Penetration and distribution of thiocolchicoside from a commercially available foam (Miotens 0.25%, w/v) through human excised full-thickness skin were evaluated using two different in vitro apparatus: a Franz diffusion cell and a Saarbruecken penetration model-based cell. In order to evaluate the intrinsic capability of the drug to penetrate into the skin, a simple drug aqueous solution prepared at the same drug concentration as Miotens was also tested. Results showed that both apparatus were suitable to study thiocolchicoside penetration into human skin...

Thiocolchicoside, a semi-synthetic derivative of colchicoside, is used in topical formulations for its anti-inflammatory and muscle-relaxant properties. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of a (propylene glycol diperlagonate) DPPG and (propylene glycol) PG mixture present in an innovative foam formulation (Miotens) on the flux of thiocolchicoside through excised human skin. Furthermore, the in vitro permeation behaviour of this new formulation (Miotens foam) was compared to another commercial product (Muscoril ointment) and to a control gel formulation (thiogel), both enhancer free...

Thiocolchicoside (Miotens), a muscle relaxant agent, is frequently administered in association regimen with other drugs, such as anti-inflammatory drugs or vitamins. The aim of this study was to investigate the physicochemical compatibility between thiocolchicoside (Miotens) and other injectable drugs frequently used in association. Physicochemical properties of thiocolchicoside mixtures with different drugs, including colour, clarity, pH and drug content were observed or measured before and after (3 h) mixing at room temperature...
