Intracellular pH-activated PEG-b-PDPA wormlike micelles for hydrophobic drug delivery

Author affiliations

Abstract

Wormlike micelles with intracellular pH-activating properties were developed. The micelles remained in a “silent” state at physiological pH conditions (i.e. pH 7.4), but were activated in the acidic microenvironment of endocytic vesicles. The wormlike micelles could be employed as nanovectors for the intracellular delivery of hydrophobic drugs for cancer therapy.
