polymeric systems delivery flavonoidsCongratulations to our PhD student Gianni Pecorini for his publication entitled "Polymeric Systems for the Controlled Release of Flavonoids" in Pharmaceutics. In this article the different classes of flavonoids are described together with the polymers most commonly employed for drug delivery applications. Representative drug delivery systems are discussed, highlighting the most common techniques for their preparation. The flavonoids investigated for polymer system encapsulation are then presented with their main source of extraction and biological properties.

Relevant literature on their employment in this context is reviewed in relationship to the targeted pharmacological and biomedical applications. Flavonoids are natural compounds that are attracting great interest in the biomedical field thanks to the wide spectrum of their biological properties. Their employment as anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and antidiabetic drugs, as well as for many other pharmacological applications, is extensively investigated. One of the most successful ways to increase their therapeutic efficacy is to encapsulate them into a polymeric matrix in order to control their concentration in the physiological fluids for a prolonged time.
