Title : Nanotechnology for cancer treatment


Treatment of cancer using nanoparticle-based approaches being explored extensively to overcome the drawbacks associated with conventional treatment. Progress in nanotechnology for cancer therapy has led to the development of smart nanoformulations which improve the intracellular delivery of drugs due to their augmented multi-functionality and targeting potential. Smart nanoformulations are nano range particles which release the drug in accordance with the biological stimuli pre-existing at the disease site. This chapter summarizes most of the recent patents related to smart nano preparations for cancer therapy. Several polymeric nanoparticles were patented that destroy tumors by thermal energy deposition and thus enhance tumor therapy. Gold nanoparticles can absorb light strongly and convert photon energy into heat quickly and efficiently, escalating the temperature of a tumor cell (41°C – 141°C) and thus destroying cancerous cells. Specifically, coupling metallic nanoparticle properties with pH-sensitive targeting, resulted in an enhanced anti-tumor effect as observed in recently granted patents.


Dr. Chetna Jain studied chemistry at the Dr. B.R.A. University , Agra, India in 2002 . She then joined the chemistry department as a research scholar in 2004 at Institute of Basic Science Khandari , Dr. B.R.A. University, Agra , under the supervision of Dr. Rajesh Dhakarey (Professor & Head department of Chemistry ). She received her Ph.D. degree in 2009 at the same. After getting her Ph.D. degree she engaged herself in teaching. She has more than 11 years teaching experience . She participates in many conferences, workshops and webinars. At present she is an Assistant professor at Gurugram University, Gurugram, Haryana, India and working as a teacher, guide and mentor of her students.
