Topicnanomedicine & drug delivery, pharmacoengineering
“Nanozyme” technology incorporates proteins into nanosized core-shell polyion complex particles that preserve even very fragile proteins in biological milieu, decrease their clearance and allow their site-specific delivery across cellular barriers. Examples include nanozymes based on antioxidant enzymes , scavengers of organophosphorous toxins and neurotrophins for treatments of obesity, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, RETT syndrome, organophosphorous toxins poisoning, and some others.
