Targeted Cancer Therapy: pH-Switch Nanoprecipitation of Polymeric Nanoparticles for Multimodal Cancer Targeting and Intracellular Triggered Delivery of Doxorubicin

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateScientificpeer-review


Targeted theranostic nanoparticles with dual pH and magnetic responsive properties for intracellular delivery are described by B. Herranz-Blanco, H. A. Santos, and co-workers on page 1904. Using a pH-switch nanoprecipitation method in organic-free solvents, a polymeric-drug conjugate solid nanoparticle containing encapsulated superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and decorated with a tumor homing peptide, iRGD, are targeted to endothelial and metastatic cancer cells.
