Injectable and pH-Responsive Silk Nanofiber Hydrogels for Sustained Anticancer Drug Delivery.

Abstract

Silk is useful as a drug carrier due to its biocompatibility, tunable degradation, and outstanding capacity in maintaining the function of drugs. Injectable silk hydrogels could deliver doxorubicin (DOX) for localized chemotherapy for breast cancer. To improve hydrogel properties, thixotropic silk nanofiber hydrogels in an all-aqueous solution were prepared… (More)
