Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Introduction of a drug or polymer directly into the conjunctival sac should, in theory, facilitate the maximum level of efficacy. In practice, most material undergoes non-productive loss. The work of David Maurice facilitated a better understanding of drug entry by the study of probes delivered in several formulations, and by the construction of instruments to study probe distribution. This review describes research on the applications of gamma scintigraphy to follow the residence of polymers in the eye and the evaluation of the data to assess potential new materials. Finally, our progress on the construction of an ocular spectrometer to directly follow drug entry following topical administration is described.
