Despite recent advances in treatment, multiple myeloma (MM) remains an incurable malignancy. By using in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo approaches, we have identified here that lipid rafts constitute a new target in MM. We have found that the phospholipid ether edelfosine targets and accumulates in MM cell membrane rafts, inducing apoptosis through(More)
The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of the cross-linkage of poly(methylvinylether-co-maleic anhydride) (PVM/MA) nanoparticles with increasing amounts of 1,3-diaminopropane (DP) and, eventually, bovine serum albumin (BSA) on their gastrointestinal transit and bioadhesive properties. The fluorescently-labelled formulations were orally(More)
The aim of this work was to study the oral bioavailability in rats of paclitaxel (PTX) when encapsulated as a complex with cyclodextrins in poly(anhydride) nanoparticles (NP). For this purpose three different cyclodextrins were selected: beta-cyclodextrin (CD), 2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HPCD) and 6-monodeoxy-6-monoamino-beta-cyclodextrin (NHCD). A(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this work was to develop and validate an HPLC method for gentamicin quantification in different types of biological samples such as animal tissues and cellular material and also in pharmaceuticals. METHODS Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) microparticles (MP) of gentamicin (PLGA 502H MP), THP-1 cells, and plasma and tissue samples of mice(More)
A simple, rapid and sensitive reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for the measurement of doxycycline concentrations in both drug delivery systems (DDS) and serum extracted from mice after intraperitoneal (free drug) and intravenous (doxycycline administered in DDS) administration, has been developed. For the analysis of(More)
The aim of the work was to develop biodegradable microspheres for controlled delivery of the somatostatin analogue vapreotide and maintenance of sustained plasma levels over 2-4 weeks after a single injection in rats. Vapreotide was microencapsulated into end-group capped and uncapped low molecular weight poly(lactide) (PLA) and poly(lactide-co-glycolide)(More)
Purpose. The aim of this work was to evaluate the bioadhesive properties of non-hardened gliadin nanoparticles (NPs) and cross-linked gliadin nanoparticles (CL-NP) in the carbazole pharmacokinetic parameters obtained after the oral administration of these carriers. Methods. A deconvolution model was used to estimate the carbazole absorption when loaded in(More)
Drug delivery systems containing gentamicin were studied as a treatment against experimental brucellosis in mice. Micro- and nanoparticles prepared by using poly(D,L-lactide-coglycolide) (PLGA) 502H and microparticles made of PLGA 75:25H were successfully delivered to the liver and the spleen, the target organs for Brucella melitensis. Both polymers have(More)
A rapid and simple HPLC method with evaporative scattering detection (ELSD) has been developed for the separation and quantitation of beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD), 2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (2-HP-beta-CD) and poly(methyl vinyl ether-co-maleic anhydride) (Gantrez). Separation was carried out on a Zorbax Eclipse XDB-Phenyl narrow bore column, with(More)
The aim of this work was to design mannosylated Gantrez AN nanoparticles (M-NP) and to describe their gut bioadhesive properties in order to develop a promising carrier for future applications in oral drug delivery. For that purpose, the process of the nanoparticles coating with mannosamine was optimized by the incubation of Gantrez AN nanoparticles with(More)
