Abstract

F127 pluronic in coformulation with sodium cholate as hosting system for doxorubicin Elisamaria Tasca, Mauro Giustini, Luciano Galantini, Karin Schillén* Chemistry Department, University “La Sapienza”, 00185 Rome (Italy), * Division of Physical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Lund University, Lund (Sweden) Nonionic pluronic triblock copolymers received considerable attention as modern drug delivery carriers [1]. They have the general formula PEOx-PPOy-PEOx, and are composed of a hydrophobic poly(propylene oxide) (PPO) block and two units of a hydrophilic poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) block [2].
