Abstract

Nanotechnology has potential to revolutionize diagnosis and therapy of diseases in the central nervous system through nanotheranostics. This simply states that a nanocarrier can be designed in an ?all-in-one? approach to facilitate both the functions of a diagnostic and a therapeutic drug. There are many challenges that must be overcome for these nanocarriers to become a successful design, but if resolved nanocarriers could pave the way for personalised medicine. This review highlights several new ideas behind nanotheranostics design and testing with a particular focus on cancerous tumours in the brain.
