With its highly proliferative, infiltrative, and invasive properties, glioma is the most common malignant primary brain tumor, and 57% of them are glioblastoma multiforme, with a median survival time of only 18 months. However, facing the great challenges from blood-brain barrier and blood-brain tumor barrier, the drug treating for glioma remain non-targeted with low efficiency, which urgently need a new drug. Due to its plastic, low-toxic, targeted nature, nanotechnology brings hope to glioma treatment. In this review, we will discuss the potential possibility of nanoparticles in the treatment of gliomas based on targeted drug delivery system.
