Highly Biocompatible Drug-Delivery Systems Based on DNA Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology has been widely used in pharmacology and medicine, particularly for developing methods to enhance drug bioavailability and reduce the toxic side effects of drugs, and has given rise to the "nano drug-delivery system." Recent work has demonstrated that DNA nanostructures, which can efficiently penetrate cells and are highly biocompatible, hold considerable potential for use in designing effective nano drug-delivery systems. Here, we briefly review the advantages offered by DNA nanostructures for drug delivery, the various types of currently available drug-delivery systems based on DNA nanostructures, and the cellular uptake of DNA nanostructures.
