Multi-Component Drug Delivery of Paclitaxel

  • Zhengwei Zhang School of Science, China Pharmaceutical University


Co-delivery systems have been proved to be of much benefit to the anti-cancer drug field. In order to make these drugs successful, nano-particles usage has been promoted. The mini-review has brought forward some of the most prominent co-delivery developments in the field, especially with paclitaxel. The discussion here is never meant to be comprehensive, but to give some new trends and highlights within this area.
