Polyelectrolyte complexes as nanoparticulate drug delivery systems

3 July 2015 | By Anita Umerska, University of Anger and Lidia Tajber, Trinity College Dublin

Polyelectrolyte complexes at the nanoscale (polyelectrolyte complex nanoparticles; PECNs) can be harnessed as drug delivery systems for a range of low molecular weight drugs as well as peptides and proteins. The mild method of manufacture of PECNs results in the protection of the loaded bioactive and the choice of polyions…
