Manufacturing of Carbohydrate-based Delivery Systems

Manufacturing of Carbohydrate-based Delivery Systems

CD BioGlyco focuses on research in the field of glycobiology, including manufacturing of carbohydrate-based delivery, which functions in targeted controlled drug delivery, immunology, and vaccine development. We are confident to provide our customers with professional, efficient, and reliable services to accelerate their scientific research.

Clinical Value of Carbohydrate-based Delivery Systems

Carbohydrates include monosaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides. They are very suitable as building blocks for delivery systems because of their massive molecular structure and ability to capture bioactive. They have attracted extensive attention in the transmission of bioactive substances. Natural and modified polysaccharides are not only promising carriers for nano- and micro-encapsulation of active food ingredients but are also widely used as efficient delivery systems in pharmaceutical and other industries.

Carbohydrate-mediated delivery has the advantage of site-specificity/cell specificity. For example, glycopolymers containing fucosamine and galactose were targeted at mouse leukemia L1210 cells and hepatocytes, respectively. These specific carbohydrate-based interactions can be used as gene or drug delivery carriers. The special interaction between carbohydrates and proteins also promotes the application of carbohydrate polymers as special enzyme inhibitors and in the treatment of infectious diseases. Carbohydrate-based delivery systems are now successfully used to deliver macromolecular drugs, antigens and potential therapeutic drug candidates.
