  • Publication number: 20200406015
    Abstract: A transdermal delivery system for delivery of a triptan into a tissue membrane of a subject. The system includes a transdermal microporation apparatus for heating a skin surface and a triptan drug delivery patch. The drug delivery patch comprises a top layer comprising an adhesive, a middle layer comprising the triptan, and a bottom layer. A method for treating a subject comprises identifying a subject having a migraine, using the transdermal microporation apparatus to open a plurality of micropores in the skin of the subject, and applying the triptan drug delivery patch to the subject's skin over the micropores for a period of time effective to deliver the triptan through the micropores in an amount effective to treat the subject's migraine.

  • Patent number: 10589497
    Abstract: A biaxially orientated polyester film has a PL/VL ratio of 0.3 to 1.2, PL and VL representing the average diameter of the convex portions and the average diameter of the concave portions, respectively, that are defined on the basis of a slice level with a height of 0 nm (reference plane) in a roughness curve determined for at least one surface using a three dimensional surface roughness meter, and the convex portions accounting for an area ratio of 30% to 51% of the reference plane. The biaxially oriented polyester film is excellent in travelling property, slitting property, and dimensional stability, and serves, when used for magnetic recording medium production, to provide a high density magnetic recording medium having a smooth magnetic layer, suffering little dimensional change due to variations in environmental parameters such as temperature and humidity or due to storage, and having good electromagnetic conversion characteristics with little dropout.
