The 5-FU@FACS-Mn:ZnS composite reported to induce thymidine synthase (TS) overexpression induced anti-proliferative properties in these organs as and cancer cell resistance. To improve its therapeutic effi- compared to the free 5-FU drug. Unlike the 5-FU@FACS- cacy and selective targeting, here we developed a targeted Mn:ZnS treated groups which showed some specific mor- delivery system mediated by the active ligand-folate phological changes such as cell shrinkage without obvious receptor chemistry to deliver the 5-FU drug selectively presence of adipocytes, the excised section of the tumor in into the tumor microenvironment.
