Polymeric Nanoparticles

Polymers have become attractive in formulating drug-loaded nanoparticles for treating cancers due to the tailorability of polymers, biocompatibility and biode-gradability properties, various nanoparticle synthesis methods, versatility of drug-loading techniques, and controllable drug release characteristics. In this section, common fabrication methods will be briefly summarized followed by drug-loading techniques to demonstrate how drug release characteristics of polymeric nanopar-ticles can be manipulated.
