Special Issue Information
Increasing the localization of drugs to hematologic or solid tumor cancer cells by targeted drug delivery holds great promise to improve the treatment of cancer with conventional and nonconventional drugs. Given the broad range of drug types, cancers, and tumor heterogeneities, the successful clinical application of targeted drug delivery will continue to require the preclinical development of multiple drug delivery approaches for selection and further clinical development.
This Special Issue seeks to highlight original research articles and reviews on the preclinical development of targeted drug delivery approaches to improve the pharmacotherapy of cancer with conventional and nonconventional drugs. Research areas include any approaches that improve the treatment of preclinical cancer models with small-molecule (<900 Da) or macromolecule drugs (e.g., biomolecules) (e.g., increase potency and/or efficacy, decrease toxicity) by increasing the localization to the site of action in hematologic cancer cells or solid tumor/tumor-associated cells in primary and/or secondary tumors.
