A Review on Applications of Nanoparticles in Cancer Treatment

Sunila Mushtaq, Tahir Iqbal


Cancer has become the leading cause of death. It is caused by disorder in the division and growth of cells. It can be treated after the confirmation of growth of cancerous cells. Conventionally it is done by x-rays or CT scans. Then the genes are destroyed or damaged or by controlling the blood supply to other genes. Now advancements in nanotechnology have enabled the physicians to treat the cancer. In this review we will discuss the recent developments in the cancer nanotechnology and how in a better way cancer can be treated in its early stages.
