PLGA-Rhodamine from PolySciTech used in research on SiRNA delivery as part of cystic fibrosis treatment development
Cystic Fibrosis is a severe and fatal lung disease that can potentially be treated by delivery of SiRNA to modify the way in which the lung fluids behave. Recently, researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (Germany), the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, the University of Milano, the University of Napoli Frederico II, and Children’s Hospital Bambino Gesu (Italy) used PLGA-Rhodamine (AV011) from PolySciTech to fluorescently label and track nanoparticles for an inhaled therapy application. This research holds promise to improve treatment against a wide variety of lung diseases.
