The tissue distribution of ampicillin entrapped in liposomes was studied in normal noninfected mice and showed that ampicillin concentrated mostly in the liver and spleen. Liposomate ampicillin was significantly more effective than free ampicillin in reducing splenic and hepatic bacterial counts in C57BL/Ka nude mice chronically infected with Listeria(More)
PURPOSE The goal of the present paper was to investigate the role of a surfactant, Tween 20, in the modulation of the entrapment and release of beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) from poly (DL-lactide-co-glycolide) microspheres. METHODS Poly(DL-lactide-co-glycolide) microspheres containing BLG were prepared by a water-in-oil-in-water emulsion solvent procedure.(More)
The goal of the present paper was to optimize the encapsulation of beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) within poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microparticles prepared by the multiple emulsion solvent evaporation method. The role of the pH of the external phase and the introduction of the surfactant Tween 20, in the modulation of the entrapment and release of BLG from(More)
In this paper, we report the physico-chemical properties of negatively charged liposomes and of polyisohexylcyanoacrylate nanoparticles loaded with ampicillin. Although the carriers were of the same size (200 nm), drug-loading capacity was 20 times higher for nanoparticles than for liposomes. After freeze-drying or storage at +4 degrees C, no drug escaped(More)
The milk model protein, beta lactoglobulin (BLG), was encapsulated into microspheres prepared by a multiple emulsion/solvent evaporation method. The effect of the pH of the outer aqueous phase on protein encapsulation and release as well as on microsphere morphology has been investigated. At all tested pH values, the encapsulation efficiency was shown to(More)
We are interested in recurrent disaster forecasts; these are events such as annual cyclones in the Caribbean, earthquakes along the Ring of Fire and so on. These crises, even small-or medium-sized, are, in fact, critical for the emergency response of humanitarian organizations inasmuch as the sum of casualties and losses attained are as deadly as those that(More)
