Abstract
We propose to develop a universal strategy to encapsulate protein-based therapeutics using our patented non-toxic, non-immunogenic, water soluble, nanometer size capsules. These nanocapsules have a functionalized surface rendering them "unseen" by the normal immunogenic scavenging response of the body. In addition, the nanoencapsulated proteins not only exhibit superior shelf stability, but are also capable of withstanding various (harsh) formulation conditions without loss of protein activity.
