Louisiana Tech researchers feature drug reformulation in prestigious journal
Date:7/11/2008

Dr. Yuri Lvov, a professor of chemistry and T. Pipes endowed chair in micro and nanosystems at Louisiana Tech University, and Anshul Agarwal, a Louisiana Tech doctoral candidate in biomedical engineering feature their cancer drug reformulation work in the most recent issue of Pharma Focus Asia, one of the largest and most respected pharmaceutical science journals in the world.

"This is the largest Asian pharmacological journal and is turned to by millions of people working in the medical industry," says Lvov.

Lvov and Agarwal also share the cover of Pharma Focus Asia with some of the world's leading nanotechnology experts including Dr. George Whitesides of Harvard University, one of the top nanotechnology researchers in the U.S, who was also featured in this issue.

"The recognition that Dr. Lvov has received through this cover story confirms the world-wide leadership position that his research, his colleagues, and Louisiana Tech University holds," says Dr. Stan Napper, dean of Louisiana Tech's College of Engineering and Science.

Working from Louisiana Tech's Institute for Micromanufacturing, Lvov and Agarwal collaborated with pharmaceutical researchers from Northeastern University in Boston on an article titled "Sonication-Assisted Nanoencapsulation." The article looks at nanoencapsulation of low soluble cancer drugs and presents an innovative approach for adjusting drug release rates and attaching antibodies at the outer shell layers for targeted drug delivery.

"We may be able to drastically increase the efficiency of existing low-soluble cancer drugs by way of their nanoparticle formulation," says Lvov. "We are working with several other institutions around the country that are currently in the process of testing our new drug formulation."

"The application of his approach to nanoassembly into clinical drug delivery will enable further improvements in cancer therapy that may reduce some of the traum
