Since the introduction of liposomal formulations of doxorubicin and ambisome only some new drugs have entered the applications. In contrast to this there is a wealth of literature of nanocarriers and how well they could be suited for changing the pharmacokinetic of drugs. I want to show in this lecture what were/are the promises, which we should pursue further, which we could put aside and also what obstacles we have run into so far. One prominent example will be the adsorption of proteins on nanocarrier surfaces. What is it? How can we prevent it? How can we live with them?
