Double functionalisation of titanium-based nanoparticles for drug delivery

07-May-2013 - India

Scientists in India report the functionalisation of TiO2 nanoparticles with two different biomolecules – tris-(nitrilo tris-acetic acid) and biotin. The biocompatible nanoparticles is non-cytotoxic and can deliver multiple biomolecules into the cell. In the future the nanoparticles could act as vehicles for delivering target specific drugs, therapeutic siRNA and therapeutic proteins in multi-drug resistant diseases.
