Disclosed are biomimetic proteolipid nanovesicles that possess remarkable properties for targeting compounds of interest to particular mammalian cell and tissue types. In particular embodiments, drug delivery vehicles are provided composed of synthetic phospholipids and cholesterol, enriched of leukocyte membranes, and surrounding an aqueous core. These nanovesicles are able to both avoid the immune system, thanks to the presence on their surface of self-tolerance proteins, as CD-45, CD-47, and MHC-1, and target inflamed endothelium, thereby diffusing in the tumor microenvironment. These properties make the composition highly suited for targeted drug delivery to mammalian tumor cells in vitro and in situ.

Abstract

Disclosed are biomimetic proteolipid nanovesicles that possess remarkable properties for targeting compounds of interest to particular mammalian cell and tissue types. In particular embodiments, drug delivery vehicles are provided composed of synthetic phospholipids and cholesterol, enriched of leukocyte membranes, and surrounding an aqueous core. These nanovesicles are able to both avoid the immune system, thanks to the presence on their surface of self-tolerance proteins, as CD-45, CD-47, and MHC-1, and target inflamed endothelium, thereby diffusing in the tumor microenvironment. These properties make the composition highly suited for targeted drug delivery to mammalian tumor cells in vitro and in situ.
