A new delivery system was developed for the targeted treatment of solid tumors. The nano vesicles are derived from mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) plasma membrane, which is specifically recognized by the tumor microenvironment and tumor cells. In vitro and in vivo assays were conducted on a prostate cancer model to reassure that specificity and to evaluate the feasibility of the system to inhibit tumor growth.
