Recent Progress of Nanoparticles Used in the Diagnosis of Different Types of Diseases
Pp. 39-56 (18)
Nanoparticles used in the detection of biomolecules are being possibly used
due to their physical and chemical properties that optimize them with unique
characteristics. These properties enable the diagnosis of several disease conditions to
make them available for treatment. This study is intended to discuss the emergence of
this area and help the researchers in further progress in this field.
This study discusses the disadvantages of the use of currently available methods for
diagnostic purposes. It also examines the advantages of the use of nanoparticles in this
field of study. This study reviews the properties of metallic nanoparticles including
gold and silver, and also quantum dot, silica nanoparticles, etc.
Nanotechnology has extended the limitation of the current diagnostic procedures. The
potential of using nanoparticles in the diagnosis of diseases is unlimited. Safety study is
needed for in vivo uses. Nanobiotechnology in clinical uses will play a valuable role in
the future development of nanomedicines also.
