Drug delivery to the brain using surfactant-coated poly(lactide-co-glycolide) nanoparticles: influence of the formulation parameters.


Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) nanoparticles coated with poloxamer 188 (Pluronic((R)) F-68) or polysorbate 80 (Tween((R)) 80) enable an efficient brain delivery of the drugs after intravenous injection. This ability was evidenced by two different pharmacological test systems employing as model drugs the anti-tumour antibiotic doxorubicin and the agonist… (More)
