Abstract: After the 2005 milestone in clinical application of paclitaxel¿albumin nanoparticles (NPs) for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer,[1] albumin NPs have been thoroughly investigated as effective delivery systems in nanomedicine.[2] This has led to increasing interest in the use of bovine serum albumin (BSA) as nanocarrier for applications in nanomedicine,[3a¿c] due to the possibility to coat lipophilicNPsand because it can be considered a crucial step before moving to its human version, human serum albumin (HSA).[3d¿f] The scientific community is seeking to exploit the intrinsic properties of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) to obtain medical breakthroughs in diagnosis and therapy.
