原始语种摘要: Endometriosis is difficult to treat since the side effects of the current therapeutic method and the high recurrence rate; thus, newer and safer therapeutic approaches are urgently needed. This work investigates the enhanced permeability and retention effect of CdTe quantum dots (QDs) and hollow gold nanospheres (HAuNS) in endometriosis to increase the delivery of HAuNS into lesion cells. The surface of HAuNS is successfully conjugated with a TNYL peptide that has specific affinity for the EphB4 receptor, which is a member of the Eph family of receptor tyrosine kinases. It is found that the EphB4 receptor is overexpressed in endometriosis lesions. The data indicate that both QDs and HAuNS can efficiently accumulate in endometriotic lesions through permeable vessels and the TNYL‐conjugated...
