Recent developments in multi-functional nanoparticles offer a great potential for targeted delivery of therapeutic compounds and imaging contrast agents to specific cell types, in turn, enhancing therapeutic effect and minimizing side effects. Despite the promise, site specific delivery carriers have not been translated into clinical reality. In this study,(More)
The sustained delivery of proteins from bio-compatible polymers has attracted remarkable interest (1–4). However, the necessary encapsulation of proteins in hydrophobic polymer microspheres remains challenging when using proteins in aqueous solutions (4). For example, when proteins are encapsulated in biocompatible poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA)(More)
