Save the Environment

It is really difficult to publish translational manuscripts these days, but this is a prime example of a good collaboration between pharmaceutical and environmental sciences. As pharmaceutical scientists, we sometimes have to use a certain material to facilitate drug therapy. But if we have a choice and more than one coating or one polymer actually works, why not choose the one which is best for the environment? This study helps you sort that out.

Predicting Nanomedicines

A wide variety of models have been established to predict the performance of nanomedicines for the peroral route of administration, but only a handful for injectables. Liposomal temoporfin has been evaluated in a phase I clinical trial. This investigation was focused on the prediction of the performance of liposomes in humans using preclinical in vitro and in vivo data. Congratulations to our young researcher Laura Jablonka who is responsible for this great accomplishment. Also, it is a prime example for international collaborations by involving researchers from Germany and Singapore…
