Advances in protein engineering have revolutionized nanomedicine by introducing novel nanocarriers for delivery of cancer therapeutics. Designing assemblies that simultaneously incorporate therapeutics and target the site of disease has been the focus of recent studies. Such devices have been developed to behave dynamically in response to certain cues to trigger drug release. Immunoliposomes have been regarded as an attractive drug targeting vehicle for cancer treatment. In the present review, we focus on recent advances in the design of immunoliposomes incorporating a variety of chemotherapeutics that simultaneously exhibit specific target-cell interactions and stimuli-sensitivity. We provided an overview of different stimuli-responsive immunoliposomes that are capable of controlling release of drug in response to either exogenous (temperature, light, and magnetic field) or endogenous (changes in pH and enzyme concentration) stimuli. We have discussed examples of stimuli-sensitive immunoliposomes with respect to each stimuli and their therapeutic potential for cancer treatment. © 2016, Springer International Publishing AG.
