Breast cancer is the most common and lethal cancer type in women worldwide. Therapeutic strategies with better selectivity, such as active targeting by nanocarriers, are highly desirable. In this mini review, we briefly outline the evolution of nanocarriers culminating in actively targeted systems, the challenges faced when designing such carriers and, finally, the most promising breast cancer targets and possible ligands that can be coupled to the nanocarriers.
