Protein/ Hormone Based Nanoparticles as Carriers for Drugs Targeting Protein-Protein Interactions
Objective: The objective of this review is to suggest a novel approach for targeting PPIs. By using protein nanospheres and nanocapsules, a promising field of study can be emerged.
Methods: To solidify this argument, PPIs and their biological significance was discussed, same as their role in hormone signaling.
Results: We shed the light on the drugs that targets PPI and we suggested the use of nanovectors to encapsulate these drugs to possibly achieve better results.
Conclusion: Protein based nanoparticles, due to their advantages, can be suitable carriers for drugs targeting PPIs. This can open a new opportunity in the emerging field of multifunctional therapeutics.
