Background: Molecular imaging of cancer cells using effective drug targeting systems are most interested research area in recent years. Albumin protein is a soluble and most abundant protein in circulatory system. It has a ligand-binding function and acts as a transport protein. Researchers are interested in developing albumin based nanostructured specific anti-tumor drugs in cancer therapy. Pancreatic cancer treatment or drug design for targeted pancreatic cancer cell has great importance due to it has a high mortality rate comparing other cancer types.
