Studies from Huazhong Agricultural University in the Area of Nanoparticles Reported (Biodegradable nanoparticles for intracellular delivery of antimicrobial agents)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Drug Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Nanoparticles. According to news reporting out of Hubei, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Biodegradable nanoparticles have emerged as a promising strategy for ferrying antimicrobial agents into specific cells due to their unique properties. This review discusses the current progress and challenges of biodegradable nanoparticles for intracellular antimicrobial delivery to understand design principles for the development of ideal nanocarriers."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Huazhong Agricultural University, "The intracellular delivery performances of biodegradable nanoparticles for diverse antimicrobial agents are first summarized. Second, the cellular internalization and intracellular trafficking, degradation and release kinetics of nanoparticles as well as their relation with intracellular delivery of encapsulated antimicrobial agents are provided. Third, the influences of nanoparticle properties on the cellular internalization and intracellular fate of nanoparticles and their payload antimicrobial agents are discussed. Finally, the challenges and perspectives of nanoparticles for intracellular delivery of antimicrobial agents are addressed."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The review will be helpful to the scientists who are interested in searching for more efficient nanosystem strategies for intracellular delivery of antimicrobial agents."
