Healthcare-associated infections are a concern for health service providers, exacerbated by poor delivery of antimicrobials to target sites within the skin. The dermal route is attractive for local and systemic delivery of drugs however; permeation, penetration and access to deeper skin layers are restricted due to the barrier function of the stratum corneum. Solid lipid nanoparticles present several benefits for topical delivery for therapeutic applications, especially via the follicular route. Hair follicles, surrounded by a close network of blood capillaries and dendritic cells, are an important target for delivery of antimicrobials and present a unique microbial nidus for endogenous infections in situations where the barrier is disrupted, such as after surgery, for example...

Two-level systems for oral delivery of therapeutic peptides were developed; the carriers consist of CaCO3 cores included into alginate granules. Such systems were first used for the delivery of low molecular weight drugs. It was shown that efficiency of encapsulation of peptides depends on their pI value, hydrophobicity, characteristics of the compounds used for doping CaCO3 cores, their surface? -potential and the techniques employed for loading peptides into the first-level carriers. Doping CaCO3 cores with dextran sulfate saves their viability compared to the pristine CaCO3 cores, but ensures delivery of the desired quantity of peptide when using a smaller amount of delivery systems...
