Reduction Of Absorptiontime

This can be achieved by making a soluble salt of the drug which is rapidly absorbed from the site of administration. In the case of s.c. or i.m. injections the same objective may be obtained with hyaluronidase, an enzyme which deploymerises hyaluronic acid, a constituent of connective tissue that prevents the spread of foreign substances, e.g. bacteria, drugs. Hyaluronidase combined with an i.m. injection e.g. a local anaesthetic, or a subcutaneous infusion, leads to increased permeation with more rapid absorption. Hyaluronidase can also be used to promote resorption of tissue accumulation of blood and fluid.
