Recent advances in functional nanostructured materials for bone-related diseases

Author affiliations

Abstract

Bone-related diseases seriously threaten people's health and research studies have been dedicated towards 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 highlight the advantages and functions of nanostructured materials, including sustained release, bone targeting, scaffolding in bone tissue engineering, etc., in bone-related diseases. We also include the remaining challenges of these emerging materials.
