- Layered double hydroxides (LDHs), also known as anionic nanoclays or hydrotalcite-like compounds, have attracted a great deal of interest for their potential as delivery carriers. In this article, we describe the cellular uptake behaviors and uptake pathway of LDHs in vitro and in vivo, which can not only explain the mechanism by which high efficacy of biomolecules delivered through LDH nanocarriers could be obtained, but also provide novel strategies to enhance their delivery efficiency. Toxicological effects of LDHs in cell lines and in animal models are also present, aiming at providing critical information about their toxicity potential, which should be carefully considered for their biomedical application. Understanding the uptake behaviors, uptake mechanism and toxicity of LDHs in terms of dose-response relationship, diverse physicochemical properties and interaction with different biological systems is important to optimize delivery efficiency as well as biocompatibility. © 2011 Future Medicine Ltd.
