Alzheimer’s disease, in spite of being the sixth main cause of death in the US, has only five drug treatments approved, due to the failure of drug development for central nervous system (CNS) diseases in clinical trials. This is caused by the selective permeability of the blood-brain-barrier (BBB). The BBB plays a critical role in […]

Liposomes and PLGA nanoparticles as carriers for vaccines.

Liposome vaccine technology Several applications of liposomes have been reported in the delivery of vaccine antigens. Liposomes can be used as carriers for vaccine delivery where antigens can be encapsulated in the core, embedded in the bilayer and/or adsorbed or engrafted to the outer Surface. Although there are several formulations to obtain liposomes, cationic and […]

Extracellular vesicles isolation–Developing new devices

Extracellular vesicles isolation–Developing new devices One of the main technical challenges to studying EVs is to isolate them without interfering with their structure, in order to be able to reveal their functions and to use them as biomarkers. Moreover, the new area of therapeutically using EVs needs clinical grade methods of isolation. Although ultracentrifugation is […]


METAL NANOPARTICLES FOR SENSING (II): The role of metal nanoparticle surface in the development of SERS or SEF applications. As we mention in our previous post (GOLD NANOPARTICLE FOR SENSING (I)), the interaction between light and gold nanoparticle surface causes a collective oscillation of the electronic cloud of the metal leading also to the generation […]

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 […]
