Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cancer is a leading cause of death, killing millions of people worldwide each year. The fibrous connective tissue in tumor tissues is abundant, and the internal pressure of tumors is large, so it is often necessary to use large doses of drugs in the whole body to achieve the effective concentration of anti-tumor drugs in the tumor microenvironment; however, this leads to serious adverse reactions. Nanomaterials have been extensively employed in anti-tumor therapy in recent years due to their good biocompatibility, long systemic circulation time, good biosafety and tumor-targeting abilities. Drug discovery and development efforts have produced highly effective chemotherapeutic drug molecules for the treatment of various cancers. The targeted delivery of drugs via functional nanomedicine selectively kills tumor cells without harming normal cells. This Special Issue of the journal Pharmaceuticals is devoted to the presentation of the latest research in this area.
