Biologically triggered exploding protein based microcapsules for drug delivery

Author affiliations

Abstract

Biologically triggered exploding microcapsules were synthesized by layer-by-layer assembly of biopolymers. The microcapsules showed controlled rupturing behaviour upon exposure to a pathologically relevant biomolecule, trypsin. These microcapsules offer significant potential for clinical applications.
