Short Peptides as Anticancer Therapeutics
Short peptides have attracted increasing interest due to their unique advantages and a wide range of possibilities. A growing number of scientific reports draw our attention to the tumor-related short peptides being a hot topic in recent time. This mini-review is aimed at a summary of the current state-of-the-art strategies in relation to anti-cancer therapies and peptide-based scaffold for the design of innovative agents, and future development of clinicalapplications.We briefly discuss a great potential of short peptides in either cancer diagnosis, as effective biomarkers, or antitumor therapy via various approaches. Among the latter, supramolecular biochemistry has key importance.
