Abstract:


The biological applications of nanoparticles have been rapidly advancing in the field of cancer detection and its treatment. Many drug delivery systems have developed and some are still developing that is based on the concept of nanotechnology for cancer diagnosis. These unique systems have the potential to diagnose, treat and terminate the chances of cancer. Captivating fields with many applications have been developed when nanotechnology gets coupled with biotechnology. In this review, many systems have been described which are based on nanotechnology used to treat cancer. Carbon nanotubes, Aptamer, Polymersomes, Dendrimers, Nanoshells and many more have been described in this review. Cancers like Brain cancer, Lung cancer and Breast cancer have been explained with their method of treatment. The review also focuses on the advantage of the different types of a system based on nanoparticles with their application in the treatment of cancer.
