Abstract: An innovative platform for targeted oral drug delivery is proposed based on the functionalization of drug/dye-loaded mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with a biodegradable nutraceutical (β-lactoglobulin). The attachment of the nutraceutical not only protects the drug/dye from leaching in acidic environment, but also effectively allows their release in desired basic sites (pH 7.4).
