  • Patent number: 11559477
    Abstract: A preparation method and use of an artificial exosome complex are provided. Raw materials for preparing the artificial exosome complex include linear polyethyleneimine (PEI) and hyaluronic acid (HA). The linear PEI can be obtained through the HA-PEI preparation process of the present disclosure, and most PEI is branched currently. According to the HA-PEI preparation method, HA-PEI with a specific molecular weight can be quantitatively prepared. The preparation process involves controllable operation steps, and thus can be used for large-scale industrial production. The prepared HA-PEI can promote the absorption of an encapsulated active substance by deep skin cells through the ligand activity of HA and the membrane permeability of linear PEI.
