Abstract

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. After several decades of technological developments, drug-delivery systems based on engineered nanoparticles have started to show great promises in cancer therapy. In this session, these capabilities of nanoparticles were introduced and different aspects of application of nanotechnology such as methods for encapsulating the release of variant classes of chemotherapeutic agents, in vitro internalization mechanisms and also in vivo fate after IV administration of these agents have been presented and discussed.
