Hydrogels have emerged as an unique and potential transporters for the target drug delivery systems in cancer
therapy. Cancer is a terrible disease extracting toll on human health across the world probably due to several drawbacks of
the conventional cancer treatments. However, hydrogels facilitate the modern and improved prospects for the treatment of
cancer with minimum cytotoxic effects to the healthier cells or tissues. Besides, the easy tailoring associated with the
structural features and high biocompatibility of hydrogels have attracted enough attention and offer them as a strong tool
for the development of nanomedicine. This review is devoted to update the current studies related to hydrogels and their
applications as vectors for cancer chemotherapy.
Keywords: Biocompatibility, cancer chemotherapy, drug delivery, hydrogels, nanomedicine.
