Access from EThOS:
Polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers represent a novel type of polymer with numerous pharmaceutical applications and have been en investigated as transcellular carriers. However, the mechanisms of cellular uptake and intracellular processing of dendrimers are not fully understood. In this study the mechanism of cellular uptake of PAMAM dendrimer and surface-modified PAMAM dendrimers was investigated in order to optimise dendrimers as potential drug carriers.
