abstract

By all accounts cancer remains the leading cause of death for humans of age less than 85 years old. This is partly because of the fact that there has been success in addressing other competing diseases such as cardiovascular leading to an overall drop in the rate of such disease where as after four decades of research success in cancer therapy remains limited. This places a greater demand on developing new therapies to treat cancer. With recent advances in nanotechnology field as applied in medicine there are new opportunities to detect, more effectively target and treat cancer and monitor the therapy while minimizing the damage to normal tissues and cells.
