In the present research, piroxicam entrapped core-shell lipid-polymer hybrid nanocarriers were developed and also evaluated in terms of nanoparticle features and cell-based in vitro efficacy on prostate cancer cells. Box-Behnken optimization approach was implemented to evaluate the impact of the input variables, namely phospholipid/PLGA ratio, total lipids/lecithin molar ratio, and piroxicam concentration, on two output variables: particle size and entrapment efficiency. Surface charge, size distribution, morphological structure of particles, drug release profiles, presence of outer lipid shell, thermal profile and possible interactions and storage stability of core-shell nanocarriers of piroxicam were studied as particle features.
