Pharma Boosts Pill Power With Nanoparticles

Abstract:
Researchers are busily ferreting out new agents that make drugs more effective. And when a drug works better, less of it is needed. But as more of these drug boosting agents – known as adjuvants – are put to use, a thorny medical problem has appeared. BioSante Pharmaceuticals thinks its calcium phosphate nanoparticles might be able to clear the way. BioSante researchers say a specially formulated calcium phosphate, or CaP, can deliver treatment without the allergic reaction often associated with the aluminum salt derivatives in adjuvants.
