Surface engineered Amphora subtropica frustules using chitosan as a drug delivery platform for anticancer therapy

Abstract:

Drug delivery using synthetic mesoporous nanomaterials, including porous silicon, has been extensively used to ameliorate the constraints currently experienced with conventional chemotherapy. Owing to the amazing potential, the silica based nanomaterials have been used widely. Nevertheless, synthetic nanomaterial involves high cost, lack of scalability, and the use of toxic substances limits its utilization. These issues can be overcome by the use of nature generated nanoscale materials, such...
