Abstract:
We have developed a polymeric targeted nanoparticle-polypeptide conjugates that shows cell binding speficity and stealth properties. The targeted naoparticles binds and are taken up efficiently by Her2 expressing breast cancer cells. These nanoparticles represent a powerfull tool for breast cancer treatment.
