti- hyperlipidemic effect and reduce statins induced hepatotoxicity, Atorvastatin Calcium (ATC) transdermal proniosomal gel (PNG) was developed. Different non-ionic surfactants (NISs) (Spans, Tweens, Cremophor RH 40 and Brij 52) were incorporated in the vesicle’s lipid bilayer, in combination with lecithin. PNG formulae were characterized for encapsulation efficiency percent (% EE), vesicle size, polydispersity index (PDI) and zeta potential (ZP). Ex-vivo permeation study was performed using full thickness rat skin measuring drug flux and skin permeability coefficients. The pharmacodynamic performance of optimized transdermal ATC- PNG on both lipid profile and liver biomarkers was assessed and compared to oral ATC administration in poloxamer 407-induced hyperlipidemic rats. The liver tissues were subjected to histological examination as well. The results revealed nano-size range vesicles with relatively high ATC entrapment efficiency. Ex-vivo results demonstrated the permeation superiority of ATC proniosomes over free drug. Pharmacodynamic study revealed that transdermal administration of ATC- PNG succeeded in retaining the anti-hyperlipidemic efficacy of orally administered ATC without elevating liver biomarkers. The histological examination signified the role of optimized ATC-PNG in hindering statin- induced hepatocellular damage. The obtained results suggested a promising, easy-to-manufacture and effective ATC proniosomal gel for safe treatment of hyperlipidemia.

Colloidal (-)- epigallocatechin-3-gallate vesicular systems for prevention and treatment of skin cancer: A comprehensive experimental study with preclinical investigation

Skin carcinogenesis is a common malignancy affecting humans worldwide, which could benefit from nutraceuticals as a solution to the drawbacks of conventional skin cancer treatment. (−)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is a promising nutraceutical in this regard; however, it suffers chemical instability and low bioavailability resulting in inefficient delivery. Therefore, EGCG encapsulation in ultradeformable colloidal vesicular systems, namely: penetration enhancer-containing vesicles (PEVs), ethosomes and transethosomes (TEs) for topical administration has been attempted in this study to overcome the problems associated with the use of free EGCG. The prepared vesicles were characterized for their entrapment efficiency, TEM visualization, chemical compatibility, antioxidant properties, ex-vivo skin deposition, photodegradation and physical stability after storage. Most of the prepared vesicles exhibited reasonable skin deposition and preservation of the inherent antioxidant properties of EGCG with good physical stability. EGCG-loaded PEVs and TEs exhibited an inhibitory effect on epidermoid carcinoma cell line (A431) in addition to reduced tumor sizes in mice, confirmed with histopathological analysis and biochemical quantification of skin oxidative stress biomarkers; glutathione, superoxide dismutase and catalase, as well as lipid peroxidation. EGCG PEVs succeeded in offering an effective delivery system targeting skin cancer, which is worthy of further experimentation.
