The aim to protect the healthy cells remains one of the prime challenges while designing an anticancer drug and its delivery pathway. With the advent of advanced nanocarriers coupled with stimuli-responsive polymer frameworks, the drug-loaded matrix can efficiently deliver the drug with a negligible impact on the healthy cells. The reinforced linkages (ionic and covalent) between the drug molecule and the polymer help in an enhanced encapsulation, thereby minimizing the faulty delivery and increasing the overall efficacy of the process. Furthermore, the integration of stimuli-responsive properties tunes the material to exhibit more precise functionalities, such as reputing of the polymer network at the desired location when excited with a specific stimulus, harmonizes the process to deliver drug molecules very precisely.
