Nanotechnology is the rapidly developing subdivision of technology having significant benefits in clinical practices especially in cancer diagnosis, treatment and management. Nanotechnology can assist to have better diagnosis with less harmful effects. It has capacity to detect even a single cancerous cell in the toxic drugs to the cancerous cells. This article reviews current nanotechnology platform for anti-cancer drug delivery, including polymeric nanoparticles, liposomes, dendrimers, nanoshells, carbon nanotubes, superparamagnetic nanoparticles, nucleic acid based nanoparticles (DNA, RNAi, ASO), fullerenes, quantum dots, nanobubbles, paramagnetic nanoparticles, nanosomes, gold nanoparticles. This review article covers the advantages, challenges and potential of nanoparticles.
