Summary: A magnetically guided in vivo protein transduction is demonstrated using magnetic nanogel chaperone (MC) composed of iron oxide nanoparticles and a polysaccharide nanogel, a protein carrier inspired by “catch and release” mechanisms of MCs. In an oral cancer model, MC-delivered magnetically targeted saporin decreased tumor volume without significant body weight changes and no regrowth of tumor at 3 months after complete regression.
