Pollen to deliver drugs

Abstract:
Pollen capsules that can be filled with nanomaterials could be used for drug delivery, say scientists.

Some plant pollens can cross the gut wall where they are destroyed within the blood stream, releasing their contents. This has led researchers to investigate pollen as possible drug delivery vehicles.
