    Purpose: To develop a novel brain drug delivery system based on self-assembled poly(ethyleneglycol)-poly (D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PEG-PLGA) polymersomes conjugated with lactoferrin (Lf-POS). The brain delivery properties of Lf-POS were investigated and optimized. Method: Three formulations...

    Summary. The cochlear nerve of adult Lewis rats was following microsurgical exposure in the cerebellopontine angle (CPA). The lesions completely interrupted the auditory nerve axons at the lesion site producing ipsilateral deafness in all animals. The rats were then treated with a recombinant...

    In dilute aqueous solutions certain amphiphilic block copolymers self-assemble into vesicles that enclose a small pool of water with a membrane. Such polymersomes have promising applications ranging from targeted drug-delivery devices, to biosensors, and nanoreactors. Interactions between block...

    This paper aimed to verify the function of ginsenoside in the repair of peripheral nerve injury through the model of sciatic nerve injury in rat. The method was to prepare the model of SD rat injury of sciatic nerve, and to conduct treatment with different dose of ginsenoside Rgl. At the same...

    One obstacle to effective gene therapies for neurological disorders lies in the cell-type diversity of the nervous system, making it difficult to direct gene delivery vectors to specific types of cells. To meet this challenge, we have developed a recombinant peptide-based gene delivery vector...
