Therapeutics & Carriers


Therapeutics include treatments in which nanoscale materials are used as the active therapeutic agent or nanoscale materials are used in combination with another form of treatment (adjuvant) that together provide better overall results (e.g., thermal therapies). Drug delivery and in vivo imaging primarily covers nano-objects as excipients that are capable of transporting a therapeutic or diagnostic agent either on its surface, within this bulk structure or within an internal cavity.
