Ethyl cellulose (EC) is widely used in the pharmaceutical field as a polymeric excipient to fabricate sustained-release drug delivery systems. To develop a controlled release carrier exploiting the unique characteristic acidic environment of the target tumor site, this study examined the use of EC and lecithin (LC) as a nanoparticulated system. Paclitaxel and dihydroartemisinin were used as model drug combinations. The optimized formulated nanoparticles (NPs) of EC (EC NPs) and EC/LC (EC/LC NPs) were spherical and approximately 130 nm in diameter as determined by dynamic light scattering and electron microscopy analyses. The in vitro drug release from EC/LC NPs exhibited a pH-dependen...
