A novel amphiphilic biodegradable poly(aspartic acid (AA)-co-lactic acid (LA))/DPPE co-polymer is synthesized and used to prepare doxorubicin (DOX)-loaded nanoparticles for tumor therapy. These nanoparticles are prepared by double emulsion method and exhibit pH-responsive drug release profiles. It is of great interest that these poly(AA-co-LA)/DPPE nanoparticles can efficiently deliver a chemotherapy drug DOX into the nuclei specifically within tumor cells and show dose- and time-dependent cytotoxicity.
