Nanoparticles carting steroids to retina delay macular degeneration

from FierceDrugDelivery

Researchers have developed a sustained-release drug delivery system that successfully brought steroids to the retina to treat degenerative eye conditions. Nanoparticles known as dendrimers gave the treatment a ride in. Details of the study — developed by researchers from Wayne State University, the Mayo Clinic and The Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins — are published in the journal Biomaterials. Scientists believe that the treatments could offer a targeted, sustained release drug treatment for both age-related macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa. more
