Dual action nanocarrier combining CXCR4 antagonist and polyplex gene delivery for treatment of metastatic cancer and other diseases
Novel bio-reducible polymer compositions which combine the ability to act as a CXCR4 antagonist and simultaneously provide enhanced gene delivery through the formation of inert nanocarrier polyplexes have been developed. As would be expected for biodegradable polymers, the cytotoxicity of these nanocarrier compositions are very low with measured IC...
