This Thematic Series reports the latest results on advanced and integrated solutions for tumor visualization and therapy based on nanomaterials. The main focus is novel solutions and nanomaterials that enhance anticancer therapy efficacy and reduce health care costs at the hospital. The integration of novel nanoparticles (nanosilicon, metal oxides, upconverting, carbon-based) into the pre-clinical/clinical environment has the potential to yield highly efficient and cost-effective cancer theranostics. Topics covered in this Thematic Series include:

  • Nanosilicon, metal or metal oxide, upconverting nanoparticles, and carbon-based nanostructures for cancer theranostics: synthesis and characterization
  • Surface functionalization and modification of nanostructures with anticancer drugs
  • Nanostructure toxicity and accumulation studies
  • Light-based techniques (Raman, MALDI-TOF, fluorescence microscopy, OCT), CT, MRT, and photo-acoustic tomography for in vivo and in vitro studies
  • Photodynamic, sonosensitizing and high frequency sensitizing methods as possible cancer therapy
