Tom Anchordoquy's Biography



Tom Anchordoquy, Professor, University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Dr. Anchordoquy received his PhD at the University of California, Davis in 1989 for his work on stabilizing liposomes during freezing and drying. His laboratory at the University of Colorado School of Pharmacy initially studied the lyophilization of lipid/DNA complexes, but his more recent work has been focused on utilizing nanoparticles for drug delivery, including exosomes.

Many pharmaceuticals must be administered intravenously due to their poor oral bioavailability.  In addition to issues associated with sterility and inconvenience, the cost of repeated infusion over a six-week course of therapy costs the healthcare system tens of billions of dollars per year.  Attempts to improve oral bioavailability have traditionally focused on enhancing drug solubility and membrane permeability, and the use of synthetic nanoparticles has also been investigated.  As an alternative strategy, some reports have clearly demonstrated that exosomes from cow milk are absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract in humans, and could potentially be used for oral delivery of drugs that are traditionally administered intravenously.  Our results demonstrate that milk exosomes are absorbed from the gut as intact particles that can be modified with ligands to promote retention in target tissues.
