Advantages of nanotechnology-based Chinese herb drugs on biological activities

, : Advantages of nanotechnology-based Chinese herb drugs on biological activities. Current Drug Metabolism 10(8): 905-913

A number of new nanotechnology-based Chinese herb drugs have been developed that have efficient biopharmaceutical properties and desirable target characteristics. This offers several alternatives for medical applications. Nanoparticles of Chinese herb drugs possess many benefits, such as improving component solubility, enhancement of bioavailability, increasing absorbency of the organism, reducing medicinal herb doses, and achieving steady-state therapeutic levels of drugs over an extended period compared with traditional Chinese herb drug preparations. There are two basic techniques, 'bottom up' or 'top down', to prepare Chinese herb nanoparticles. Furthermore, specific surface modifications and new design strategies of Chinese herb drug nanoparticles are created to profit clinical applications. This review presents recent advances in nanotechnology-based Chinese herb drugs.

On the basis of a study of crosses between Lycopersicon esculentum varieties and the self-incompatible wild species L. hirsutum, hybrid necrosis is thought to be due to allelic interaction at a single locus which, it is argued, is the self incompa...

Chronic exposure to ethanol can induce widespread cell loss in the brain, in some cases even causing dementia. Although the underlying mechanism associated with ethanol toxicity has not yet been established, it is suggested that one of the ways in...
