The encapsulation of S-nitrosoglutathione into polymeric nanoparticles substantially improves NO stability in aqueous media without affecting the efficacy of intracellular delivery. The combination of nano-NO delivery and chemotherapy has been found to enhance antitumour activity of chemotherapeutics, as demonstrated using preliminary in vitro experiments with neuroblastoma cells.
