In the last past dozen years, polymersomes (Ps) have attracted tremendous attention as versatile carriers because of their colloidal stability, tunable membrane properties and ability in encapsulating or integrating a broad range of drugs and molecules. Relatively long blood circulation times of Ps can be accomplished when block copolymers with a poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) are used for the formation of Ps. A number of Ps has been developed for new possibilities and applications in drug… CONTINUE READING
