Gold nanoparticles can exhibit hyperthermia properties. However, these inorganic nanomaterials cannot be degraded by intrinsic mechanism in human body, bringing up huge safety concerns for the clinical administration. Mesoporous silica nanoparticles have attracted a great deal of attention in last few decades for their application as delivery systems. Mesoporous silica materials can be used as efficient multifunctional nanocarrier for drug delivery, imaging agents, and stimuli-responsive platforms. Nevertheless, the pore size can be a limitation for loading proteins into the preformed mesoporous silica scaffolds.
