The emergence of nanoscale drug delivery systems provides new opportunities for targeting the delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs and has achieved excellent results. In recent years, with the rise in the concept of intelligent drug delivery systems, the design and preparation of carriers have become more and more complicated, which is not conducive to clinical transformation. Researchers are gradually focused on biomimetic nanoscale drug delivery systems, trying to combine the physicochemical properties of nanoscale carriers with the natural biological functions of endogenous substances, so as to boost tumor targeting delivery. In this article, we first classify and introduce biomimetic nanoscale drug delivery systems, and then emphasize their unique biological functions. The biomimetic nanoscale drug delivery systems have the advantages of simple preparation, powerful functions, and low immunogenicity, having a good application prospect.

Keywords: Biomimetic drug delivery system, Tumor targeting, Cell, Protein, Immunotherapy, Nanoparticle.
