Curcumin is a promising anti-cancer drug with limited aqueous solubility and decreased bioavailability. Milk Extracellular Vesicles (MEVs) used as a drug-delivery vehicle, were precipitated with Poly-Ethylene-Glycol (PEG) MW3000 from milk-whey. The yield of MEVs was 200.0 ± 0.85 mg/liter of whey. MEVs were spherical, double-membrane structures with a size range of 92 ± 30 
nm/Nanoparticle-Tracking-Analysis (NTA) and 87 ± 40 nm/Dynamic-Light Scattering (DLS). A 70% loading efficiency was achieved with a passive loading of curcumin. The mean size of mevcurcumin was 152 ± 49 nm/NTA and 113 ± 67 nm/DLS. A six-fold increase of cytotoxicity and a two fold increase in curcumin accumulation were observed by mev-curcumin over native curcumin in
MDA-MB231, a breast cancer cell-line. Thus, we report the development of a curcumin formulation with improved solubility, stability, and cellular permeability for breast-cancer treatments.
