Abstract / Description

Can animal models help to explore functions of nanoparticles in health and diseases? Over the decades, nanotechnology has rapidly bloomed in a variety of fields and generated a wide range of nanomaterials. Nanoparticles (NPs), approximately 1-100 nm in diameter, make up a particularly innovative symbol of this increasingly growing field. A multitude of NP formulations are still under investigation in the laboratory, such as lipid nanoparticles (LNP), dendrimers, metal-based NPs and extracellular vesicles. NPs exhibit distinct properties, attributed to their increased surface area-to-volume ratio.
