Rabies virus-inspired silica-coated gold nanorods are fabricated by mimicking size, shape, surface glycoprotein property and in vivo behavior of the rabies virus. These nanorods not only resemble the appearance of the actual rabies virus but also travel into the brain through the neuronal pathway bypassing the blood-brain barrier, and moreover respond to(More)
Tacrolimus (Tac) is an immunosuppressant that inhibits translocation of nuclear factor of activated T cells and has therapeutic potential for pulmonary fibrosis. Here, we investigated the therapeutic efficacy of a sustained-release type inhaled Tac formulation for treating bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis. Inhalation has many meaningful advantages over(More)
Albumin has gained considerable interest as a material for fabricating nanoparticulate systems due to its biomedical advantages, such as biocompatibility and chemical functionality. Here, we report a new pH-sensitive albumin nanocomplex prototype with a zinc-imidazole coordination bond. Albumin was conjugated with 1-(3-aminopropyl)imidazole and(More)
Pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic lung disease characterized by inflammation and collagen deposition, with an estimated mortality rate exceeding 70%. Here, we evaluated the therapeutic effectiveness of inhaled tacrolimus-loaded chitosan-coated poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) nanoparticles (chitosan TAC PLGA-NPs) in a bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis mouse(More)
