A Novel niosome gene delivery approach for central nervous system disorders

Gustavo Puras

University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU

Prof. Gustavo Puras research is mainly focused on nanotechnology and several areas of drug delivery, specially, the development of novel non-viral gene delivery systems based on polymeric, lipidic or magnetic nanoparticles to face neurodegenerative disorders that affect mainly to brain and retina.


Introduction Glial cells are part of the nervous tissue where they nourish protect and regulate neuronal function. Therefore, they are ideal vehicle for gene therapy of brain diseases. Niosomes represent a recent safe approach... [ view full abstract ]
