Decrease of Antimicrobial Resistance through Polyelectrolyte-Coated Nanoliposomes Loaded with β-Lactam Drug
This study evaluated the antibiotic activity of a model drug encapsulated within coated-nanoliposomes on strains of Staphylococcus aureus with different antibiotic-resistance degrees to show changes in size, polydispersity, zeta potential, and encapsulation efficiency.
Cyclodextrin modified niosomes to encapsulate hydrophilic compounds
UV-visible spectrophotometry and induced circular dichroism analysis allowed it to be established that MO is complexed with cyclodextrins inside vesicles, whereas MY interacts mainly with the niosome bilayer instead of with CD.
Development of Antioxidant-Loaded Nanoliposomes Employing Lecithins with Different Purity Grades
This work focused on comparing the ability of lecithins with two purity grades regarding their performance in the development of nanoliposomes, as well as their ability to contain and release polar
