An anionic polymerization technique is used to prepare docetaxel (DTX)-loaded, zoledronic acid (ZOL)-conjugated polyethylene glycol (PEG)ylated polybutyl cyanoacrylate (PBCA) nanoparticles (NPs). The NPs show enhanced cytotoxicity due to higher uptake following ZOL-mediated endocytosis. PBCA-PEG-ZOL NP distribution in tumor infected bone is high compared to the normal bone. Thus, ZOL-conjugated NPs provide efficient and targeted delivery of DTX, with synergistic effects.
