In vitro inhibition of fungal activity by macrophage-mediated sequestration and release of encapsulated amphotericin B nanosupension in red blood cells.

Abstract

The efficacy of antifungal treatment has been diminished by the biodistribution limitations of amphotericin B (AmB) due to its pharmacological profile, as well as the severe side effects it causes. A cellular drug-delivery system, which incorporates human erythrocytes (RBCs) loaded with an AmB nanosuspension (AmB-NS), is developed in order to improve… (More)
