Polyphosphoester-Based Cationic Nanoparticles Serendipitously Release Integral Biologically-Active Components to Serve as Novel Degradable Inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase Inhibitors




A degradable polyphosphoester (PPE)-based cationic nanoparticle (cSCK), which is integrated constructed as a novel degradable drug device, demonstrates surprisingly efficient inhibition of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) transcription, and eventually inhibits nitric oxide (NO) over-production, without loading of any specific therapeutic drugs. This system may serve as a promising anti-inflammatory agent toward the treatment of acute lung injury.
