New nanotransporter for drug delivery inside cells

A new study by the University of Barcelona has analized the viability of a new nanomolecule as drug delivery vehicle. The results, published in the journal Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, show that liposomes designed by researchers are able to transport and deliver an anticancer drug that has been used as a model inside the cells. The study included the participation of researchers from the UB faculties of Biology, Physics and Pharmacy and Food Sciences, as well as researchers from the Scientific and Technological Centers of the UB (CCiTUB), the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of the UB (IN2UB) and from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC).
