In this field, drug delivery and in vivo imaging show great promises through the use of nanoparticulate systems as nanocarriers for the protection and targeting of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and/or molecular contrast agents. Among a wide variety of nanocargos, Lipid NanoParticles (LNP) present numerous advantages over other formulations. These nanocarriers are biocompatible, biodegradable, allow controlled release and can easily be produced by versatile and up-scalable processes. In this work, we investigated the physicochemistry of LNP to propose optimised formulations for API and/or dye encapsulation. The size will be critical when considering biological interactions [1] and targeting (EPR effect) [2], but may also affect release profiles [3]. LNP core composition should also impact the release properties [4]. Meanwhile, the size distribution will affect LNP physical stability: the more monodisperse the dispersion, the highest the physical stability [5]. Experimental design: An experimental design was used to model the physicochemical behaviour of the LNP system. Its definition is summarized in Fig. 2. To conclude, we designed and characterised ready made lipid nanoparticles. Being able to incorporate a wide range of lipophilic molecules, LNP could be foreseen as a nanoplatform for imaging and drug delivery purposes through fluorophore and/or API encapsulation. The large flexibility of LNP formulation should allow their characteristics to be tuned to obtain optimised encapsulation and/or release properties. Figure 2 : Variables defining the experimental design approach The model was constructed on a quadratic design with main effects. The relevance of the diameter model is illustrated in Fig. 3. The model diameter is thus reliable for LNP of sizes ranging from 20 to 120nm. The model regression coefficients are higher than 0.85 (R²=0.90 / R²adjusted = 0.88).

LNP Formulation 1.Introduction 5. Conclusion & Perspectives Different lipophilic molecules can be encapsulated in LNP. Some fluorophores (ICG, Nile Red, DiD, DiR, DiL…) and some therapeutics (Paclitaxel, mTHPC, mTHPP…) have already been successfully encapsulated for both imaging and drug delivery purposes (Fig. 8).

Fluorophore and/or API encapsulation4. Toxicity LNP toxicity has been assessed both in vitro and in vivo, with promising results. Murine fibroblasts (NIH-3T3 cell line) present a viability > 95% after 24h incubation in the presence of high LNP doses (1mg/mL) (Fig. 9). Meanwhile, high LNP doses (150 mg/kg) were well tolerated after in vivo systemic injection in rat (100% survival after 5 weeks, n=6). Optimisation The model was then used to propose formulations, giving monodisperse populations of specific sizes. Standard formulations with different sizes (30, 50, 100, 120 nm) were isolated to study the effect of particle size on biological interactions, biodistribution and encapsulation/release properties (Fig. 4). Figure 4 : Standard formulations FXX: physicochemical properties Stability: All the sizes and compositions were shown to be stable at all temperatures (4°C, Troom and 40°C) for more than 6 months (see 40°C: Fig. 6). Increasing wax content in LNP core leads to decrease in particle diameter (Fig. 6).
