Applications of inorganic nanoparticles in diabetes
MetadataShow full item record
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is an endocrine and metabolic disease that has become a global emergency because of the rapid rise in morbidity and mortality rates worldwide. Since the direct delivery of biomolecules, such as insulin, to treat DM is inefficient and subjected to enzymatic degradation, nanotechnology and nanomedicine research have been devoted to the development of more effective methods to treat DM. Nanoparticles (NP), organic, inorganic, or hybrid, have served as potential carrier for safe and efficient transport for insulin. Additionally, several NP have biological activities that help ...
