Designing and developing truly tumor-specific prodrugs remains a challenge in the field of cancer chemotherapy. Active targeting strategies, on the one hand, aim at exploiting membrane-associated receptors or antigens for drug delivery; on the other hand, the enhanced vascular permeability and retention of macromolecules in tumor tissue substantiates the concept of passive targeting. Consequently, research efforts have concentrated on conjugating anticancer agents with a wide spectrum of… CONTINUE READING
