Abstract

Nanotechnology has been utilized recently in medicine for the development of Drug Delivery Systems able to alter the kinetic profile of drug release that is very important in the administration of therapies for long periods as chemotherapy treatments, preventing damages to the normal surrounding tissue. This work aims to test new types of engineered green nanocarriers produced by an environmentalfriendly procedure for epithelial tumors treatment. Epithelial cancer is the largest single cause of death in both men and women, claiming over 6 million lives each year worldwide. For this reason, recently nanotechnology is attracting great interest in the search for new cancer therapies.
