Abstract

Metal nanoparticles have reportedly played a beneficial and effective role in cancer therapy that offers improved targeting and delivery of drugs. Metallic nanoparticle-based systems not only provide simultaneous diagnosis and treatment, but also allow controlled and selective release of drugs. Lung cancer is the second deadliest cancer among the known types of malignancy. The present chapter addresses the metal nanoparticulate technology and its applications in lung cancer therapy.
