Nanoparticles (NP) are known to increase the efficacy and/ or to reduce the toxicity of drugs, thus attracted interest in the last decade. Timolol maleate-loaded ocular nanodispersions were prepared by a new technique based on salting-out process between two completely miscible solvents. Eudragit S-100 used as the nanoparticles- forming polymer.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
