Engineering Smart Injectable Drug Delivery Theranostics for Uterine Fibroids · January 1, 2019 - December 31, 2019 Co-Principal Investigator · Duke Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) · $56,131.00 Friederike Jayes, DVM, PhD, and Darlene K. Taylor, PhD have been awarded a Duke-NCCU collaborative award for 2019. The research award will advance studies to deliver drugs via LiquoGelâ„¢ to potentially soften and treat uterine fibroid tumors. More than seven out of ten women have fibroids by age 50. The disease burden is larger for black women as they have more fibroids earlier in life when many still desire to have children. The targeted technology could transform uterine fibroid therapy for women suffering from this disease who want to keep their uterus..
