To evaluate the usefulness of hematoporphyrin (HP)-modification of the surface of doxorubicin (DOX)-loaded bovine serum albumin (BSA) nanoparticles (NPs) in the liver cancer-selective delivery of DOX. HP-modified NPs (HP-NPs) were prepared by conjugation of amino groups on the surface of NPs with HP, a ligand for low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptors on(More)

In the present study, the efficacy of Val-SN-38 was further investigated both in vitro and in vivo. It was found that the in vitro cytotoxic(More)
