The design of internal stimuli-responsive nanocarriers has been extensively used for delivery of various active compounds including drugs, peptides and genes. These nanosystems are not only designed for improved solubility, enhanced bioavailability, and prolonged blood circulation time, furthermore, they can be tailored chemically to achieve selective drug release at the desired sites of action, which can enable them to bypass physiological or pathological obstacles and achieve enhanced… CONTINUE READING
