Abstract
NANOFOL proposes to develop a new diagnostic/therapy approach using
folate based nanobiodevices (FBN) able to provide a new type of cost efficient treatment for chronic inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis with low side effects that will constitute a more advantageous solution than current therapies. These drug delivery devices are primariliy based on functionalized proteines.
