The αvβ3 integrin is a potential pharmacological target for anti-angiogenic therapy. A recent report describes the use of αvβ3-targeted nanoparticles to deliver a gene to tumour vasculature selectively. This resulted in substantial tumour regression in several experimental mouse tumour models. Hence, this approach has great potential for the treatment of human cancer.
