New Findings on Drug Delivery Systems Discussed by Researchers at University Putra Malaysia (In vitro sustained release study of gallic acid coated with magnetite-PEG and magnetite-PVA for drug delivery system)
Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from University Putra Malaysia, "Thermogravimetric analyses proved that after coating the thermal stability was markedly enhanced. Magnetic measurements and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) revealed that superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles could be successfully coated with two polymers (PEG and PVA) and gallic acid as an active drug. Release behavior of gallic acid from two nanocomposites showed that FPEGG and FPVAG nanocomposites were found to be sustained and governed by pseudo-second-order kinetics."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Anticancer activity of the two nanocomposites shows that the FPEGG demonstrated higher anticancer effect on the breast cancer cell lines in almost all concentrations tested compared to FPVAG."
