Lipophilic activated ester prodrug approach for drug delivery to the intestinal lymphatic system (2018)
Journal Article
Lee, J. B., Zgair, A., Malec, J., Kim, T. H., Kim, M. G., Ali, J., …Gershkovich, P. (2018). Lipophilic activated ester prodrug approach for drug delivery to the intestinal lymphatic system. Journal of Controlled Release, 286, (10-19). doi:10.1016/j.jconrel.2018.07.022. ISSN 0168-3659

The intestinal lymphatic system plays an important role in the pathophysiology of multiple diseases including lymphomas, cancer metastasis, autoimmune diseases, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. It is thus an important compartment for... Read More

In addition to cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is also characterized by agitation and disruptions in activity and sleep. These symptoms typically occur in the evening or at night and have been referred to as ‘sundowning’. These symptoms a... Read More

Bioreducible cross-linked core polymer micelles enhance in vitro activity of methotrexate in breast cancer cells (2017)
Journal Article
Gulfam, M., Matini, T., Monteiro, P. F., Riva, R., Collins, H., Spriggs, K., …Alexander, C. (2017). Bioreducible cross-linked core polymer micelles enhance in vitro activity of methotrexate in breast cancer cells. Biomaterials Science, 5, doi:10.1039/c6bm00888g. ISSN 2047-4830

Polymer micelles have emerged as promising carriers for controlled release applications, however, several limitations of micelle-based drug delivery have also been reported. To address these issues, we have synthesized a functional biodegradable and... Read More
