Chemotherapy is an important modality in cancer treatment. The major challenges of recent works are to improve drug loading, increase selectivity to target cells, and control the precise release of drugs. In the present study, we devised a smart drug carrier, an aptamer/hairpin DNA-gold nanoparticle (apt/hp-Au NP) conjugate for targeted delivery of drugs.(More)
Tumor therapy requires multi-functional treatment strategies with specific targeting of therapeutics to reduce general toxicity and increase efficacy. In this study we fabricated and functionally tested aptamer-conjugated and doxorubicin (DOX)-loaded acoustic droplets comprising cores of liquid perfluoropentane compound and lipid-based shell materials.(More)
