Triggering Mechanisms of Thermosensitive Nanoparticles Under Hyperthermia Condition.


Nanoparticle-based hyperthermia is an effective therapeutic approach that allows time- and site-specific treatment with minimized off-site effects. The recent advances in materials science have led to design a diversity of thermosensitive nanostructures that exhibit different mechanisms of thermal response to the external stimuli. This article aims to provide an extensive review of the various triggering mechanisms in the nanostructures used as adjuvants to hyperthermia modalities. Understanding the differences between various mechanisms of thermal response in these nanostructures could help researchers in the selection of appropriate materials for each experimental and clinical condition as well as to address the current shortcomings of these mechanisms with improved material design.
