New advancement in glioblastoma targeted therapy: research paper of our center successfully accepted for publication on Advanced Materials.

Our new research paper titled “Effective and Targeted Human Orthotopic Glioblastoma Xenografts Therapy via a Multifunctional Biomimetic Nanomedicine” was recently accepted for publication on Advanced Materials with no comments. In this article, our team has developed erythrocyte membrane coated with biomimetic nanomedicine for the use of efficient and safe glioblastoma targeted therapy. This new approach potentially solved several pressing obstacles faced by traditional nanomedicine, such as poor biocompatibility, short blood circulation time, limited blood brain barrier (BBB) crossing ability, systemic side effect and low drug availability. This multifunctional biomimetic nanomedicine platform is promised as a novel treatment for clinical brain related diseases, including glioblastoma.  

Advanced Materials is an international top peer-reviewed journal with a current IF of 21.95.

The main body of this work was completed here in our center, in collaboration with Prof. Roger Chung’s lab in Macquarie University as well as Dr. Geng’s lab in Sichuan University. Dr. Zou and Ph.D. candidate Yanjie Liu are shared first authors, and Prof. Shi and Prof. Zheng as co-corresponding authors.
