Targeted delivery of drug-loaded nanoparticles (NPs) to the colorectal region shows potential for improving the efficacy of chemotherapies for colorectal cancer by raising local drug concentrations at the tumour site and avoiding widespread systemic distribution following intravenous injection.
The aim of our study was to develop a colon-targeted.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
