Self-Assembled Lipid Nanomedicines for siRNA Tumor Targeting
Lipid-based nanoparticle technology has developed from chemical drug carrier into an efficient multifunctional siRNA tumor targeting delivery system. In this review, we start with an overview of the lipid-based nanomedicine history and the two classes of lipidic vectors for DNA or siRNA delivery. Then we discuss the features of lipid-based nanomedicine that lead to effective tumor targeting and the principles behind. We also discuss nanoparticle surface modification, classes of tumor targeting ligands, and other state-of-the-art strategies for enhancing endosome release primarily focused on lipid-based systems. At the end, we show that multifunctional self-assembled lipid-based nanoparticles could also be versatile delivery vehicles for cancer molecular imaging probes.
