Protein therapeutics are increasingly important for the treatment of many diseases; however, intracellular protein delivery remains a considerable challenge. To address this challenge, drug nanorods have emerged as new nanocarriers for enhanced intracellular protein delivery via bypassing endo-lysosomes, which was called a “drug-delivering-drug platform”.
