Functionalized nanoparticles provide early cardioprotection after acute myocardial infarction.


Recent developments in nanotechnology have created considerable potential toward diagnosis and cancer therapy. In contrast, the use of nanotechnology in tissue repair or regeneration remains largely unexplored. We hypothesized that intramyocardial injection of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1-complexed poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) nanoparticles… (More)
