On the other hand, cyclodextrins (CDs), such as [beta]CD, have been a useful tool to improve several chemical and pharmacological properties of non-polar compounds as terpenes (Brito et al., 2015; Oliveira et al., 2015).
Complexing the linoleic acid with cyclodextrins stabilizes the active ingredient trapped in the cavity and prevents odour formation by protecting it against oxidation.
Hastings is Pediatric Hematologist and Oncologist at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, Oakland, CA, and is also the first physician in the US to administer hydroxypropyl beta cyclodextrins to NPC patients: this was done on a compassionate use basis with CTD's product given intravenously.
Cyclodextrins (CDs) are cyclic ([alpha]-1, 4)-linked oligosaccharides with different numbers of [alpha]- D -glucopyranose units (Larsen et al., 1998).
A number of different microorganisms and plants produce certain enzymes called cyclodextrin glucosyltransferases, which degrade starch to cyclic products called cyclodextrins.
