recent publication used mPEG-PLGA block copolymers to delivery theranostic agents to tumor cells.
The rapid development of nanotechnology holds great promise for revolutionizing the current landscape of tumor drug delivery. However, one of the biggest challenges is developing a simple nanocarrier platform to co-deliver various therapeutic agents. Here, a strategy for fabricating nanocarriers with many desirable features is demonstrated. The resulting nanoparticles achieve both high antitumor efficacy and effective inhibition of tumor metastasis with minimal side effects.
