This work describes the production and application of an aerosolised formulation of chitosan nanoparticles for improved pulmonary siRNA delivery and gene silencing in mice. Aerosolised chitosan/siRNA nanoparticles were pneumatically formed using a nebulising catheter and sized by laser diffraction. In vitro silencing of aerosolised and non-aerosolised formulations was evaluated in an EGFP endogenous-expressing H1299 cell line by flow cytometry. Non-invasive intratracheal insertion of the… CONTINUE READING
