Recent Patents on Polymeric Nanosystems Applications for Anticancer Drug Delivery

María E. Ruiz, Melisa E. Gantner and Alan Talevi

Abstract

Nano-sized drug delivery systems might well be a fundamental tool to overcome some of the major challenges for future treatment of cancer, optimizing drug effectiveness while simultaneously reducing systemic side effects. This chapter is an update on patents related to nanosystems applications to anticancer drug delivery published in the last five years (2010-2015); the chapter focuses on polymeric nanosystems (nanospheres, nanocapsules, hydrogel based nanosystems, dendrimers and polymeric micelles).
