This work has been supported by the Clive and Vera Ramaciotti Foundations establishment grant. The authors would like to thank Prof. Andrew McLachlan for his advice and guidance in interpreting the PK data. We would also like to thank the animal house’s manager and staff at Royal North Shore Hospital for their help and assistance during the experiments.
The scholarship for RS from the Egyptian government is acknowledged.
