Topical nanoparticles can enhance the permeation of therapeutic agents into biological tissues, but the mechanism by which they function is not yet fully understood.
Carboxyl-modified polystyrene nanoparticles (NPPSCOOH) and silica nanoparticles (NPSiO2) were added to tetracaine solutions and drug accumulation at the nanoparticle surface was..
