A comparative study of single-needle and coaxial electrospun amyloid-like protein nanofibers to investigate hydrophilic drug release behavior.

In this study, nanofibers containing an amyloid-like bovine serum albumin (AL-BSA) carrier and a model drug (ampicillin) were produced by electrospinning. The release behavior of ampicillin was compared from electrospun nanofibers prepared as either coaxial or single-needle types. SEM images showed that the membranes had a uniform and smooth structure and… CONTINUE READING
