By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Gene Therapy Weekly -- Investigators discuss new findings in Supramolecular Research. According to news reporting from Chongqing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The excellent biocompatibility and unique inclusion capability as well as powerful functionalization capacity of cyclodextrins and their derivatives make them especially attractive for engineering novel functional materials for biomedical applications. There has been increasing interest recently to fabricate supramolecular systems for drug and gene delivery based on cyclodextrin materials."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Third Military Medical University, "This review focuses on state of the art and recent advances in the construction of cyclodextrin-based assemblies and their applications for controlled drug delivery. First, we introduce cyclodextrin materials utilized for self-assembly. The fabrication technologies of supramolecular systems including nanoplatforms and hydrogels as well as their applications in nanomedicine and pharmaceutical sciences are then highlighted."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "At the end, the future directions of this field are discussed."
