Synthesis of octadecylamine-retinoic acid conjugate for enhanced cytotoxic effects of 5-FU using LDL targeted nanostructured lipid carriers.


The aim of the present study was to reduce 5-FU side effects by targeted nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) to LDL receptors that are over expressed in colorectal carcinoma and also use of a new synthesized conjugate of retinoic acid as a cytotoxic agent. Fatty acyl amide derivative of retinoic acid was synthesized by its conjugation to octadecylamine… (More)
