Stable Theranostic And Therapeutic Nanoemulsions Using Triphilic Semifluorinated Amphiphiles
WARF: P170292US02

Inventors: Sandro Mecozzi, Alexa Heaton


The Invention
The present invention provides therapeutic formulations, including therapeutic nanoemulsions, and related methods for the in vivo delivery of hydrophobic compounds. Formulations and methods of the invention include semifluorinated block copolymers and an imaging compound to form a theranostic nanoemulsion, capable of forming a stable nanoemulsion. In certain embodiments, emulsion-based formulations are provided that are capable of formulating, delivering and releasing amounts of hydrophobic drugs effective for a range of clinical applications, including treating cancer and fungal infections in patients. In certain embodiments, emulsion-based formulations are provided that are capable of supporting controlled release, for example, over a range of rates useful for clinical applications including sustained release.
