Targetable nanoparticles for efficient translocation across gastrointestinal barriers
A chemist uses a pipette to introduce cell samples into a so-called microtiter plate.

We have discovered that worm-like polymer micelles are selectively taken up into the inflamed mucosa of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. Selected modifications of the surface of these nanoparticles (e.g., by introduction of charges or targeting ligands) are expected to increase the uptake rate and enable an effective transport of anti-inflammatory drugs to local macrophages as main pro-inflammatory cells. This concept will be tested ex vivo on human macrobiopsies and in an advanced gut-on-a-chip model.
