Multi-functional nanovectors based on exosomes from cancer cell culture supernatants in vitro has been successfully utilized for tumor-specific targeting and immune escape. However, the labor-intensive purification procedures for rich-dose and high-purity homogeneous exosomes without using targeting ligands are still a challenging task. Herein, we developed a nanovector Exo-PMA/[email protected] through cloaked by urinary exosome membrane as a chemo/chemodynamic theranostic nano-platform for targeted homologous prostate cancer therapy which pertain to the abrogation of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) and its downstream AKT/NF-kB/IkB signaling instead of ERK signaling cascades.
