- ... The aim of this work was to develop and optimize a pH-responsive nanoparticle based on poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) and chitosan (CHIT) for delivery of natural antimicrobial using trans-cinnamaldehyde (TCIN) as a model compound. The optimization was performed using a central composite design and the desirability function approach. The optimized levels of variables considering all signific ...

- ... Antimicrobial peptides are protein fragments present in the innate immune systems of invertebrates and vertebrates as host defense molecules. Due to their unique properties, these compounds have several useful appliances in human health by potentially playing antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antitumor roles. The incorporation of antimicrobial peptides into polymer matrices as delivery sys ...
