Injecting Nanocarriers can Release Drugs for Months

A nanocarrier formulation that forms into a gel inside the body at the site of injection and then continuously releases drugs through nanoscale drug-loaded vehicles for months inside the body. Nanometer-scale vehicles called nanocarriers can deliver higher concentrations of drugs to bombard specific areas of the body while minimizing systemic side effects. Nanocarriers can also deliver drugs and diagnostic agents that are typically not soluble in water or blood as well as significantly decrease the effective dosage.
