Recently, medical applications of nanotechnology have attracted growing interest. In particular, considerable attention is being focused on the nanotechnology-based drug delivery, because its strategic rationale has been demonstrated. Polymeric micelles, self-assemblies of block copolymers, are promising nanocarrier systems for drug and gene.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
