THE BREATHING HEART

1. Nanoparticle production
Biocompatible and biodegradable nanoparticles can self-assemble and encapsulate drugs
2. Inhalation
Nanoparticles are transformed into an inhalable coarser dry powder that can reach the airways.
3. Crossing the pulmonary barrier
Nanoparticles can cross the alveolar-capillary barrier, rapidly reaching the heart
4. One target: the heart
The heart specificity is ensured thanks to chemical and magnetic guidance
