Increasing rate of cancer incidence has put a global demand of high and advanced level of diagnosis methods. Although surgery (surgical treatment), radiotherapy, and chemotherapy are well-known traditional methods for cancer treatment, the use of novel, advanced, and reliable drug delivery methods (nanodrugs, DNA origami, nanoparticles, and exosomes) are now more applicable to reduce the associated side effects of traditional cancer therapies. Therefore, this chapter will review the existing network of smart drugs by using chem-bioinformatic approach towards cancer treatment. In future, the combination of computational tools in smart drug designing for cancer treatment will be path-breaking.
