Main Article Content
methyl cellulose (6cps, 15cps, and K4M) for the development of transdermal drug delivery systems of nicorandil,
an antianginal drug. Prepared matrix-type patches were evaluated for their physicochemical characterization followed by
in vitro evaluation. Selected formulations were subjected for their ex vivo studies on porcine ear skin.
