Nanostructured cellulose materials: adsorption of antibiotics onto cellulose fibers functionalized with glycidylmethacrylate for the manufacturing of antibacterial fabrics

, , , , , , ,
Abstract: In this work we report how cotton fibers can be easily functionalized with glycidylmethacrylate (GMA) by means of the Fenton’s reaction and used for the manufacturing of biomedical textiles having significant capability to adsorb [...]

Supramolecular assemblies of cisplatin and polyelectrolytes: preparation, characterization and activity against cancer cells

, , , , , ,
Nanoformulation of cisplatin (Cis) is important to circumvent its high toxicity against normal cells. In this work, Cis cationic nanoparticles were prepared by the self-assembly of drug and oppositely charged polyelectrolytes (carboxymethylcellulose, CMC; chitosan, CH; [...]

In vitro anticancer activity of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) nanoparticles loaded with antitumor drug Paclitaxel

, , , , , , , , , , ,
We have produced nanoparticles loaded with antitumor drug paclitaxel. Operated nanospheres were prepared on the base of a biodegradable and biocompatible polymer of bacterial origin, poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB). PHB nanoparticles with paclitaxel (230±55 nm in diameter) [...]
