Advanced Theranostic Materials for diagnostic and therapeutic applications

Edited by: Kun Na, Catholic University of Korea, Korea

Theranostic materials are agents that combine diagnostic and therapeutic applications as a single agent to achieve more specialized therapies. One of the important component of theranostic materials as a diagnostic imaging is high sensitivity and specificity to enhance treatment efficacy and safety. Development of target specific imaging probes via targeting antiboidies, peptides and aptamers have been investigated vigorously. In these series, the highly target specific materials that shows outstanding imaging and therapeutic agents will be discussed.

  1. Interest in subcellular organelle-targeting theranostics is substantially increasing due to the significance of subcellular organelle-targeting drug delivery for maximizing therapeutic effects and minimizing s...
