Correction for ‘A highly selective dual-therapeutic nanosystem for simultaneous anticancer and antiangiogenesis therapy’ by Lizhen He et al., J. Mater. Chem. B, 2017, 5, 8228–8237, DOI: 10.1039/C7TB02163A.


The authors regret that incorrect images were used in Fig. 1d and h (electron microscopic images and N 1s spectrum of RGD@Se-MSNs) and Fig. 7c (H&E staining images of major organs from HepG-2 xenograft nude mice) in the original version of the manuscript. The corrected Fig. 1 and 7 are shown below. The captions remain the same.

Fig. 1 Rational design (a), delivery (b) and action mechanisms (c) of RGD@Se-MSNs nanosystem for dual targeting and therapy of tumor growth and angiogenesis. (d) SEM and TEM micrographs of RGD@Se-MSNs. (e) N2 adsorption–desorption isotherm of MSNs and RGD@Se-MSNs. XPS analysis (f), O 1s (g) and N 1s (h) spectra of SeC, MSNs and RGD@Se-MSNs.

Fig. 7 (a) Selenium content in plasma versus time after intravenous injection of free SeC and RGD@Se-MSNs. (b) Biodistribution of Se in tumor tissue and main organs of the xenograft nude mice treated with 1 mg kg−1 RGD@Se-MSNs for 14 days. (c) H&E staining of major organs from HepG-2 xenograft nude mice treated with 1 mg kg−1 (calculated as Se) of RGD@Se-MSNs for 14 days.
