PolySciTech Products In Literature

PLGA-PEG-COOH from PolySciTech used in development of macrophage targeting nanoparticles for treatment of inflammation.
The human immune system is a complex cascade of pathways, cells, and organs that exhibits several different modes of operation. The ability to modulate or adapt the action of this system can be used for both treatments of excess inflammation (i.e., rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders) as well as to optimize vaccine action. Recently, researchers at the University of Antwerp (Belgium) used PLGA-PEG-COOH (AI171) from PolySciTech to create macrophage-targeting nanoparticles and tracked their behavior. This research holds promise to improve therapeutic options for the treatment of many different diseases.
