Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles for Recent Photodynamic Therapy Applications

Abstract

In this review, the use of Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles for photodynamic therapy (PDT) applications is described for the year 2017. Since the pioneering works of 2009, the nanosystems involving mesoporous silica nanoparticles gained in complexity with sophisticated core-shell system able to perform multi-imaging and multi-therapies, not only for cancer diseases but also for anti-microbial therapy, atherosclerosis, or Alzheimer disease. Near-Infrared, excitation light based on up-converting systems, X-rays or persitent luminescent systems are described for deeper tissue treatments.
