Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

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.
