The fabrication and characterization of a dual receptor targeted system (DRTS) are described. It is demonstrated that DRTS is more efficient at delivering gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) to ovarian cancer cells expressing epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and folate receptor (FR) than their corresponding single-receptor-targeting systems (SRTS).
