LS and PS are widely used in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. However, their bioavailabilities are very low. This study was aimed to increase the permeation rates of both statins, with ultimate goal of enhancing bioavailability. Rabbit intestinal mucosae were mounted over cell-opening of 0.64 cm². Bile salt solutions in saline (3.5 mL) were .. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
