PLGA from PolySciTech used in development of doxorubicin-loaded particles for chemoimmunotherapy applications
Immunogenic cell death (ICD) is an immune response against cancers that can be leveraged to eliminate tumors. Recently, researchers at Korea University and Korea Institute of Science and Technology utilized PLGA (AP081) from PolySciTech to create doxorubicin-loaded nanoparticles for inducing ICD. This research holds promise to improve therapies against cancer in the future. Read more: Kim, Jeongrae, Yongwhan Choi, Suah Yang, Jaewan Lee, Jiwoong Choi, Yujeong Moon, Jinseong Kim et al. "Sustained and Long-Term Release of Doxorubicin from PLGA Nanoparticles for Eliciting Anti-Tumor Immune Responses." Pharmaceutics 14, no. 3 (2022): 474.

PLGA from PolySciTech used in development of wound-healing antibiotic delivery system.
Wounds often heal poorly due to bacterial intrusion. Recently, researchers at Assiut University (Egypt) utilized PLGA from PolySciTech to create silk-PLGA nanoparticles to improve wound healing. This research holds promise to improve treatments against infected wounds. Read more: Abd El-Aziz, Fatma El-Zahraa A., Helal F. Hetta, Basma N. Abdelhamid, and Noura H. Abd Ellah.
