About this Research Topic
Nanoparticles have been used in therapy and treatment of tissues in several scientific reports. The realm of nanoengineering encompasses nano-scale particles, systems, and devices by which engineering of performance would be possible. For instance, cancer therapy through magnetic nanoparticle-based hyperthermia treatment was the subject of several reports. However, the need for decoration of the surface or manipulation of the bulk of the nanoparticles with molecules like polymers has been the reason why such nanoparticles were exclusively engineered by specific research centers.
Although the reports on bioengineered particles in cancer treatment are vast, there remains a need for further classification of the synthesis, effectiveness and safety of such nanoparticles. Thus, a collection in which a broad scope of research disciplines collate the main achievements in the field so far as well as the challenges encountered in the translation from bench towards animal and human-based applications, is necessary.
In this Research Topic, we encourage authors to submit articles covering the following sub-topics:
1) Purposeful synthesis of nanoparticles for cancer therapy
2) Challenging aspects of using nanoparticles in cancer treatment
3) Responsive nanoparticles for cancer therapy
4) Tissue compatibility and inflammation of nanoparticles
5) protein nanocarrier in cancer therapy
6) Carbonaceous nanoparticles in cancer therapy
7) Nanoparticles and nanomedicine: A juncture for cancer therapy
8) Breast cancer benefited from engineered nanoparticles
9) Polylysine based nanoparticle for cancer therapy
10) Cationic polymer for cancer treatment: Opportunities and challenges
Keywords: Nanoparticles, Cancer Therapy, Bioengineering, Biomaterials
