Copolymers based on N-(2-hydroxypropyl)methacrylamide (HPMA) having cholesterol side groups self-assemble into ellipsoidal nanoparticles (NPs) in aqueous solutions [1,2]. The core and the shell are formed by cholesterol and by HPMA, respectively. They have been proposed as drug carriers. However, little is known on their behavior in human blood environment.
We use synchrotron small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) to investigate HPMA copolymers in an aqueous solution of human serum albumin(HSA), which is very abundant in human blood, to investigate the influence of HSA on the NPs' structure. The length of the NPs is reduced even if very small amounts of HSA are present. We speculate that HSA binds to cholesterol groups and removes them from the NPs.
