The Nanosponge Technology
The Nanosponge Technology is created by UCSD professor Liangfang Zhang. Nanosponges are nanoparticle cores made of safe biocompatible material coated with cellular membranes. Cellics uses red blood cell (RBC) membrane coated nanosponges to meet unmet needs in a wide range of medical areas. These RBC-mimicking nanosponges can absorb RBC-targeting toxin molecules and divert them away from their cellular targets and thus remove the toxins associated with diseases. Nanosponges can be safely degraded in the liver after absorbing toxins.
