I. Nasal administration allows for direct transport of active substances from the olfactory epithelium to the brain. In nose-to-brain drug delivery in vitro methods can be set up to study permeation characteristics and guide formulation development.
II. To study the permeation of antiviral ribavirin, inverse agonist for the cannabinoid receptor.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
