Herein, new biodegradable star polymer-doxorubicin conjugates designed for passive tumor targeting were investigated, and their synthesis, physico-chemical characterization, drug release, biodegradation, biodistribution and in vivo anti-tumor efficacy are described. In the conjugates, the core formed by poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers was grafted with semitelechelic N-(2-hydroxypropyl)methacrylamide (HPMA) copolymers bearing doxorubicin (Dox) attached by hydrazone bonds, which enabled… CONTINUE READING
