The mechanisms of pinacidil-induced direct vasodilation were studied in vitro in RMA and RAO. In RMA, pinacidil produced dose-dependent relaxations of norepinephrine (5 microM)-induced contractions with an IC50 of 0.2 microM. This component of pinacidil relaxation appeared to be dependent on K+ conductance because pretreatment with tetraethylammonium (10(More)
It is hypothesized that thiolated chitosan (TCS) core/shell nanofibers (NFs) can enhance the drug loading of tenofovir, a model low molecular weight and highly water-soluble drug molecule, and improve its mucoadhesivity and in vivo safety. To test this hypothesis, poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) core with TCS and polylactic acid (PLA) shell NFs are fabricated by(More)
It is hypothesized that novel thiolated chitosan-coated multilayer microparticles (MPs) with enhanced drug loading are more mucoadhesive than uncoated MPs and safe in vivo for vaginal delivery of topical anti-HIV microbicide. Formulation optimization is achieved through a custom experimental design and the alginate (AG) MPs cores are prepared using the(More)
The purpose of this study was to engineer a model anti-HIV microbicide (tenofovir) drug delivery system targeting HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein gp120 (HIV-1 g120) for the prevention of HIV sexual transmission. HIV-1 g120 and mannose responsive particles (MRP) were prepared through the layer-by-layer coating of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) with concanavalin A(More)
The dialysis method is classically used for drug separation before analysis, but does not provide direct and real-time drug quantification and has limitations affecting the dialysis rate. In this study, a phosphorus nuclear magnetic resonance (31P-qNMR) method is developed for the real-time quantification of therapeutic molecules in vitro. The release(More)
