Why is it important?

Gold nanoparticles, carbon dots, and upconversion nanoparticles have lately emerged as the most promising prospects for cancer diagnosis, therapy, and monitoring out of all the fluorescent nanoparticles available.


The current development in tailoring the characteristics of these developing nanoparticles, as well as their use for cancer diagnostics and therapy, is discussed in this review. In addition, the potential for subcellular imaging of these particles is discussed.
