Magnetic microrobots with folate targeting for drug delivery

Researchers introduced folic acid (FA) into a microrobot to promote specific cancer cell targeting ability and drug ingestion by cells. The selective overexpression of the FA on the surface of cancer cells provides FA the ability to promote the uptake of drugs by cancer cells through receptor-ligand-mediated endocytosis.
