Nanomedicine in Oncology

In the past few decades, significant progress has been made in the treatment and diagnosis of tumours. However, side effects, drug resistance and early-stage diagnosis remain challenges that will dampen the clinical outcomes. Nanomedicine that uses nanobiotechnology to deliver anti-cancer drugs or bioimaging reagents has had a great impact on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, e.g., Abraxane, Doxil, Ferumoxsil etc. In the meantime, cancer immunotherapy has generated durable tumour inhibition. However, the initial success was dampened by its low response rate.
