AbstractThe in vitro anticancer activity of copper cetyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (Cu-CTAB)-loaded cyclodextrin nanoparticles on Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC), colon cancer cells (HCT 116), liver cancer cells (HepG-2), breast cancer cells (MCF-7), and cervix cancer cells (Hela) was investigated using MTT due assay. Cyclodextrin nanoparticles loaded with Cu-CTAB exerted in vitro anticancer activity against the previous human cancer cell lines comparable to the activity of free non-entrapped in nanoparticles macro-particle Cu-CTAB. The nano analog was synthesized by physical loading using grinding with ball mill. The ratio between Cu-CTAB and cyclodextrin oligosaccharide was 1 Cu-CTAB: 3 cyclodextrin. The particle size of the nano derivative was determined using the transmitted electron microscope (TEM). © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
