- Identify your population of interest and provide a broad presentation of health disparities in this group: Female Minorities with Alzheimer’s – Rates of Alzheimer’s disease are substantially higher for African-Americans and Hispanics.
- Identify the specific problem to be addressed in this paper. Include rationale for why this is a priority issue: The major problem is the projected number of Alzheimer’s patients is expected to increase, this includes the widening disparities among women and minorities. Problems would include the cost (Discuss the cost burden of Alzheimer’s disease for federal/state governments and individuals/caregivers.), caregiver burden, and the health care system burden.
- Provide epidemiological data describing the population health disparities.
- Discuss current surveillance methods (identify if surveillance is local, national, and/or global).
In recent years, polymer–nanoparticle composite materials have attracted the attention of a number of researchers, due to their synergistic and hybrid properties derived from several components. Whether in solution or in bulk, these materials offer unique properties (mechanical, electrical, optical and thermal) . The field of polymer nanoparticles (PNP) is rapidly growing and playing a pivotal role in a broad spectrum of areas ranging from electronics to the Photonics, conducting materials to sensors, medicine to biotechnology, pollution control of environmental technology, and so forth, during the last decades [70, 71] . New and newer polymers have been trying to develop nanoparticles for their application as drug carriers. Craparo et al., 2008 described the preparation and physicochemical and in vitro biological characterization of nanoparticles based on PEGylated, acryloylated polyaspartamide polymers. Polymeric nanoparticles can be defined as colloidal particles ranging between 10 and 1000 nm in size and composed of either natural or artificial polymers . Polymeric nanoparticles composed of the drug dispersed in an amorphous form within a polymer matrix. PNPs are promising vehicles for drug delivery by easy manipulation to prepare carriers with the objective of delivering the drugs to specific targets; such an advantage modifies the drug safety . The compounds of interest are very beneficial for drug delivery applications because of their ability to control drug release and their protection properties . Currently, stimuli-sensitive nanoparticles which affected by the changes in pH, temperature and magnetic fields gained great concern [76-79]. The term “polymeric nanoparticle” encompasses nanospheres and nanocapsules. Nanospheres are defined as a polymeric matrix in which the drug is homogeneously dispersed (typically as a solid solution in polymer) and nanocapsules are described as a polymeric membrane that surrounds the drug in the matrix core (either as a solid solution or a solution in oil). Advantages of polymeric nanoparticles include: [81, >GET ANSWER
