Synthesis of carrier encapsulated phytochemical formulations and evaluation of their efficacy in animal models
In the present scenario of cancer drug resistance, phytochemicals are potential therapeutic options as chemotherapeutics as well as chemosensitizers. However, the therapeutic outcome of most of the phytochemicals is hindered by their hydrophobicity and poor bioavailability, which lead to their reduced absorption in vivo. Encapsulation of these molecules in rationally designed drug delivery carriers offer several pharmacological benefits. My research focuses on synthesizing drug delivery carriers for various phytochemical formulations and studying their efficacy in various animal models.
