ANALYSIS OF EXOSOMES AND MICROVESICLES VIA NANOPARTICLE TRACKING ANALYSIS

Microvesicles (MV) can be defined as a heterogeneous group of materials with distinct names: microparticles, ectosomes, exosomes, exosome like vesicles, shed vesicles or oncosomes, although all of them give a rough idea of the variety of biological sources. In recent years there has been an increasing interest in the research of submicrometer particles released to […]

HOW TO CHOOSE THE APPROPRIATE NANOVESICLE

The aim of this post is to explain how to choose the appropriate nanovesicle regarding its final application. Although nanovesicles have a lot of different applications, here we will discuss the most common: Intracellular delivery Controlled delivery In vitro assays In vivo assays Passive targeting Active targeting Gene delivery Diagnostics Theranostic Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals […]

PLGA nanoparticles

Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles for drug delivery   Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) is one of the most commonly used biodegradable synthetic polymer to generate biocompatible nanoparticles since it is a US FDA* and EMA**-approved platform to the delivery of drugs in humans. The biodegradability that are based on the hydrolysis of this polymer (see Figure 1)to […]
