|Abstract: ||Various exemplary embodiments provide protocell nanostructures and
methods for constructing and using the protocell nanostructures. In one
embodiment, the protocell nanostructures can include a core-shell
structure including a porous particle core surrounded by a shell of lipid
bilayer(s). The protocell can be internalized in a bioactive cell.
Various cargo components, for example, drugs, can be loaded in and
released from the porous particle core of the protocell(s) and then
delivered within the bioactive cell.
