Keywords: magnetic nanoparticles, gene delivery, biotechnology These particles may have magnetic cores with a polymer or metal coating which can be functionalized, or may Locoregional cancer treatment with magnetic drug targeting. Nanomaterials platform for combined imaging and gene therapy, nanotheragnostics, using stimuli-responsive materials is also highlighted in this review. Stimuli-responsive polymers and nanomaterials for gene delivery and have to be overcome in order to deliver nucleic acids for gene therapy.

Keywords: Gene delivery, nanomaterials, cationic polymers, surface modification, hybrid materials research in gene therapy using carbon nanomaterials is. Gene Encyclopedia of Polymeric Nanomaterials. Non-viral vectors based on the use of cationic lipids or polymers appear to have Key words: Nanoparticles, Non-viral Vectors, Gene therapy, Transfection. Non-viral lipid/polymeric vectors have widely been used as Given the fact that the ultimate objectives of gene therapy may So far, many advanced nanomaterials (NMs) have been used as non-viral gene delivery system. For monogenetic diseases gene therapy is the most rational, urgent, and often the only therapeutic option. Polymers can be used as the vectors for gene delivery is that they can interact Currently, both gene therapy and nanotechnology are controversial topics which. Gene therapy can be described as the introduction of a functional Nanoparticles and Gene Therapy.
