Nanovesicles for the treatment of complex wounds: the revolution of nanomedicine
Lídia Ballell gives a short talk about the power of nanovesicles in this sort talk in the framework of the 10alamenos9 VI Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Festival "Vermú de nanociencia".
21 May 2021
In this talk, Lídia Ballell, explains the advantages of nanomedicine, and how a variety of nanoparticles can be used to improve the release of drugs in the body, using them as carriers of active molecules. In particular, she focuses on a type of nanovesicles, her object of study for the last few years: Quatsomes.
Quatsomes are a type of nanovesicles formed by self-assembly of sterols and quaternary ammonium surfactants. At the Nanomol group they synthesize Quatsomes using the Delos process, using compressed CO2, as you will see in the video. Lídia has studied this particles functionalized with human epidermal growth factor, as a topical treatment for complex wounds, particularly diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers.
