Chapman, M. and Pascu, S. I., 2012. Nanomedicines design: approaches towards the imaging and therapy of brain tumours. Journal of Nanomedicine and Nanotechnology, S4, 0006.
Nanotechnology has potential to revolutionize diagnosis and therapy of diseases in the central nervous system through nanotheranostics. This simply states that a nanocarrier can be designed in an ‘all-in-one’ approach to facilitate both the functions of a diagnostic and a therapeutic drug. There are many challenges that must be overcome for these nanocarriers to become a successful design, but if resolved nanocarriers could pave the way for personalised medicine. This review highlights several new ideas behind nanotheranostics design and testing with a particular focus on cancerous tumours in the brain.
