Researcher interests: Development of an original nano-delivery platform for improving the oral absorption of poorly absorbed drugs Taher Nassar, Suha Attili-Qadry, Ayala Rohald; Natasha Nayarkin and Simon Benita Based on combined technologies the aim of this novel nanoplatform is to release and enhance the intestinal absorption of drugs by encapsulating them in nanocapsules that are embedded in microparticles. This nanoplatform was shown to bypass the liver where part of the drug dose is degraded prior to reaching the blood circulation following oral administration since the drug-loaded nanocapsules permeated through the intestinal mucosa and reached the blood circulation via the lymphatic system.
