Iranian Nanocarrier

Researchers in Iran succeeded in producing hesperetin nanocarrier using biochemical compounds with anti-oxidant properties where hesperetin is a nutritive compound acting as anti-cancer agent and reduces blood pressure.

The researchers have made it possible by using ultrasound waves through mechanical method.

Dr. Milad Fathi, one of the researchers, reported that the project was carried out in a way that the nutritive nanomaterials were completely eatable. It also took care that the method was applicable at industrial scale. It is claimed that the results of the research can be extended  for protection and controlled release of sensitive drugs.

The details of the research have been published recently in the 6th Issue of Food and Bioprocess Technology.
