  • Publication number: 20210121263
    Abstract: The inventions provided herein relate to tissue markers and uses thereof, e.g., to mark a target tissue site (e.g., a biopsy site in a breast tissue) or to produce a cell scaffold. The tissue markers described herein are designed to be resistant to fast migration (e.g., immediate migration after implantation through a needle track) and slow migration (e.g., over an extended period of time) upon implantation at a target tissue site (e.g., a biopsy site in a breast tissue), without using an adhesive. Additionally or alternatively, the tissue markers described herein can be readily detectable by at least one imaging modality, e.g., but not limited to magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray imaging, ultrasound imaging, or a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 10098967
    Abstract: Disclosed are conjugates of hydrophobic drugs linked to protected or unprotected amino acids or peptides. The disclosed conjugates are amphiphilic and can self assemble into nantubes. Nanotubes comprising the conjugates are also described and can have high loading of the drug and protect it from degradation or elimination. The nanotubes are well suited to deliver hydrophobic and unstable drugs to individuals.
