Nanoscale materials hold great promise for both industrial and biomedical applications. Since, cancer is observed as the most dangerous class of disease categorized by uncontrolled cell growth.Thus, nanotechnology, an interdisciplinary research field comprising chemistry, engineering, biology, and medicine, has great potential for early detection, accurate diagnosis, and tailored treatment of cancer.nanoparticles may cause adverse health effects, but the fundamental causeâeffect relationships are ill defined. Thus, the interaction of nanoparticles with biological systems including living cells has become one of the most urgent areas of collaborative research in materials science and biology . The most interesting properties of nanoparticles, that is, the quantum size effect or surface-induced effects, result from their minute size. Nanoparticles are of similar size to typical cellular components and proteins, and thus may bypass natural mechanical barriers, possibly leading to adverse tissue reaction. These nanoparticles can offer unprecedented interactions with biomolecules both on the surface and inside the body cells, which may bring revolution in cancer diagnosis and treatment.The well-studied nanoparticles for targeting cancer include paramagnetic nanoparticles,liposome and gold nanoparticles.

OMICS Group, the medical peer review open access publisher, publishes the work of medical researchers in a manner that exemplifies the highest standards in research integrity. There is a great deal of information out there on scientific topics. However, whether it can be trusted or not is a key issue at present. The main question that often emerges in this aspect is about the review process adopted to screen the articles for publication. One of the most acceptable and proven process adopted in majority reputed international journals is peer reviewing. Medical journals of this publisher are leading peer-reviewed medical journals in the international medical community. Peer Reviewed Medical Journals has been delivering ground-breaking research and scientific discoveries in the field of Medical Sciences.
