Luís Bastos's curator insight, February 20, 2013 1:18 PM

Effective peptide and protein delivery to the skin has received much attention in the pharmaceutical industry, with many companies developing a variety of delivery devices to force peptides and proteins into and across the epithelium of the skin. Despite these many attempts, effective delivery of high-molecular-mass compounds has at best been poor. The water-in-oil microemulsion system may overcome the water-impermeable barrier of the epidermis and allows for effective delivery of highly water-soluble molecules such as peptides and proteins following topical application.

Specific molecules on white blood cells' membranes signal to other cells that they belong in the body. By coating nanoparticle drug vehicles with these same lipids and proteins, scientists at the Methodist Hospital Research Institute in Houston have created "LeukoLike Vectors," or LLVs, that are similarly welcomed by the immune system.

Lung Cancer (NSCLC), drug administration and nanotechnology ... | Nanopharma | Scoop.it

Since lung cancer is the most leading cause of death in both man and women, and have gained lots of attention I am interested in elaborating on NSCLC and explore the potential use of nanotechnology in this matter.
