The purpose of this study was to develop paclitaxel-loaded poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) nanoparticles coated with cationic SM5-1 single-chain antibody (scFv) containing a polylysine (SMFv-polylys). SM5-1 scFv (SMFv) is derived from SM5-1 monoclonal antibody, which binds to a 230 kDa membrane protein specifically expressed on melanoma, hepatocellular(More)
