Despite the many advantages of small interfering RNA (siRNA) inhalation therapy and a growing prevalence of respiratory pathologies, its clinical translation is severely hampered by inefficient intracellular delivery. To this end, we previously developed hybrid nanoparticles consisting of an siRNA-loaded nanosized hydrogel core (nanogel) coated with Curosurf®, a clinically used pulmonary surfactant (PS). Interestingly, the PS shell was shown to markedly improve particle stability as well as intracellular siRNA delivery in vitro and in vivo...

Immediate hemorrhage control and anti-infection play important roles in the wound management. Besides, a moist environment is also beneficial for wound healing. Hydrogels are promising materials in urgent hemostasis and drug release. However, hydrogels have the disadvantage of rapid release profiles, leading to the exposure to high drug concentrations. In this study, we constructed hybrid hydrogels with rapid hemostasis and sustainable antibacterial property combining aminoethyl methacrylate hyaluronic acid (HA-AEMA) and methacrylated methoxy polyethylene glycol (mPEG-MA) hybrid hydrogels and chlorhexidine diacetate (CHX)-loaded nanogels...

An easy strategy to obtain nanohydrogels within the halloysite nanotube (HNTs) lumen was investigated. Inorganic reverse micelles based on HNTs and hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromides were dispersed in chloroform, and the hydrophilic cavity was used as a nanoreactor to confine the gel formation based on alginate cross-linked by calcium ions. Spectroscopy and electron microscopy experiments proved the confinement of the polymer into the HNT lumen and the formation of calcium-mediated networks. Biological tests proved the biocompatibility of the hybrid hydrogel...

Functional siRNAs are employed as cross-linkers to direct the self-assembly of DNA-grafted polycaprolactone (DNA-g-PCL) brushes to form spherical and nanosized hydrogels via nucleic acid hybridization in which small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are fully embedded and protected for systemic delivery. Owing to the existence of multivalent mutual crosslinking events inside, the crosslinked nanogels with tunable size exhibit not only good thermostability, but also remarkable physiological stability that can resist the enzymatic degradation...

Polymer nano-sized hydrogels (nanogels) as drug delivery carriers have been investigated over the last few decades. Pullulan, a nontoxic and nonimmunogenic hydrophilic polysaccharide derived from fermentation of black yeast like Aureobasidium pullulans with great biocompatibility and biodegradability, is one of the most attractive carriers for drug delivery systems. In this review, we describe the preparation, characterization, and 'switch-on/off' mechanism of typical pullulan self-assembled nanogels (self-nanogels), and then introduce the development of hybrid hydrogels that are numerous resources applied for regenerative medicine...

The purpose of this study is to design and develop thermoresponsive nano-sized hydrogel particles from a natural polymer, chitosan, as smart material platforms for curcumin delivery. Chitosan was used as the backbone material to be grafted with poly-(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAM) using an EDC/NHS coupling reaction. The conjugated products were characterized by 1 H NMR and TGA. Chitosan-grafted pNIPAM (CS-g-pN) nanogels were prepared by a sonication method. The loading of curcumin into the CS-g-pN nanogels was achieved using an incubation method...

Hydrogels are promising 3D materials that have demonstrated increasing applications in the encapsulation and delivery of drugs and cells. Herein we report an injectable colloidal hydrogel that directly assembled by graphene oxide (GO) and thermo-sensitive nanogels (tNG). The pH dependent hydrogen bonding interactions between the carboxyl and oxethyl groups induce the reversible assembly of GO and nanogels. The hydrogel is mouldable and can be shaped into different macroscopic objects, and the mechanical strengths are tunable with pH and temperature adjustment...

Biocompatible, biodegradable and stimuli-responsive nanomaterials can be used as drug carriers and to achieve controlled drug delivery, which is crucial for treating tumors and lowering drug side effects. Calcium phosphate (CaP) nanoparticles and poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) hydrogels can be used as biocompatible and pH-responsive drug carriers. In this study, based on the ultrasound effect, PAA/CaP hybrid nanogels (approximately 100nm, PDI<0.2) are obtained via the cross-linking of CaP nanoparticles and PAA molecules between the Ca2+ ions and -COOH groups...

Intraperitoneal administration of chemotherapeutics is expected for the treatment of peritoneally disseminated gastric cancer because of poor migration of the drugs from the systemic circulation to the peritoneal cavity. In this study, for intraperitoneal delivery of cisplatin (CDDP), we developed a hyaluronan (HA)-based hybrid system in which CDDP-loaded HA nanogels were either physically encapsulated in or chemically conjugated to injectable HA hydrogels. Physical encapsulation enabled sustained release of HA nanogels from the HA hydrogel matrix for over a week...

The paper demonstrates a class of multifunctional core-shell hybrid nanogels with fluorescent and magnetic properties, which have been successfully developed for simultaneous optical temperature sensing, tumor cell imaging and magnetic/NIR-thermally responsive drug carriers. The as-synthesized hybrid nanogels were designed by coating bifunctional nanoparticles (BFNPs, fluorescent carbon dots embedded in the porous carbon shell and superparamagnetic iron oxide nanocrystals clustered in the core) with a thermo-responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylamide) [poly(NIPAM-AAm)]-based hydrogel as the shell...

The development of multimodal in situ cross-linkable hyaluronic acid nanogels hybridized with iron oxide nanoparticles is reported. Utilizing a chemoselective hydrazone coupling reaction, the nanogels are converted to a macroscopic hybrid hydrogel without any additional reagent. Hydrophobic cargos remain encapsulated in the hydrophobic domains of the hybrid hydrogel without leakage. However, hydrogel degradation with hyaluronidase liberates iron oxide nanoparticles. This allows the utilization of imaging agents as tracers of the hydrogel degradation...

Cancer-targeting gold/polyacrylamide (Au-PAm) hybrid nanogels were successfully synthesized via water/oil microemulsion polymerization followed by in situ reduction of gold and chemical modification with methotrexate (MTX). The Au nanoparticles range from ~3 to 7 nm and the loading in the hydrogel can be easily controlled. Dynamic light scattering results showed that the hydrodynamic size distribution of these hybrid nanogels is similar to that of blank PAm nanogels (average diameter of ~30 nm), indicating that the Au nanoparticles were mostly incorporated into/onto the nanogels...

Liposomes are important biomolecular nanostructures for handling membrane-associated molecules in the lab and delivering drugs in the clinic. In addition to their biomedical applications, they have been widely used as model cell membranes in biophysical studies. Here we present a liposome-based model membrane that mimics the attachment of membrane-resident molecules to the cytoskeleton. To facilitate this attachment, we have developed a lipid-based hybrid nanostructure in which the liposome bilayer membrane is covalently anchored to a biocompatible poly(ethylene) glycol (PEG) hydrogel core using short double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) linkers...
