Abstract
Abstract Zwitterionic polymer nanoparticles of diverse morphologies (spherical, cylindrical, and platelet-like) constructed from biocompatible sugar-based polymers are designed to extend the pharmacological activities of short- and long-acting insulin peptides, thereby providing potential for therapeutic systems capable of reducing the frequency of administration and improving patient compliance. Amphiphilic block copolymers composed of zwitterionic poly( d -glucose carbonate) and semicrystalline polylactide segments were synthesized, and the respective block length ratios were tuned to allow formation of nanoscopic assemblies having different morphologies. Insulin-loaded nanoparticles had similar sizes and morphologies to the unloaded nanoparticle counterparts. Laser scanning confocal microscopy imaging of three-dimensional spheroids of vascular smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts after treatment with LIVE/DEAD® stain and FITC-insulin-loaded nanoparticles demonstrated high biocompatibility for the nanoconstructs of the various morphologies and significant intracellular uptake of insulin in both cell lines, respectively. Binding of short-acting insulin and long-acting insulin glargine to nanoparticles resulted in extended hypoglycemic activities in rat models of diabetes. Following subcutaneous injection in diabetic rats, insulin- and insulin glargine-loaded nanoparticles of diverse morphologies had demonstrated up to 2.6-fold and 1.7-fold increase in pharmacological availability, in comparison to free insulin and insulin glargine, respectively. All together, the negligible cytotoxicity, immunotoxicity, and minimal cytokine adsorption onto nanoparticles (as have been demonstrated in our previous studies) provide exciting and promising evidence of biocompatible nanoconstructs that are poised for further development toward the management of diabetes.

Platelet-like and cylindrical nanostructures from sugar-based polymers are designed to mimic the aspect ratio of bacteria and achieve uroepithelial cell binding and internalization, thereby improving their potential for local treatment of recurrent urinary tract infections. Polymer nanostructures, derived from amphiphilic block polymers composed of zwitterionic poly(d-glucose carbonate) and semicrystalline poly(l-lactide) segments, were constructed with morphologies that could be tuned to enhanc...

Abstract The utilization of nanomaterials in the biological and medical field is quickly progressing, particularly in areas where traditional diagnostics and treatment approaches have limited success. The success of nanomaterials in medical products such as biomedical implants wound dressings and drug delivery systems rely upon their effective interaction between the extracellular matrix, cells, and intracellular components. Upon contact with mammalian cells, nanoparticles (NPs) begin to interac...

The self-assembly of block copolymers into 1D, 2D and 3D nano- and microstructures is of great interest for a wide range of applications. A key challenge in this field is obtaining independent control over molecular structure and hierarchical structure in all dimensions using scalable one-pot chemistry. Here we report on the ring opening polymerization-induced crystallization-driven self-assembly (ROPI-CDSA) of poly-L-lactide-block-polyethylene glycol block copolymers into 1D, 2D and 3D nanostru...

Abstract In this work, we successfully developed poly(acrylamido phenylboronic acid)/sodium alginate nanoparticles (NPs) via formation of cycloborates (glucose- and H2O2-responsive functional groups), as an improved glucose-mediated insulin delivery system loaded with glucose oxidase (GOx). Dynamic light scattering revealed that the GOx-loaded NPs showed better glucose-sensitivity than the GOx-unloaded NPs. In addition, compared to insulin-loaded NPs, the insulin/GOx-loaded NPs displayed faster ...

Oral administration has been the most common therapeutic regimen in various diseases because of its high safety, convenience, lower costs, and high compliance of patients. However, susceptible in hostile gastrointestinal (GI) environment, many drugs show poor permeability across GI tract mucus and intestinal epithelium with poor oral absorption and limited therapeutic efficacy. In recent years, nanoparticulate drug delivery systems (NDDS) have become a hot research spot because of their unique a...

The therapeutic efficacy of drugs is dependent upon the ability of a drug to reach its target, and drug penetration into tumors is limited by abnormal vasculature and high interstitial pressure. Chemotherapy is the most common systemic treatment for cancer but can cause undesirable adverse effects, including toxicity to the bone marrow and gastrointestinal system. Therefore, nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems have been developed to reduce the adverse effects of traditional chemotherapy b...

Daily injections for basal insulin therapy are far from ideal resulting in hypo/hyperglycemic episodes associated with fatal complications in type-1 diabetes patients. Here we report a delivery system that provides controlled release of insulin closely mimicking physiological basal insulin requirement for an extended period following a single subcutaneous injection. Stability of insulin was significantly improved by formation of zinc-insulin hexamers, further stabilized by electrostatic complex ...

: Nanoparticles have become an important utility in many areas of medical treatment such as targeted drug and treatment delivery as well as imaging and diagnostics. These advances require a complete understanding of nanoparticles' fate once placed in the body. Upon exposure to blood, proteins adsorb onto the nanoparticles surface and form a protein corona, which determines the particles' biological fate. This study reports on the protein corona formation from blood serum and plasma on spherical ...

Abstract Living crystallization-driven self-assembly (CDSA) has emerged as a technique that is able to perform solution phase self-assembly of semi-crystalline block copolymers in a controlled and modular fashion. It has been widely demonstrated to generate myriads of submicron-sized assemblies ranging from low-curvature non-spherical particles to complex hierarchical architectures with precise morphological and dimensional control. Living CDSA has since displayed enormous potential as a synthet...

Materials that perform complex chemical signal processing are ubiquitous in living systems. Their synthetic analogs would transform developments in biomedicine, catalysis, and many other areas. By drawing inspiration from biological signaling dynamics, we show how simple hydrogels have a previously untapped capacity for non-equilibrium chemical signal processing and integration. Using a common polyacrylic acid hydrogel, with divalent cations and acid as representative stimuli, we demonstrate the...
