Special Issue in Cancers: Cancer Organoids in Basic Science and Translational Medicine
Nanomedicine is a growing arena of exciting discoveries with the promise to cure different deadly pathologies. In particular, the drug delivery field has been attracted many attentions from the first discovery of the enhanced permeability effect in tumor in the early 80’s. From passive to active targeting strategies have been applied to better tailored Drug Delivery Systems for each pathology. Although these efforts, only a few are of success such as liposomal doxorubicin and albumin paclitaxel. Among possible explanations of these low rate of success are the type of animal models utilized, no patient stratifications based on the genomic characteristics, a reductionistic approach considering only cancer cells and no consideration of the current standard therapy.
This Special Issue of Pharmaceutics will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the application of Drug Delivery System in Oncology.
