The anti-apoptotic defense mechanism of cancer cells poses a major hurdle which makes chemotherapy less effective. Combinatorial delivery of drugs and siRNAs targeting anti-apoptotic proteins is a vital means for improving therapeutic effects. The present study aims at designing a suitable carrier which can effectively co-deliver doxorubicin and plk1 siRNA to tumor cells. Low molecular weight poly(styrene-alt-maleic anhydride) was chemically modified via a click reaction to obtain a cationic… Expand
