PLGA nanoparticles were prepared via a modified W/O/W emulsion solvent diffusion process, in which all formulation components were fully biocompatible and biodegradable. Different independent processing parameters were systematically studied. Nanoparticles were characterized by DLS (particle size, polydispersity, zeta-potential) and TEM/AFM (surface… (More)
A double emulsion-solvent diffusion approach with fully biocompatible materials was used to encapsulate copper complexes within biodegradable nanoparticles, for which the release kinetics profiles have highlighted their potential use for a prolonged circulating administration.
The incorporation of a lipophilic Gd chelate (GdDO3A-C12) in biocompatible PLGA poly(D, L-lactide-co-glycolide) nanoparticles was explored as an approach to increase the relaxivity of contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging. By nanoprecipitation, it was possible to obtain PEGylated gadolinium nanoparticles (mean diameter of 155 nm) with high Gd… (More)
Curcumin, a neuroprotective agent with promising therapeutic approach has poor brain bioavailability. Herein, we demonstrate that curcumin-encapsulated poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) 50:50 nanoparticles (NPs-Cur 50:50) are able to prevent the phosphorylation of Akt and Tau proteins in SK-N-SH cells induced by H2O2 and display higher anti-inflammatory and… (More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the stability of diazoxide in extemporaneously compounded oral suspensions. Oral suspensions of diazoxide 10 mg/mL were prepared from either bulk drug or capsules dispersed in either Oral Mix or Oral Mix Sugar Free. These suspensions were stored at 5°C and 25°C/60%RH in bottles and oral syringes for a total of 90… (More)
BACKGROUND Wild-type RD114 virus is capable of generating syncytia during its replication, and it is believed that cell-free viruses direct the fusion of neighboring cells. The RD114 envelope (Env) that mediates this fusion event is now widely used to pseudotype retroviral and lentiviral vectors in gene therapy. Indeed, vectors pseudotyped with RD114 Env… (More)
This study reports the stability of extemporaneously prepared gabapentin oral suspensions prepared at 100 mg/mL from bulk drug and capsules in either Oral Mix or Oral Mix SF suspending vehicles. Suspensions were packaged in amber plastic bottles and amber plastic syringes at 25°C / 60%RH for up to 90 days. Throughout the study period, the following tests… (More)
