Zwitterionic Nanocages Overcome the Efficacy Loss of Biologic Drugs

Researchers from Shaoyi Jiang's (BioE adjunct) lab demonstrate a zwitterionic polycarboxybetaine nanocage that can physically encase proteins while keeping their structure intact. This approach addresses the problem posed by efficacy loss of biotherapeutics due to undesirable immune response.
