Instead, he reviewed four ways that ingredients could penetrate beyond the outer layer of the skin: sweat glands, hair follicles, and intercellular and transcellular methods.
Most of the work on human and mouse (or murine) CF in the late 1990s suggested that the loss of CFTR elevated the salt concentration in CF airway surface liquid and in sweat by related mechanisms, with the elevated sodium chloride concentration due to a block in transcellular chloride movement.
