Synthetic lipoprotein is an effective carrier of targeted delivery for drugs. It has the
very small size, good biocompatibility, suitable half-life, and specific lipoprotein receptorbinding
capacity. Compared with the traditional natural lipoprotein, synthetic lipoprotein not
only retains the original biological characteristics and functions, but also exhibits the excellent
characteristics in drug delivery. Herein, the advantages, development, applications, and prospect
of synthetic lipoproteins as drug carriers were summarized.
