Abstract

Background

The purpose of this study was to investigate lecithin-chitosan nanoparticles as a topical delivery system for quercetin.

Methods

Tocopheryl propylene glycol succinate was chosen to be the surfactant for the nanosystem. The mean particle size of the nanoparticles was 95.3 nm, and th

Abstract

Introduction

We have evaluated the use of silica–dopamine reservoirs synthesized by the sol–gel approach with the aim of using them in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, specifically as a device for the controlled release of dopamine in the striatum. Theoretical calculations illustrate that dop

Abstract

Compared with traditional in-vitro cell culture materials, three-dimensional nanofibrous scaffolds provide a superior environment for promoting cell functions. Since nanofibrous scaffolds have nanometer pore sizes, cells are unable to penetrate on their own, so must be incorporated into the scaff

Abstract

Background

Polyamidoamine (PAMAM) and polypropylenimine (PPI) dendrimers are the commercially available and most widely used dendrimers in pharmaceutical sciences and biomedical engineering. In the present study, the loading and release behaviors of generation 3 PAMAM and generation 4 PPI dendrime

Abstract

Carbon nanotubes act as a photon antenna that serves as an effective “molecular heater” around the near-infrared (NIR) region. This exothermic generation can be used as a possible heating source for hyperthermia therapy. The current study reports the dispersible and exothermic properties with NIR
