Drug delivery using biodegradable nanoparticles

Nanobotmodels presents a new drug delivery illustration. Nanoparticles, products of nanotechnology, are of increasing interest to the pharmaceutical community. They can increase drug solubility, enhance bioavailability, allow tissue targeting, offer decreased side-effects, and improve therapeutic efficacy.

Presenting the most pertinent and practical issues in the manufacturing and biological application of nanoparticles, this source presents state-of-the-art scientific contributions by seasoned authorities in the field.

Many medications such as peptide and protein, antibody, vaccine and gene based drugs, in general may not be delivered using these routes because they might be susceptible to enzymatic degradation or can not be absorbed into the systemic circulation efficiently due to molecular size and charge issues to be therapeutically effective. For this reason many protein and peptide drugs have to be delivered by injection. For example, many immunizations are based on the delivery of protein drugs and are often done by injection.

Targeted drug delivery is a method of delivering medication to a patient in a manner that increases the concentration of the medication in some parts of the body relative to others.

When a cell membrane recognizes a foreign object such as a nanoparticle, it normally wraps around or “eats” it, encasing the object in a smaller bubble inside the cell that can eventually be excreted. Any drugs or other agents attached to the nanoparticle therefore never reach the main fluid section of the cell, or cytosol, where they could have an effect.

Nanobotmodels Company provides illustration of drug delivery process including various types of nanoparticles. Our goal – make realistic vision of modern drug delivery technology.
