Drug Delivery 2015 : Preparation and application of a novel intact solid lipid nano-vesicles - Zhijun Yang - Hong Kong Baptist University


We have successfully achieved the preparation of intact solid lipid nano-vesicles that carry active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and upon rehydration form liposomes with controlled drug release capability. To demonstrate this, solid lipid nanovesicles were prepared by lyophilizing the mixture of liposomes combined with or without ligands such as DSS or CA9, entrapped water-soluble API such as albuterol or siRNA or insulin, mixed with cryo-protectant lactose and a plasticizer glycerol and water. Liposome structure, entrapped API and controlled release capability were retained after lyophilization and rehydration, and the in vivo delivery effectives were confirmed. Since solid lipid nano-vesicles are more adaptable than liposomes or other nanoparticles to a wide variety of APIs and dosage forms, our novel invention allows a much wider usage of liposome technology in numerous pharmaceutical, chemical and biological situations. Microvesicles (ectosomes, or microparticles) are a kind of extracellular vesicle (EV) that are discharged from the cell membrane. In multicellular life forms, microvesicles and different EVs are discovered both in tissues (in the interstitial space among cells) and in numerous sorts of body fluids. Delimited by a phospholipid bilayer, microvesicles can be as little as the littlest EVs (30 nm in distance across) or as extensive as 1000 nm. All things considered, than intracellularly-created EVs known as exosomes. Microvesicles assume a job in intercellular correspondence and can ship atoms, for example, mRNA, miRNA, and proteins between cells. In spite of the fact that at first excused as cell trash, microvesicles may mirror the antigenic substance of the phone of source and have a job in cell flagging. Like different EVs, they been involved in various physiologic procedures, including against tumor impacts, tumor insusceptible concealment, metastasis, tumor-stroma communications, angiogenesis, and tissue regeneration. Microvesicles may likewise expel misfolded proteins, cytotoxic specialists and metabolic waste from the cell.Changes in microvesicle levels may show ailments including malignancy. Various cells can discharge microvesicles from the plasma film. Wellsprings of microvesicles incorporate megakaryocytes, blood platelets, monocytes, neutrophils, tumor cells and placenta. Platelets assume a significant job in looking after hemostasis: they advance clots development, and along these lines they forestall loss of blood. In addition, they improve invulnerable reaction, since they express the particle CD154 (CD40L). Platelets are initiated by irritation, contamination, or injury, and after their enactment microvesicles containing CD154 are discharged from platelets. CD154 is a urgent atom in the advancement of T cell-subordinate humoral insusceptible reaction. CD154 knockout mice are unequipped for creating IgG, IgE, or IgA as a reaction to antigens. Microvesicles can likewise move prions and particles CD41 and CXCR4. Endothelial microparticles are little vesicles that are discharged from endothelial cells and can be discovered flowing in the blood. The microparticle comprises of a plasma layer encompassing a modest quantity of cytosol. The layer of the endothelial microparticle contains receptors and other cell surface atoms which empower the recognizable proof of the endothelial root of the microparticle, and permit it to be recognized from microparticles from different cells, for example, platelets. Albeit coursing endothelial microparticles can be found in the blood of ordinary people, expanded quantities of flowing endothelial microparticles have been distinguished in people with specific maladies, including hypertension and cardiovascular disorders, and pre-eclampsia and different types of vasculitis. The endothelial microparticles in a portion of these infection states have been appeared to have varieties of cell surface atoms mirroring a condition of endothelial brokenness. Hence, endothelial microparticles might be valuable as a pointer or record of the utilitarian condition of the endothelium in sickness, and may possibly assume key jobs in the pathogenesis of specific infections, including rheumatoid arthritis. Microparticles are gotten from numerous other cell types. Microvesicles and exosomes are shaped and discharged by two marginally various systems. These procedures bring about the arrival of intercellular flagging vesicles. Microvesicles are little, plasma film determined particles that are discharged into the extracellular condition by the outward maturing and splitting of the plasma layer. This growing procedure includes various flagging pathways including the rise of intracellular calcium and rearrangement of the cell's basic framework. The arrangement and arrival of microvesicles include contractile hardware that draws restricting films together before squeezing off the layer association and propelling the vesicle into the extracellular space. Microvesicle sprouting happens at novel areas on the cell layer that are improved with explicit lipids and proteins mirroring their phone birthplace. At these areas, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids are specifically joined into microvesicles and discharged into the encompassing environment. Exosomes are layer secured vesicles, shaped intracellularly are viewed as littler than 100 nm. As opposed to microvesicles, which are framed through a procedure of film maturing, or exocytosis, exosomes are at first shaped by endocytosis. Exosomes are framed by invagination inside a phone to make an intracellular vesicle called an endosome, or an endocytic vesicle. All in all, exosomes are framed by isolating the payload (e.g., lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids) inside the endosome. When framed, the endosome joins with a structure known as a multivesicular body (MVB). The MVB containing isolated endosomes at last circuits with the plasma film, coming about in exocytosis of the exosomes. When shaped, both microvesicles and exosomes (all things considered called extracellular vesicles) course in the extracellular space close to the site of discharge, where they can be taken up by different cells or slowly fall apart. What's more, a few vesicles move critical separations by dissemination, at last showing up in natural liquids, for example, cerebrospinal liquid, blood, and urine.
