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

Metal-organic frameworks revolutionise pharmaceuticals

Improving pharmaceutical and biomedical applications through metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)

By | Pharmaceuticals | No Comments
Starting with the first publication about metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) in 1999, MOFs have seen a rapid growth in the last years and have proven to be of great interest to the pharmaceutical industry. MOFs can improve drug delivery, stabilize enzymes or improve osseointegration of implants. Discover the opportunities MOFs offer for pharmaceutical applications. Read More
