This article presents the potential of PLGA nanoparticles for the oral administration of drugs. Different strategies are used to improve oral absorption of these nanoparticles. These strategies are based on modification of nanoparticle surface properties. They can be achieved either by coating the nanoparticle surface with stabilizing hydrophilic(More)
Nanoplatforms can optimize the efficacy and safety of chemotherapy, and thus cancer therapy. However, new approaches are encouraged in developing new nanomedicines against malignant cells. In this work, a reproducible methodology is described to prepare Δ(9)-tetrahidrocannabinol (Δ(9)-THC)-loaded poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) nanoparticles against(More)
This article aimed to produce, characterize and evaluate different surface-modified naphthalen-1-yl-(4-pentyloxynaphthalen-1-yl)methanone (CB13) loaded poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) nanoparticles in order to improve their oral absorption and in vivo biodistribution. Plain and surface-modified PLGA nanoparticles were successfully prepared using a(More)
CONTEXT Oral administration of insulin is severely limited by very low bioavailability. Biocompatible polymeric nanocarriers have been investigated to overcome this problem. Flow focusing (FF) has revolutionized current engineering of poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) based micromedicines. This technique has never been used to formulate insulin-loaded(More)
The objective of this work is to develop a nanoplatform that can potentiate the oral administration of Δ9-tetrahidrocannabinol, a highly lipophilic active agent with very promising antiproliferative and antiemetic activities. To that aim, colloidal carriers based on the biodegradable and biocompatible poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) were investigated. Such(More)
A simple, fast, and reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic (RP-HPLC) method has been developed and validated for determining of a cannabinoid derivate, which displays potent antihyperalgesic activity, 1-naphthalenyl[4-(pentyloxy)-1-naphthalenyl]methanone (CB13) into PLGA nanoparticles. Separation was achieved in a C18 column using a mobile(More)
