The use of polymeric nanocarriers to transport active compounds like small-molecular drugs, peptides, or genes found an increased attention throughout the different fields of natural sciences. Not only that these nanocarriers enhance the properties of already existing drugs in terms of solubility, bioavailability, and prolonged circulation times,(More)
We present a rapid synthetic method for the development of hyperbranched PEIs decorated with different oligosaccharide architectures as carrier systems (CS) for drugs and bioactive molecules for in vitro and in vivo experiments. Reductive amination of hyperbranched PEI with readily available oligosaccharides results in sugar functionalized PEI cores with(More)
Stimuli-responsive polymer architectures are molecular systems which evolve with an external signal. The observed changes are mainly decomposition, isomerization, polymerization, activation, supramolecular aggregation, and structural modifications of these molecules. The external stimuli, which can be combined in order to provoke these molecular changes,(More)
Traumatic wounds and congenital defects that require large-scale bone tissue repair have few successful clinical therapies, particularly for craniomaxillofacial defects. Although bioactive materials have demonstrated alternative approaches to tissue repair, an optimized materials system for reproducible, safe, and targeted repair remains elusive. We(More)
The application of nanotechnology in medicine and pharmaceuticals is a rapidly advancing field that is quickly gaining acceptance and recognition as an independent area of research called "nanomedicine". Urgent needs in this field, however, are biocompatible and bioactive materials for antifouling surfaces and nanoparticles for drug delivery. Therefore,(More)
The functional success of a biomedical implant critically depends on its stable bonding with the host tissue. Aseptic implant loosening accounts for more than half of all joint replacement failures. Various materials, including metals and plastic, confer mechanical integrity to the device, but often these materials are not suitable for direct integration(More)
Here we present the efficiency and versatility of newly developed core-multishell nanoparticles (CMS NPs), to encapsulate and transport the antitumor drugs doxorubicin hydrochloride (Dox), methotrexate (Mtx) and sodium ibandronate (Ibn) as well as dye molecules, i.e., a tetrasulfonated indotricarbocyanine (ITCC) and nile red. Structurally, the CMS NPs are(More)
Translation of micelles from the laboratory to the clinic is limited by a poor understanding of their in vivo fate following administration. In this paper, we establish a robust approach to real-time monitoring of the in vivo stability of micelles using Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET). This characterization method allows for exquisite insight into(More)
OBJECTIVE Avidin exhibits ideal characteristics for targeted intra-cartilage drug delivery: its small size and optimal positive charge enable rapid penetration through full-thickness cartilage and electrostatic binding interactions that give long half-lives in vivo. Here we conjugated Avidin with dexamethasone (DEX) and tested the hypothesis that(More)
Standard cell proliferation assays use bulk media drug concentration to ascertain the potency of chemotherapeutic drugs; however, the relevant quantity is clearly the amount of drug actually taken up by the cell. To address this discrepancy, we have developed a flow cytometric clonogenic assay to correlate the amount of drug in a single cell with the cell's(More)
