Biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles of poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) offer the advantage of controlling the release of drugs, however their bioadhesivity properties are low. On the other hand, chitosan (CTS) is a mucoadhesive polymer frequently used.
CLT-PLGA-CTS-NPs were prepared by the emulsion–diffusion method. The particle size.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
