Abstract

Selective disposition of nanocarriers into target tissue is an essential issue in drug delivery. Critical size of nanocarriers (∼150 nm) discriminating the permeability into normal and tumor tissues was determined by the use of size-tunable, polyion complex hollow vesicles (PICsome) as a ruler.
