A triple targeting scheme for nanodrug delivery simultaneously to cancer and angiogenesis is reported. This synergized multitarget concept culminates in elevated uptake of nanoparticles by cancer and angiogenic cells with amplified proficiency. The active targeted silica-based nanoformulation gains entry only into cancer and pathoangiogenic cells, sparing normal cells, whereas nontargeted nanoformulation shows nonspecific accumulation in both cancer and normal cells leading to normal cell damage.
