 DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Iron oxide nanoparticles are novel agents for the delivery of high concentrations of therapeutics to areas with leaky blood vessels. The focus of this initial proposal is the nanoparticle mediated delivery of a novel therapeutic agent, Tris DBA Palladium for the prevention and treatment of genetically diverse melanoma. We propose to assess the efficacy of IGF-1 targeted nanoparticles containing Tris DBA Palladium to mice carrying genetically diver...
