Conventional drug administration suffers from several drawbacks, including a lack of specificity for diseased tissue, the necessity of large and frequent doses, and adverse side effects. Great effort is currently being devoted to developing nanoparticle-based therapeutics capable of prolonging drug administration and providing better control. Here we demonstrate the use of flexible microporous MIL-53(Fe) and mesoporous MIL-101 and SBA-15 as matrices for the adsorption and in vitro drug delivery… CONTINUE READING
