The future of drug delivery – targeted, timed and non-toxic release of APIs using MOFs

By | Pharmaceuticals | No Comments
How a drug — more precisely an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) — is taken up by the body and delivered to the site of disease, has a tremendous effect on the efficacy of the API itself. A large amount of research has been done on applying metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as drug delivery agents. We take a look into what good drug delivery agents do and why metal-organic frameworks are well suited for this job. Read More

How toxic are MOFs?

By | Pharmaceuticals | No Comments
The current developments around the application of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications are forcing us to have a closer look at how harmful they are. In this post, we have a look at the toxicity of MOFs, the current status quo of research, and what’s coming. Read More
