Special Issue Information
Nanostructures for targeted drug delivery have attracted increasing attention owing to their ability to improve drug efficacy, enhance the bioavailability of active ingredients, control their release, or provide a possibility to target cells. However, nanomedicine is still at an early stage. Different forms of nanostructures have been used for active targeting based on biorecognition by particular cells beyond purely size-dependent biological and chemical interactions. The development of pharmaceutically active compounds (PhACs) modulating immune response is a challenge for modern medicine.
This volume will deal with many technical problems associated with the synthesis and composition of promising PhACs (including ethnomedical ones) and nano-assemblies containing them, molecular modeling of those systems and their interactions, their uptake into the target cell, efficient stimuli- triggered payload release, and their bioavailability, toxicity profiles, and immunomodulatory activity.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
