Dendrimers for Drug Delivery

We have developed a PEGylated structures as a new class of platforms for drug delivery. To evaluate whether this PEGylated platform could be useful for the conjugation of bioactive compounds.

 

 
   
     
 
 
 
 
 
           
 

Gold Nanoparticles (GNPs)

GNPs are able to be functionalized at the same time with both a drug peptide ligand (cargo)and a targeting peptide, which improves the capacity to enter into the cancer cells carrying the antitumor peptide and thus increasing its local concentration, is enhancing the antitumor activity.
