New formulation of old aspirin for better delivery

Author affiliations


For better use of cyclooxygenase dependent anti-inflammatory properties and mitochondrial activities of aspirin, new hydrophobic analogues of aspirin were developed and successfully encapsulated in polymeric nanoparticles (NPs). In vivo anti-inflammatory effects of these NPs using a mouse model demonstrated unique properties of an optimized aspirin analogue to inhibit production of pro-inflammatory and enrichment of anti-inflammatory cytokines.
