We designed a novel type of arginine-rich dendrimer, with a structure based on the well-defined dendrimer, polyamidoamine dendrimer (PAMAM). Further characterization was performed to prove that the polymer is a potent nonviral gene delivery carrier. The primary amines located on the surface of PAMAM were conjugated with L-arginine to generate an(More)
Polyethylenimine (PEI) shows high transfection efficiency and cytoxicity due to its high amine density. The new disulfide cationic polymer, linear poly(ethylenimine sulfide) (l-PEIS), was synthesized for efficient and safe gene delivery. As the amine density of l-PEIS increased, the transfection efficiency also increased. l-PEIS-6 and l-PEIS-8 show(More)
Poly(ethylene oxide sulfide) (PEOS), polymers consisting of an internal ethylene oxide oligomer and disulfide linkage, were synthesized and characterized. The degree of polymerization was dependent upon temperature, dimethyl sulfoxide condition, and monomer hydrophobicity. The stability of PEOS was measured by the size exclusion chromatography method after(More)
An oil-in-water solvent evaporation method was used to prepare cyclosporin A (CyA)-loaded particles varying in size (nanoparticles, 'small-sized' microparticles, 'large-sized' microparticles), polymer compositions [poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) 50/50, PLGA 85/15, poly(D,L-lactic acid) (PLA)] and additive fatty acid ester (ethyl myristate; EM).(More)
PEG-conjugated immunodominant peptides for collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) were prepared for oral tolerance induction instead of whole Type II collagen (CII), because a small peptide can be converted to a macromolecule soluble in methylene chloride by the coupling of poly-ethylene glycol (PEG). PEG-pep1 was synthesized from a peptide and mPEG-NH2 (Mw(More)
