Researchers with Kaohsiung Medical University and National Sun Yat-Sen University in Taiwan published a paper titled “Distinct CPT-induced deaths in lung cancer cells caused by clathrin-mediated internalization of CP micelles” in the February 2016 issue of Nanoscale. In their research, the scientists used Spectrum Labs’ dialysis tubing to prepare their micelles.

Abstract: We previously synthesized a chondroitin sulfate-graft-poly(ε-caprolactone) copolymer (H-CP) with a high content of poly(ε-caprolactone) (18.7 mol%), which self-assembled in water into a rod-like micelle to encapsulate hydrophobic camptothecin (CPT) in the core (micelle/CPT) for tumor-targeted drug delivery.
