The present invention concerns nanoparticles, compositions comprising the nanoparticles, methods for their production, and methods of using the nanoparticles for the delivery of biologically active agents (e.g., antibiotics or other drugs) to human or non-human subjects. In one embodiment, the nanoparticle is a “surfactant-free” nanoparticle in which the surfactant moiety is covalently attached to the backbone of the polymer.
