Abstract:
Colorectal cancer is one of the fatal diseases of this era with quite higher incidence rate. Due to a high fatality rate, health organizations and researchers are continuously looking for new and better management options. In this strive, nanotechnology served as a major and novel treatment methodology with betterment and more optimum outcomes. Work is carried out with respect to colo-rectal malignancies where nano-particles are either used as diagnostic tools or they serve as treatment tools for targeted drug delivery to the tumor cells. This all leads to more specific and sensitive drug delivery to site of action thus minimizing the dose associated and non-specific drug delivery side-effects. The following review article will address such efforts and their impact to reduce disease burden, thus improving future prospects of the disease.
