Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) are an inhomogenic class of peptides with the ability to translocate in cells and to carry attached cargos with them inside. Owing to this striking ability the further development and application of CPP-based delivery strategies have steadily emerged during the past years. The following review aims to summarize some of these recent concepts and to higlight the current role of CPPs in cancer therapy.
