We report on the encapsulation of high loadings of liquid isophorone diisocyanate (IPDI) in biodegradable, temperature-responsive poly(e-caprolactone) (PCL) microcapsules (MCs), aimed to be applied...

Abstract Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) is an alternative to chemical fertilizers for sustainable, environment friendly agriculture. There is a need to develop strategies to potentiate the interaction between rhizobacteria and plants. Flavonoids and organic acids (components of root exudates) play specific beneficial roles as carbon sources and signal molecules in the plant – rhizobacteria interactions. The goal of this work is to encapsulate signal molecules, namely citric acid and...

A (model) composite system for drug delivery was developed based on a thermoresponsive hydrogel loaded with microparticles. We used Pluronic F127 hydrogel as the continuous phase and alginate microparticles as the dispersed phase of this composite system. It is well known that Pluronic F127 forms a gel when added to water in an appropriate concentration and in a certain temperature range. Pluronic F127 hydrogel may be loaded with drug and injected, in its sol state, to act as a drug delivery sys...

Pluronic PE9400/water binary systems at different concentrations were characterized by means of rheological and microstructural techniques. Temperature ramps revealed a structural transition defined by three zones, which determine time-dependent behaviors. Thus, non-time-dependent, antithixotropic, and thixotropic behaviors were observed depending on Pluronic’s concentration and temperature. These phenomena were analyzed resorting to rheological tools, namely hysteresis loops and transient tests...

Abstract With the advancement in medical science and understanding the importance of biodistribution and pharmacokinetics of therapeutic agents, modern drug delivery research strives to utilize novel materials and fabrication technologies for the preparation of robust drug delivery systems to combat acute and chronic diseases. Compared to traditional drug carriers, which could only control the release of the agents in a monotonic manner, the new drug carriers are able to provide a precise contro...

Compartmentalized structures widely exist in cellular systems (organelles) and perform essential functions in smart composite materials (microcapsules, vasculatures, and micelles) to provide localized functionality and enhance materials’ compatibility. An entirely water-free compartmentalization system is of significant value to the materials community as nonaqueous conditions are critical to packaging microcapsules with water-free hydrophilic payloads while avoiding energy-intensive drying step...

Hydrogels are promising materials in regenerative medicine applications, due to their hydrophilicity, biocompatibility and capacity to release drugs and growth factors in a controlled manner. In this study, biocompatible and biodegradable hydrogels based on blends of natural polymers were used in in vitro and ex vivo experiments as a tool for VEGF-controlled release to accelerate the nerve regeneration process. Among different candidates, the angiogenic factor VEGF was selected, since angiogenes...

Injectable hydrogels are becoming of increasing interest in the field of tissue engineering thanks to their versatile properties and to the possibility of being injected into tissues or devices during surgery. In peripheral nerve tissue engineering, injectable hydrogels having shear-thinning properties are advantageous as filler of nerve guidance channels (NGCs) to improve the regeneration process. In the present work, gelatin-based hydrogels were developed and specifically designed for the inse...

Edible, surfactant-stripped, frozen micelles are formed from pheophytin (demetallated chlorophyll), a pigment that is naturally consumed in human diets. Pheophytin nanoparticles pass completely and safely through the gastrointestinal tract and enable trimodal gut contrast imaging via photoacoustic, fluorescence, and positron emission tomography techniques.
