Success of nanomedicine has prompted the development of enhanced nanomaterials for clinical applications with particular emphasis in therapy and diagnostics. This has resulted into the significant production of metal oxide particles that hold potential utility in human medicine.

Remarkable evolution has been made in nanoparticle based medicines for theranostic applications in disease management. Diverse metals have been used for development of medicines with a promise to optimize the efficacy of nanomedicines and to improve the current standard of medical and clinical practices.

These particles are recognized to have major applications in drug delivery, diagnostic products, biomarker discovery, and product packaging. Widespread application spectrum of these particles in maintaining human health is expected to dramatically impact the progress of this market in the coming years.

Moreover, metal oxides are observed to have significant role in cancer treatment. Nanoparticle-augmented systems enable high-concentration targeted drug delivery to cancer cells, which in turn, is expected to enhance the usage rate of metal nanoparticles for cancer treatment. Development of drug delivery strategies using nanoparticle approaches are expected to bring about changes effective for cancer treatment.

However, prolonged exposure of nanoparticles adversely affects the human health as well environment thereby restraining their adoption rate. These products are involved in autophagy, oxidative stress, lysosome dysfunction, and the activation of certain signaling pathways, thereby exhibiting toxicity for human health.
