Gold-Based Nanoparticles for Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women worldwide. The major impediment to finding cures for malignant breast cancers is the development of resistances to therapeutic treatments by tumors. The development of nanoparticles may provide an important opportunity for improvement in breast cancer treatments. Nanoparticles coupled with the specific targeting agents have the ability to track and eliminate breast cancer cells. In this paper, we present gold-based nanoparticles for breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. The proposed design can become a new method for the treatment of breast cancer tumors. Our design can eventually lead to clinical trials which will benefit breast cancer patients worldwide.
