INTRODUCTION There is broad interest in a targeted strategy that delivers a concentrated therapeutic payload to tumor cells, because of the significant potential for improvements in therapeutic outcomes and reduction of side effects if therapeutics can be delivered only to diseased tissue. AREAS COVERED This review describes how the coupling chemistry and surface charge effects of peptide labeling in nanoparticle drug delivery strategies have proved difficult to control, resulting in many… CONTINUE READING
