Polysaccharides are widely used as carriers in the field of drug delivery. We present a methodology to obtain water soluble drug-conjugates based on scleroglucan. Selective C-6 halogenation gives access to C-6 esters; conjugates between methotrexate and scleroglucan are described, potentially useful for antitumour therapy or in rheumatoid arthritis treatment.

Abstract

Polysaccharides are widely used as carriers in the field of drug delivery. We present a methodology to obtain water soluble drug-conjugates based on scleroglucan. Selective C-6 halogenation gives access to C-6 esters; conjugates between methotrexate and scleroglucan are described, potentially useful for antitumour therapy or in rheumatoid arthritis treatment.
