Av. Monforte de Lemos, 3-5. Pabellón 11. Planta 0 28029 Madrid

Self-assembled functional acrylic copolymers and terpolymers and their use as vehicles of bioactive compounds

managed by CIBER-BBN


Our innovation:
New family of amphiphilic copolymers and terpolymers that form bioactive polymeric nanoparticles
This family of copolymers and terpolymers contain an antioxidant agent as a bioactive and hydrophobic component
This family of copolymers and terpolymers are highly antioxidant and amphiphilic, and form nanoparticles
These nanoparticles can be used as controlled delivery systems for the administration of bioactive agents with low solubility in physiological conditions (e.g. active substances with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, activating tissue regeneration, antibiotic, antiproliferative, antimicrobial, etc. effects)


Competitive advantages: Good stability in physiological medium. Easily eliminated by the body through the normal metabolic pathway. They can be administered by injection in the area that are required or applied in aqueous dispersions or in hydrophilic gels either topically or locally. Good cytocompatibility.

Readiness Level (TRL)

experimental proof of concept(The pie chart refers to the entire portfolio contained in the database of the helpdesk)

Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) are a method of estimating technology maturity of Critical Technology Elements (CTE) of a program during the acquisition process. The use of TRLs enables consistent, uniform, discussions of technical maturity across different types of technology.
