Nanoträgersystem zur Anwendung in der Wirkstoff- und Gentherapie

Forschende der Universität Basel haben ein intelligentes Nanoträgersystem auf Basis von Peptiden entwickelt. Aufgrund ihres besonderen Aufbaus organisieren sich diese Peptide in Wasser selbst zu etwa 200 Nanometer grossen sphärischen Kügelchen. Dieses neue Nanoträgersystem kann für den Transport und Schutz unterschiedlicher Gastmoleküle eingesetzt werden - denkbar ist insbesondere ein Einsatz in der Gentherapie.
