Surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are the most common methods of combating cancer diseases. Despite several successes in treatment, it is necessary to develop better strategies that are capable of destroying cancer cells while limiting off-target damage of nonmalignant cells. Nanotechnology offers exciting options for the siteselective delivery of current treatments to cancer cells [1]. Nanoparticle (NP)-based therapeutics involve the ability to engineer novel nanoscale platforms that can…
