The application of nanotechnology in the field of drug delivery systems has attracted much attention in the latest decades. Recent breakthroughs have demonstrated that nanoparticle-based drug delivery platforms are an excellent alternative for the efficient delivery of, not only low molecular weight therapeutic agents, but for the release of genes and proteins as well. In the case of intracellular protein delivery, these nanovehicles can accomplish critical functions to achieve the optimal herapeutic effect of protein drugs. For example, one of the roles of nanoparticles is to protect proteins from premature degradation within the biological environment.
