A large number of antitumor drug delivery carriers based on passive targeting and/or active targeting have been developed. However, encapsulation of antitumor drugs into these drug carriers is often complicated, and antitumor activities of these targeting systems are not satisfactory. In the present study, we first prepared heptakis-6-folic acid(More)
We reported that per-6-folic acid (FA)-appended β-cyclodextrin (β-CyD) possessing two caproic acids between FA and a β-CyD molecule as a spacer (Fol-c2-β-CyD) could be useful as a promising antitumor drug carrier. However, the effects of the cavity size and the spacer length on the carrier ability are not still known. In this study, we designed and(More)
