Nanomaterials to enhance the effect of ionizing radiation
Edited by Chun Li (MD Anderson Cancer Center USA) and Fred Currell (University of Manchester, UK)
The unique physicochemical properties of nanoparticles have made them especially attractive for mediating enhanced antitumor activity with various energy sources, such as light, magnetic field, radiofrequency, microwave, and ionizing radiation. Enhancement of radioresponse with nanoparticles is attributed to increased drug delivery, synergist interaction with different modes of cell killing, and/or increased cellular exposure to ionizing radiation beams. This collection in Cancer Nanotechnology aims to cover a broad scope of current research on the interaction between nanoparticles and radiation, and provide an outlook for clinical translation of nanotechnology in radiotherapy, one of the pillars of anticancer therapies.
