Assessment of PEG on Polymeric Particles Surface, a Key Step in Drug Carrier Translation
Injectable drug nanocarriers have greatly benefited in their clinical development from the addition of a superficial hydrophilic corona to improve their cargo pharmacokinetics. The most studied and used polymer for this ...
Unified scaling of the structure and loading of nanoparticles formed via diffusion-limited coalescence
(American Chemical Society, 2018-04-30)
The present study establishes the scaling laws describing the structure of spherical nanoparticles formed by diffusion-limited coalescence. We produced drug-loaded nanoparticles from a poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(d,l-lactic ...
Drug-loaded nanocarriers : passive targeting and crossing of biological barriers
Poor bioavailability and poor pharmacokinetic characteristics are some of the leading causes of drug development failure. Therefore, poorly-soluble drugs, fragile proteins or nucleic acid products may benefit from their ...
Effect of polymer architecture on Curcumin 1 encapsulation and release from PEGylated polymer nanoparticles: toward a drug delivery nano-platform to the CNS
We developed a nanoparticles (NPs) library from poly(ethylene glycol)–poly lactic acid comb-like polymers with variable amount of PEG. Curcumin was encapsulated in the NPs with a view to develop a delivery platform to treat ...
Effect of Polymer Architecture on the Structural and Biophysical Properties of PEG-PLA Nanoparticles
Polymers made of poly(ethylene glycol) chains grafted to poly(lactic acid) chains (PEG-g-PLA) were used to produce stealth drug nanocarriers. A library of comb-like PEG-g-PLA polymers with different PEG grafting densities ...
Non-covalent formulation of active principles with dendrimers: current state-of-the-art and prospects for further development
During the last three decades, dendrimers, nano-sized highly-branched fractal-like symmetrical macromolecules, have been intensively studied as promising candidates for application as drug-delivery carriers. Among other ...
