Nanoparticles prepared by desolvation and subsequent crosslinking of human serum albumin (HSA) represent promising carriers for drug delivery. Particle size is a crucial parameter, in particular for the in vivo behaviour of nanoparticles after intravenous injection. The objective of the present study is the development of a desolvation procedure for the(More)
In order to identify cellular genes which interfere with HIV-1 replication in monocyte-derived macrophages (MAC), cells were stimulated with interferon (IFN) or lipopolysaccharide (LPS) leading to a pronounced inhibition of HIV-1 infection in these cells, and the resulting gene expression was analyzed. Using the microarray technology we identified a gene(More)
Established methods of protein chemistry can be used for the effective attachment of drug targeting ligands to the surface of protein-based nanoparticles. In the present work gelatin nanoparticles were used for the attachment of biotinylated anti-CD3 antibodies by avidin-biotin-complex formation. These antibody modified nanoparticles represent a promising(More)
Protamine-oligonucleotide nanoparticles represent effective colloidal drug carriers for antisense phosphorothioate oligonucleotides (PTO). This study describes improvements in particle preparation and the physicochemical properties of the complexes prepared. The influence of component concentrations, length of the PTO chain and the PTO/protamine weight(More)
In the present study, surface-modified nanoparticles based on biodegradable material were used for antibody coupling in order to get a selective drug carrier systems. Gelatin nanoparticles were prepared by a desolvation process. Sulfhydryl groups were introduced which enabled the linkage of NeutrAvidin (NAv). Antibodies specific for the CD3 antigen on(More)
Membrane transport of antisense oligonucleotides (ODN) is an inefficient process which requires special carriers for their intracellular delivery. We have developed a delivery system for AS-ODN and their phosphorothioate analogues (AS-PTO) directed against human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) tat mRNA for efficient transfection of HIV-1 target cells.(More)
