Dendrimer-Based RNA Interference Delivery for Cancer Therapy
RNA interference (RNAi) has emerged as a promising tool for cancer treatment. A strenuous ongoing effort for translation of RNAi into clinically acceptable therapy is the development of vectors for efficient and targeted RNAi delivery. In this chapter, we review RNAi-based cancer treatment and the utility of dendrimers in RNAi delivery.
