Technol Cancer Res Treat. 2023 Jan-Dec:22:15330338231160391. doi: 10.1177/15330338231160391.

Abstract

Nano-constructs of biocompatible polymers have drawn wide attention owing to their potential as theranostics for simultaneous therapy and detection of cancer. The present mini review summarizes various nano-architectures of polymers that have been developed as theranostic agents for the simultaneous treatment and diagnosis of cancer in a single platform. Additionally, research prospects of polymeric cancer theranostics for the future have been highlighted.

Keywords: biocompatible; cancer; nano-architectures; polymer; theranostic.
