Abstract Background: In the system of the iontophoresis, the external electric field made the ions in the system moving directly, then, the current was generated. Because the current was contributed by all ions in the system, and the small ions with large amount often had higher conductibility than the drug ions, the fraction of the total current contributed by the drug ions was often low. It was the main reason for the generally low efficiency of the transdermal iontophoretic drug delivery. Objectives: The objective of this study was to find a novel method to increase the fraction of the total current contributed by the drug ions so as to enhance the drug's iontophoretic delivery. Method: Iontophoretic transport of nefopam hydrochloride solution and iontophoretic transport of nefopam assisted by ion-exchange materials, including ion-exchange resin, ion-exchange membrane and ion-exchange fiber, across the rat skin were investigated. Results: Both in vitro and in vivo iontophoretic transport experiments showed that the efficiency of the nefopam-fiber iontophoretic system for nefopam permeating across rat skin was the highest among four iontophoretic systems (nefopam solution, nefopam-resin, nefopam-membrane and nefopam-fiber). Conclusion: The results of this study suggested that there was an enhancement of nefopam across rat skin by ion-exchange fibers in ion-exchange fibers assisted iontophoresis. The present study has demonstrated the potential of a new approach of using ion-exchange fibers to improve the efficiency of the transdermal iontophoresis for cationizable drugs.
