Cationic core-shell nanoparticles with carmustine contained within O⁶-benzylguanine shell for glioma therapy.

The application of carmustine (BCNU) for glioma treatment is limited due to its poor selectivity for tumor and tumor resistance caused by O⁶-methylguanine-DNA-methyl transferase (MGMT). To improve the efficacy of BCNU, we constructed chitosan surface-modified poly (lactide-co-glycolides) nanoparticles (PLGA/CS NPs) for targeting glioma, loading BCNU along… CONTINUE READING
