Star-shaped co-polymers based on the backbone of poly(ε-caprolactone) were synthesized by a ring-opening reaction using pentaerythritol as initiator and Sn(Oct)(2) as catalyst. The star-shaped poly(ε-caprolactone) polymer was then chain extended with a terminal block of poly(ethyl ethylene phosphate) to form a copolymer, poly(ε-caprolactone)-poly(ethyl(More)
Recent cases of avian influenza H7N9 have caused great concerns that virus may become transmittable between humans. It is imperative to develop an effective vaccine to fight against the pandemic potential of this H7N9 influenza virus to protect human from the disease. This study aims to investigate an optimized formulation for the development of H7N9(More)
The amphiphilic block copolymer methoxy-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (mPEG-PCL) was grafted to 2-hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) to produce nano-sized micellar nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were loaded with anti-tumor drug, doxorubicin (DOX) and the size of the DOX-loaded nanoparticles were determined by dynamic light scattering (DLS) in(More)
Epidemics and outbreaks caused by infections of several subgenotypes of EV71 and other serotypes of coxsackie A viruses have raised serious public health concerns in the Asia-Pacific region. These concerns highlight the urgent need to develop a scalable manufacturing platform for producing an effective and sufficient quantity of vaccines against deadly(More)
