Background: Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease that requires immediate attention. Oxidative stress that leads to the generation of reactive oxygen species is a contributing factor to the disease progression. Yttrium oxide nanoparticles (Y2O3 NPs) have a profound effect on alleviating oxidative damage.

Methods: The literature related to Y2O3 NPs and oxidative stress has been thoroughly searched using PubMed and Scopus databases and relevant studies from inception until August 2020 were included in this scoping review.

Results: Y2O3 NPs altered oxidative stress-related biochemical parameters in different disease models including diabetes.

Conclusion: Although Y2O3 NPs are a promising antidiabetic agent due to their antioxidant and anti- inflammatory properties, more studies are required to further elucidate the pharmacological and toxicological properties of these nanoparticles.

Keywords: Antioxidants, diabetes mellitus, inflammation, nanoparticles, oxidative stress, reactive oxygen species, yttrium oxide.
