Chemotherapeutic drugs can help to fight cancer, they also can be very difficult to dissolve, to make intravenous injections. Scientists developed special polymeric nanoparticles, which work as drug delivery vehicles, to improve drug efficacy. To measure hydrophobic drug concentration in blood plasma, the albumin-assisted dialysis method has been recently developed by Clemson scientists. Albumin is a major blood transport protein, which mediates transport of many hydrophobic compounds such as hormones, and in this method, albumin helps to measure drug release kinetic.
