Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) have been proposed as an alternative colloidal drug-delivery system for water-soluble drugs. The aim of this study was to prepare and characterise physiochemically and biologically tamoxifen-loaded SLNs to evaluate their effectiveness as a drug-delivery system to treat breast cancers.
