Polymeric nanoparticles for use in therapy
A research group from the Andalusian Public Health System has developed nanoparticles sustained release of active ingredients. The use of such nanoparticles in therapy, preferably for antitumor therapy, and the method of synthesis of these nanoparticles.
This new system for transporting biologically active molecules, is capable of being targeted to receptors or targets selectively,and in particular to the functionalization of nanoparticles of poly (butyl cyanoacrylate) (PBCA) or poly (ɛ-caprolactone) (PCL) that transporting a drug, preferably 5-fluorouracil.
