Abstract

The incidence of cancer is growing every year and covers all age groups, including the working population, which makes cancer socially significant. Existing methods of treatment, despite the effectiveness of individual compounds in relation to cancer cells, are not perfect due to a number of side effects associated with high doses that physicians are forced to administer when using treatment protocols. A particularly difficult issue is the creation of effective functional containers that would have the properties of targeting certain types of cells. The solution of this problem is currently relevant, which is reflected in the growth of publications on this subject in recent years. The most promising is the use of nanotechnology in the development of bioengineered therapeutics and containers for chemotherapeutic agents. In this review, we tried to assess the trends that exist in this area of research, as well as show the wide using of some commercially available formulations based on the nano-sized vehicles.
