Methods to Investigate In Vitro Skin Metabolism

The skin is the largest organ in the human body. It contains enzymes capable of drug metabolism.

In this presentation, we focus on:

  • the physiology of the skin and an overview of skin enzymology
  • the role of skin metabolism in absorption, efficacy, homeostasis, drug delivery and toxicity
  • adverse reactions in the skin including the mechanism behind skin sensitisation
  • in vitro methods for investigating skin metabolism
