Recent advances in functional nanostructured materials for bone-related diseases

Abstract

Bone-related diseases seriously threaten people’s health and researchers have been dedicated to searching for new and effective treatment methods. Nanotechnologies have opened up a new field in recent decades and nanostructured materials, which exist in a variety of forms, are considered to be promising materials in this field. This article reviews the most recent progress in the development of nanostructured materials for bone-related diseases, including osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, bone metastasis, osteomyelitis, myeloma, and bone defects. We highlighted the advantages and functions of nanostructured materials, including sustained release, bone targeting, scaffold-in bone tissue engineering, etc. in bone-related diseases. We also included remaining challenges of these emerging materials.
