SUMMARY Curcumin nanoparticles (Cur-NPs), with a mean diameter of 30 nm, containing different surface charges were prepared by employing different polymer coatings. Positively charged Cur-NPs demonstrated a higher efficacy to attenuate both inflammation and oxidation caused by lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced macrophage cell line (NR 8383) compared to negatively charged and neutral particles. INTRODUCTION Respiratory diseases, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), are… Expand
