The same authors also demonstrated similar results in healthy volunteers in their previously published study in the May 2012 issue of the same journal titled “ABH Gel is not Absorbed From the Skin of Normal Volunteers,” which found that ABH gel is not absorbed well topically. In that study, lorazepam and Haldol ® were almost undetectable in the blood samples of healthy study subjects; in other words, the plasma samples indicated that ABH gel was clinically or therapeutically insignificant. Therefore, ABH gel in its current formulation should not be used in patients with cancer.
