Phytosphingosine grafted poly (L-amino acid)-derivatives were synthesized and their various self-assembled structures were studied as carriers for anticancer drugs and phytosphingosine itself. By controlling the grafting ratio of phytosphingosine to poly (L-amino acid)-derivative backbone polymers, self-assembled structures of diverse morphology were prepared and their unique self-assembling behavior was studied. The objective of this thesis was to design the adequate self-assembled structures to efficiently deliver anticancer drugs and phytosphingosine and to enhance anticancer therapeutic actions of phytosphingosine. In chapter 2, a series of poly (2-hydroxyethyl L-aspartamide)-g-phytosphingosine, PHEA-$\it{g}$-PHS with different degree of substitution (DS) of PHS, was prepared and their self-assembling behavior was investigated. Spherical micelle-like aggregates was identified for physical delivery of phytosphingosine with optimized physicochemical properties including a uniform and nanoscopic size, low critical aggregation concentration, enhanced kinetic stability, and high loading capacity of drug, which were characterized with DLS, TEM, and fluorescence spectroscopy. For application as intracellular drug carriers, the uptake mechanism of polymeric micelle-like aggregates and phytosphingosine loaded ones were studied with confocal laser scanning microscopy and flow cytometery. Polymeric micelle-like aggregates from PHEA-$\it{g}$-PHS was effectively localized in the entire cytososol even though they do not have any ligands specifically to interact with the cells on their surface. The uptake studies at endocytosis inhibition conditions suggested that the internalization of the aggregates was temperature and energy-dependent process and the colocalization of endosomes-specific marker confirmed the mechanism of uptake is to be endocytosis. The uptake of the aggregates was increased with incubation time and concentration of polymers. The trafficking studie...
