|Abstract:||Amphiphilic poly(ε-caprolactone)-b-poly(propargyl methacrylate-click- mercaptosuccinic acid-co-poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate) (PCL-b-P(PMA-click-MSA-co-PEGMA)) were synthesized by a combination of ring-opening polymerization, reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization, and thiol-yne "click" reaction. The hydrophobic PCL core can be used to load superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs), while the pendant dicarboxylic groups in the hydrophilic shell are used to coordinate cisplatin. These SPIONs-loaded, cisplatin-conjugated polymeric nanoparticles (Pt-Fe-PNs) are superparamagnetic at room temperature and are mucoadhesive. Release of cisplatin from Pt-Fe-PNs in artificial urine at 37 °C was characterized by an initial burst release with a release of ∼30% of the cisplatin in the first 4 h followed by a slow sustained release over 4 days. The cisplatin release can be further enhanced by increasing the temperature. These Pt-Fe-PNs can effectively induce cytotoxicity against UMUC3 bladder cancer cells with IC50 of 32.3 μM. These results indicate that Pt-Fe-PNs is potentially a promising cisplatin delivery vehicle which can be combined with SPIONs-induced hyperthermia for bladder cancer therapy. © 2012 American Chemical Society.|
