Mesoporous silica nanoparticles in nanomedicine applications

Mesoporous silica nanoparticles in nanomedicine applications

Journal of Materials Science. Materials in Medicine 29(5): 65

In the last few years mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) have gained the attention of the nanomedicine research community, especially for the potential treatment of cancer. Although this topic has been reviewed before, periodic updates on such a hot topic are necessary due to the dynamic character of this field. The reasons that make MSNs so attractive for designing controlled drug delivery systems lie beneath their physico-chemical stability, easy functionalisation, low toxicity and their great loading capacity of many different types of therapeutic agents. The present brief overview tries to cover some of the recent findings on stimuli-responsive mesoporous silica nanocarriers together with the efforts to design targeted nanosystems using that platform. The versatility of those smart nanocarriers has promoted them as very promising candidates to be used in the clinic in the near future to overcome some of the pitfalls of conventional medicine.
