PLGA nanoparticles in the ocular drug delivery

PLGA nanoparticles in the ocular drug delivery The topical ocular administration of drugs has two different purposes: to treat superficial eye diseases, such as infections (e.g. conjunctivitis, blepharitis, keratitis sicca) and to provide intraocular treatment through the cornea for diseases such as glaucoma or uveitis.Compared with drug delivery to other parts of the body, ocular […]

PLGA in Tissue Engineering

    PLGA in Tissue Engineering The inability to deliver bioactive agents locally in a transient but sustained manner is one of the challenges on the development of bio-functionalized scaffolds for tissue engineering (TE) and regenerative medicine. The mode of release is especially relevant when the bioactive agent is a growth factor (GF), because the […]

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 […]


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 […]
