Resealed Erythrocytes as a Carrier for Drug Targeting: A Review.
Ashok Kumar, Mansi Verma, K. K. Jha
Erythrocytes have been the most interesting carrier and have found to possess great potential in drug targeting. Resealed erythrocytes are gaining more popularity because of their ability to circulate throughout the body, biocompatibility, zero order release kinetics, reproducibility and ease of preparation. Most of the resealed erythrocytes used as drug carriers are rapidly taken up from blood by macrophages of reticuloendothelial system (RES), which is present in liver, lung, and spleen of the body. The aim of the present review is to focus on the various features, drug loading technology and biomedical application of resealed erythrocytes.
