Responsive theranostic nanoparticles

Abstract:

The development and use of nanotechnology towards theranostics (all-in-one disease diagnostics and therapeutic delivery) have been increasing in popularity in recent years, in particular the use of high capacity of nanomaterials to transport both imaging and therapeutic agents into pathological tissues or abnormal cells. In this work, biocompatible mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) that can be reliably endocytosed by cells are employed in the investigation of novel cancer treatment an...
