Efficient intracellular trafficking and targeted delivery to the site of action are essential to overcome the current drawbacks of cancer therapeutics. Cell Penetrating Peptides (CPPs) offer the possibility of efficient intracellular trafficking, and, therefore the development of drug delivery systems using CPPs as cargo carriers is an attractive strategy to address the current drawbacks of cancer therapeutics. Additionally, the possibility of incorporating Tumor Targeting Peptides (TTPs) into… CONTINUE READING
