Novel Folic Acid Targeted Nanomicelles For Delivery Of Hydrophobic Drugs To The Back Of The Eye
(University of Missouri -- Kansas City, 2019)
Overall aim of this research project is to develop folic acid targeted nanomicelles loaded with insoluble hydrophobic drugs for delivery to posterior segment of the eye. Retinoblastoma and uveitis are diseases that ...
Novel targeted lipid prodrugs to improve cellular absorption of acyclovir and topical delivery to the eye via nanomicellar approach
Biotinylated lipid prodrugs of acyclovir (ACV) were designed to target the sodium dependent multivitamin transporter (SMVT) on the intestine and cornea to facilitate ACV cellular transport. All the prodrugs were screened ...
Ritonavir - A Novel Multidrug Resistance Modulator in Cancer Chemotherapy and Ocular Neovascular Diseases
Multidrug resistance (MDR), a clinical outcome characterized by subtherapeutic intracellular drug concentration, is one of the predominant factors limiting effective cancer chemotherapy. Several possible mechanisms and ...
Transporter-Targeted Prodrug Delivery to Improve Oral Bioavailability of Saquinavir
Saquinavir (SQV) is the first antiretroviral protease inhibitor approved by Food and Drug Administration in the United States for the treatment of HIV infection due to its potent anti-HIV activity. However, some unfavorable ...
Long Term Ocular Drug Delivery with Novel Pentablock Copolymers; Part I: Composite Nanoformulation of Macromolecules For Back of the Eye Diseases, Part II: Dexamethasone Nanoparticle to Develop an In Vitro Model for Glaucoma
(University of Missouri -- Kansas City, 2017)
Pentablock (PB) copolymers have been successfully synthesized for long term delivery in the treatment of posterior segment ocular diseases. PB copolymers are comprised of FDA approved biodegradable polymer such as ...
Novel Transporter Targeted Lipid Ester Prodrugs of Cidofovir and Sustained Release Formulations for Cytomegalovirus Infection
Cidofovir (CDF) has shown potential in vitro and in vivo antiviral activity against cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis. However, low CDF permeability due to its hydrophilic nature limits its effectiveness. Furthermore, ...
