Gene therapy as a potential method for treatment of genetic disorders and other malignancies as well as treatment of many cancers has attracted a great amount of attention in recent years. Current research focuses on stable and smart drug/gene delivery systems, including controlled release. Smart nanostructures have been considered as a promising approach when applied to drug and gene delivery systems, and could solve the problems related to the inefficient transfer of medication to the affected cells. The book includes chapters on Introduction to drug/gene delivery systems, Smart nanostructures, Aptamer-based nanostructures, Protein-based nanostructures, and future perspective of Smart drug/gene delivery systems.
