In order to achieve efficient siRNA delivery to the brain, we designed a novel polyion complex (PIC) micelles composed of rabies virus glycoprotein (RVG) peptide tagged PEGylated polyasparthydrazide (PAHy) derivatives. The synthesized derivatives were characterized using (1)H NMR. The PIC micelles were formed by electrostatic attraction between the polymer(More)
In this work, a peptide derived from the rabies virus glycoprotein (RVG) was linked to siRNA/trimethylated chitosan (TMC) complexes through bifunctional PEG for efficient brain-targeted delivery of siRNA. The physiochemical properties of the complexes, such as siRNA complexing ability, size and ζ potential, morphology, serum stability, and cytotoxicity,(More)
Decitabine (5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine, DAC) is a novel DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitor for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome, acute and chronic myeloid leukemia. However, it exhibits a low oral bioavailability (only 9% in mice), because of low permeability across the intestine membrane and rapid metabolism to inactive metabolite. To utilize the(More)
The purposes of the present work were to explore the potential application of 3D face-centered cubic mesoporous silica (FMS) with pore size of 16.0nm as a delivery system for poorly soluble drugs and investigate the effect of pore size on the dissolution rate. FMS with different pore sizes (16.0, 6.9 and 3.7nm) was successfully synthesized by using Pluronic(More)
A new oral sustained drug delivery system (DDS) involving a combination of inorganic mesoporous material (CMK-5) and organic polymer poly dimethyl diallyl ammonium (PDDA) was established to determine its general suitability for use with poorly water soluble drugs. Nimodipine, carvedilol and fenofibrate, three different drugs with acidic or alkaline(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is known to be a great obstruction to successful chemotherapy, and considerable efforts have been devoted to reverse MDR including designing various functional drug delivery systems. In this study, hybrid lipid-capped mesoporous silica nanoparticles (LTMSNs), aimed toward achieving stimuli-responsive drug release to circumvent(More)
To prepare stable polyion complex (PIC) micelles, polyasparthydrazide (PAHy) modified with glycidyltrimethylammonium groups and methoxy poly(ethylene glycol) (mPEG) (mPEG-g-PAHy-GTA) was synthesized. The cytotoxicity of the polymer was evaluated by the methyl tetrazolium assay. The polymer entrapped the diammonium glycyrrhizinate (DG) and formed polyion(More)
A redox-responsive delivery system based on colloidal mesoporous silica (CMS) has been developed, in which 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) was conjugated to vehicles by cleavable disulfide bonds. The oligosaccharide of hyaluronic acid (oHA) was modified on the surface of CMS by disulfide bonds as a targeting ligand and was able to increase the stability and(More)
BACKGROUND Organic porous material is a promising carrier for enhancing the dissolution of poorly water soluble drug. The aim of the present study was to enhance dissolution and oral bioavailability of lovastatin (LV) by preparing a porous starch microsphere foam (PSM) using a novel method, meanwhile, looking into the mechanism of improving dissolution of(More)
3-D ordered macroporous carbon with different polymer coatings were developed as new oral vaccine immunological systems. Poly dimethyl diallyl ammonium (PDDA), polyethyleneimine (PEI) and chitosan (CTS), three different polymers with electropositive or adsorption-promoting properties, were chosen as the coating materials to endow the vaccine delivery(More)
