Nanoemulsions - Findings from University of Paris Update Understanding of Nanoemulsions
2013 JUN 10 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Weekly -- Investigators discuss new findings in Nanoemulsions. According to news reporting originating in Paris, France, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Three multiple water-in-oil-in-water (W/O/W) nanoemulsions have been designed for potential inclusion of either lipophilic or hydrophilic drugs using a two-step emulsification process exclusively based on low-energy self-emulsification. The W/O primary emulsion was constituted by a blend of oil (medium chain triglyceride), a mixture (7:3) of two surfactants, and a 10% water phase. ...read more
Nanoemulsions - Findings from University of Sao Paulo in Nanoemulsions Reported
2013 JUN 10 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Weekly -- A new study on Nanoemulsions is now available. According to news originating from Sao Paulo, Brazil, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Commercial methotrexate formulations (MTX) have poor anti-inflammatory action for intra-articular treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Our aim was to investigate whether an association between methotrexate and lipidic nanoemulsions (LDE) could improve MTX intra-articular action. ...read more
Nanoemulsions - Reports Outline Nanoemulsions Research from University of Massachusetts
2012 DEC 3 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Weekly -- New research on Nanoemulsions is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating from Amherst, Massachusetts, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "The utilisation of carotenoids as functional ingredients (pigments and nutraceuticals) in many food and beverage products is currently limited because of their poor water-solubility, high melting point, chemical instability, and low bioavailability. This study examined the impact of antioxidants on the chemical degradation of ß-carotene encapsulated within nanoemulsions suitable for oral ingestion. ß-Carotene was incorporated into oil-in-water nanoemulsions stabilized by either a globular protein (ß-lactoglobulin) or a non-ionic surfactant (Tween 20). ...read more
