[OUTSIDE FRONT COVER] Enhancing pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) therapy with targeted carbon nano-onion (CNO)-mediated delivery of gemcitabine (GEM)-derived prodrugs


Carbon nano-onions (CNOs) are featured on this cover, illustrating a breakthrough in advanced materials for pancreatic cancer treatment. Leveraging colloid and interface science, CNOs demonstrate precise targeting and enhanced efficacy in drug delivery, offering improved therapeutic outcomes with reduced toxicity, representing a significant advancement in nanotechnology-based cancer therapies.
