Pharmaceutical applications for catanionic mixtures
2007 (English)In: Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology (JPP), ISSN 0022-3573, Vol. 59, no 10, 1319-1334 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
Mixtures of oppositely charged surfactants, so called catanionic mixtures, are a growing area of research. These mixtures have been shown to form several different types of surfactant aggregates, such as micelles of various forms and sizes, and lamellar structures, such as vesicles. In this review, a short introduction to the field of catanionic mixtures is presented and the pharmaceutical possibilities offered by such mixtures are reviewed. There are several interesting ideas on how to apply catanionic mixtures to improve the delivery of, for example, drug compounds and DNA, or for HIV treatment.
