Nanoparticle research could enhance drug delivery through skin

9 octubre 2014

Key characteristics that enhance a nanoparticle’s ability to penetrate skin have been identified by researchers in a milestone study that could have major implications for the delivery of drugs. Nanoparticles are up to 100,000 times smaller than the thickness of a human hair and drugs delivered using them as a platform, can be more concentrated, targeted and efficient than those delivered through traditional means.
