A new strategy to exploit galectin presence to target matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) is presented. A bifunctional conjugate with lactose and an inhibitor for MMPs is able to bind MMP and Gal-3 simultaneously. This compound might allow the lectin to attract the MMP inhibitor to the tumour site and to block protumoural activities of the lectin at the same time. Copyright © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
