Conclusions

The amount of research in targeted, polymeric nanoparticles for cancer imaging and therapy has increased dramatically in the past 5-10 years. Seeing actual products using targeted therapies has no doubt fueled that work. In the next decade, we will certainly see products, whether with polymeric nanoparticles or some other type of delivery system, using folate receptors and carrying imaging agents. All of these technologies, driven by the fields of fundamental immunology, biochemistry, polymer chemistry, and biomedical engineering, are bringing us closer to the time when cancer may be treated on an individual basis. One patient's diagnosis and treatment will be unique to her condition and will be the most effective treatment possible for her. Until other scientists determine how to stop cancer from occurring, those mentioned in this chapter and many more besides them are doing their best to eliminate cancer.
