Nanoparticles are the moieties that have undergone the most investigation in recent years for biomedical applications. They are applied in the field of oncology in the same way as in other branches of biomedical nanotechnology. Regarding cancer, nanoparticles, and especially magnetic nanoparticles, are studied for diagnosis, drug delivery, gene delivery, bioseparation, hyperthermia, phototherapy, chemotherapy, imaging mechanisms, among other uses. Different techniques are used to prepare… CONTINUE READING
