Nanosoft Polymers’s functional lipid has been used to develop HER2 targeted liposomes for cancer therapy

HER2 is a biomarker of human breast cancer has become an important validated therapeutic target in breast cancer. Recently, a research published in Theranostics using OBOC to screen  a library of novel HER2 targeting peptides. These targeting peptides were conjugated to DSPE-PEG-Maleimide (Nanosoft Polymers) to develop HER2 targeted liposomes for doxorubicin delivery to improve the cancer therapy and diagnosis.  Geng L. et al.
