Recent advancements in nanotechnology have provided a promising approach in targeted cancer therapy. Studies have shown that certain receptors like transferrin and folate receptors are up-regulated in breast cancer.
AimsThe aim of this study was to fabricate niosome formulations conjugated with transferrin and folic acid as cancer.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
