Biodegradable poly(D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) was chemically conjugated to lysozyme, a model protein drug, by coupling a terminal carboxylic acid in PLGA with primary amine groups present in lysozyme. The conjugation was carried out in dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO) by using carbodiimide as a...
Previous methods of microencapsulation are unable to process particles smaller than 100 mum without organic solvents or the use of multistep processes. The present study investigates the feasiblity of a one-step spray-drying process to microencapsulate erythromycin and clarithromycin, antibiotics...
Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is based on the nuclear reaction that occurs when the stable isotope, Boron-10, is irradiated with low-energy thermal neutrons to yield ionizing Helium and Lithium ions that are highly damaging and usually lethal to cells. The successful treatment of cancer by...
