Studies from Brandeis University in the Area of Drug Delivery Systems Reported (Design and Synthesis of Nanofibers of Self-assembled Glycoconjugates towards Mucosal Lining Restoration and Anti-Inflammatory Drug Delivery)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Weekly Fresh data on Drugs and Therapies - Drug Delivery Systems are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Waltham, Massachusetts, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "The medical practice for IBD is solely based on anti-inflammatory drugs, but the outcome is far from ideal. Our long-term research goal is to seek a better clinical outcome by combining the anti-inflammatory therapy with physical mucus layer restoration."

Financial supporters for this research include National Institutes of Health (NIH), Kenneth Rainin Foundation.

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Brandeis University, "As the first step towards that objective, we choose to develop self-assembled hydrogels of glycoconjugates that consist of anti-inflammatory drugs and glycopeptides. By covalently linking peptides (e.g., nap-phe-phe-lys), saccharides (e.g., glucosamine), and an anti-inflammatory drug (i.e., olsalazine), we have demonstrated that the obtained molecules self-assemble in water to form hydrogels composed of 3D networks of the nanofibers under acidic conditions. We also confirmed that the resulting glycoconjugates are cell compatible."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "However, the preliminary assessment of the efficacy of the hydrogels on the murine model is inconclusive, which warrants further investigation and molecular engineering."
