Nanoparticulate Drug Delivery Systems Based on Hydrotropic Polymers, Dendrimers, and Polymer Complexes

, , , , , , , , , , ,
Novel nanoparticulate drug delivery systems have received increasing attention for delivery of poorly water-soluble drugs and proteins. We have developed a new type of polymer micelles bearing the hydrotropic core segment, e.g., poly(2-(4-vinylbenzyloxy)-N,N-diethylnicotinamide), that enables [...]

Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles for Multiple Biomedical Applications

, , , , , , , , ,
Superparamagneticiron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) were mixed at various ratios with different polymer solutions to obtain SPION coated with PVA modified by functional groups (amino-SPION, carboxy-SPION, and thiol-SPION). Studying human melanoma cells by theses different functionalized [...]

Protein Nanoparticles

, ,
Protein nanoparticles can be utilized for the pulmonary delivery of protein therapeutics or can be incorporated into biodegradable polymer microspheres/nanospheres for controlled release depot or oral delivery. With proteinaceous therapeutics, the generation of nanoparticles is [...]
