Development of a new drug carrier made from alginate.

Abstract

A new approach for the preparation of nanoparticles is presented. The method is based on control of the gelification phenomenon of alginate by calcium ions, and it leads to small particles of a wide range of very well-defined sizes (250-850 nm) depending on the alignate concentration. The particles are formed in a sodium alginate solution by addition of… (More)
