Nanoscience improves drug delivery systems

Abstract:
An international team of scientists has designed a new peptide with lipid nanostructures which could be used to create novel drug delivery systems.

Their findings not only help experts to understand the basic science of how lipid-like peptides interact with lipid molecules, but also may provide new strategies for the encapsulation and the delivery of biological active materials.

Researchers from the Institute of Biophysics and Nanosystems Research (IBN), Austrian Academy of Sciences and of Centre for Biomedical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) detailed in a new study their findings on the impact of integrating short surfactant-like designer peptides in lipidic nanostructures.
