Indirubin can be applied as an anti-cancer drug for inhibition of brain tumors. However, its performance is reduced due to hydrophobicity. In this study, we synthesized cationic human serum albumin (CHSA) nanoparticle by a new hybrid approach (with chemical and mechanical base) for improvement the surface chemistry of albumin and the amount of indirubin loaded CHSA nanoparticle. In this study, the generated mechanical force from a high-pressure homogenizer (HPH) was used to make nanoparticles with a certain size with narrow polydispersity. The results indicated that the size of indirubin loaded CHSA nanoparticles were 130 nm and their zeta potential were +9. Besides, the encapsulation efficiency and drug loading capacity were found to be 85% and 5.8 %, respectively. To the best to our knowledge, this is the first time that indirubin has been used in albumin nanoparticles. In this study, indirubin loaded CHSA nanoparticles was shown can be a potential candidate for drug delivery in the treatment of glioblastoma. Moreover, the cationized form allows the chemical agent to be transmitted to the brain.
