Amphiphilic poly(3-hydroxylalkanoate) (PHA) copolymers find interesting applications in drug delivery. The aim of this study was to prepare nucleic acid adsorbed on (PHB-b-PEG-NH2) nanoparticle platform for gene delivery. For this purpose, PHB-b-PEG-NH2 block copolymers were synthesized via transesterification reactions. The copolymers obtained were characterized by Proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1H-NMR), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR), Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) techniques. The cytotoxic, apoptotic and necrotic effects of these nanoparticles in the MDA 231 human . . .breast cancer cell, the A549 human lung cancer cell and the L929 fibroblast cell lines were also investigated. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Daha fazlası Daha az

Antimicrobial mixed dressings have traditionally been used to minimize bacterial infection of burns and other wounds. This study presents the advancement of biocompatible chitosan/silk sericin (CHT/SS) scaffolds combined with lauric acid (LA) and zinc oxide nanoparticles (nZnO) for the successful wound dressing applications. Antibacterial assay results showed that the diameters of the inhibition zone increased from 2 ± 0.4 to 7 ± 0.1 mm for Escherichia coli, as well as from 2.5 ± 0.2 to 6 ± 0.4 mm for Staphylococcus aureus while CHTS/SS/100nZnO compared to CHT/SS/0.01LA. The results not only showed excellent inhibition against Gram- . . .positive and Gram-negative bacterial growth but also revealed improved proliferation and extended viability for HaCaT cells. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group Daha fazlası Daha az
