Nanocarriers are colloidal particulate systems which size ranges from 10-1000 nm. They have been successfully utilized in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of various diseases. Targeted delivery of drug molecules is one of the most interesting and challenging endeavours faced in pharmaceutical field, due to the critical and pharmacokinetically specific environment that exists. Nanoparticles are capable of self-assembly and maintaining stability and specificity, which are crucial to drug encapsulation and biocompatibility. Over these years, cancer targeting treatment has been greatly improved by new tools and approaches based on nanotechnology.
