Abstract:


The advances and the impact of nanostructured systems on therapeutics constitute a constantly evolving reality. New strategies have been developed for drug delivery control and for directing these systems to the targeted site improving the therapy. In this commentary, the lectins are briefly reviewed; their fundamentals and the proposed applications as ligands in nanostructured drug delivery systems are discussed.

Keywords:

Nanotechnology, nanomedicine, proteins, targeting, drug delivery system, ligands, strategies.
