Nanomedicine for targeted drug delivery

Author affiliations


In recent years, nanoparticles have played an ever increasing role in biomedical research and clinical applications. The unique physical properties of nanomaterials are being exploited in the field of nanomedicine for applications as diverse as drug delivery and targeting, MRI contrast enhancement, gene therapy, biomarkers, targeted hyperthermia and many others. This review focuses on the design, synthesis and unique properties of nanoparticles used in nanomedicine as well as on clinical uses for both diagnosis and treatment of disease.
