The purpose of this work was the development of a multicompartimental nanocarrier for the simultaneous encapsulation of paclitaxel (PTX) and genistein (GEN), associating antiangiogenic and cytotoxic properties in order to potentiate antitumoral activity. Polymeric nanocapsules containing PTX were obtained by interfacial deposition of preformed polymer and(More)
In this work we have developed and implement a new approach for the study of magnetoliposomes using Monte Carlo simulations. Our model is based on interaction among nanoparticles considering magnetic dipolar, van der Waals, ionic-steric, and Zeeman interaction potentials. The ionic interaction between nanoparticles and the lipid bilayer is represented by an(More)
Nanostructured drug delivery systems are based on biocompatible and biodegradable components. Composition, size and membrane surface properties are characteristics that may influence cell viability in cytotoxicity assays. In this work, four nanostructured systems commonly used for drug delivery were prepared and cytotoxicity was evaluated on human(More)
Liposomes containing 4-nerolidylcatechol (4-NC), the major metabolite isolated from Pothomorphe umbellata, were obtained and characterized. Influence of liposomal encapsulation on chemical stability of 4-NC and on cytotoxicity profile of this drug was evaluated. Soybean phosphatidylcholine liposomes were prepared by lipid film hydration followed by(More)
