Title: YEAST CELL WALL PARTICLES FOR RECEPTOR-TARGETED NANOPARTICLE DELIVERY. UMMS10-29; Patent 9,242,857

  • The present invention improves upon previously described yeast-based microencapsulation methodologies, in particular, by providing for the incorporation of nanoparticles into and/or onto yeast cell wall particles (YCWPs), for example, yeast glucan particles (microparticles) (YGPs). The improved technologies provide for delivery of nanoparticles, the nanoparticles themselves having utility in biomedical applications, or the nanoparticles imparting one or more functionalities of use in various biomedical, e.g., drug delivery applications.
