"The effect of tetradecylmaltoside (TDM) on nasal peptide drug absorption was assessed with four peptides of distinct molecular size: insulin (5.7 kDa), leptin (16 kDa), somatropin (22.1 kDa), and epoetin alfa (30.4 kDa). The nasal uptake of the smallest peptides, insulin and leptin, was significantly increased at a TDM concentration of only 0.06%. The uptake of somatropin was significantly increased when concentrations of 0.125% or more were used," researchers in the United States report.
"The uptake of the largest peptide, epoetin alfa, was not significantly increased, in the...
